Compatible hardware

Compatible with a wide-range of hardware.

Inmarsat C equipment already installed on the majority of vessels is frequently used for LRIT compliance. Dedicated terminals based on Inmarsat M2M and Iridium can also be used. For maximum performance or where the existing onboard equipment is not suitable or a stand-alone LRIT solution is required, Pole Star recommends the installation of a dedicated LRIT terminal. Pole Star offers a LRIT equipment package, directly or through our partners.
