UAE’s Atlas Tracks Vessels with Next-Generation Electronic Verification System
Thursday, September 21, 2017 | Comments

Airbus TETRA technology is part of the next-generation electronic verification system to transmit data and information of vessel locations off the coast to the Atlas telecom company in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It will be used to integrate confidential data, such as GPS positioning and text messages, into the Atlas vessel identification system, which is run by a government agency.

Markets in the Middle East are at the forefront of professional mobile radio (PMR) development, and Airbus is applying its hybrid technology combining TETRA and Long Term Evolution (LTE), a statement said.

The Airbus modem transmits voice and data with end-to-end encryption and can be incorporated in supervisory systems, custom telemetry and position tracking. The product is part of the new electronic verification system and contributes to the tracking and identification of registered and unregistered ships off the UAE coast.

The next-generation electronic verification setup consists of radars, long-range cameras, E-Passport trackers, location and correlation servers, as well as command-and-control systems. Atlas has been operating the first generation of this technology for 10 years and is soon to establish its new scheme.
