SEAGULL 5000i Satellite Terminal
The Seagull 5000i is a voice, data and fax satellite terminal with a built-in GPS tracking system specially designed for reliable performance in the harsh maritime and land environment. This affordable, easy-to-install and user-friendly terminal enables users to make satellite voice calls to normal PSTN phones, mobile phones and other satellite phones through the Thuraya satellite network.
Besides supporting SMS services through its easy-to-use menu on the large colour LCD screen on the handset, the Seagull 5000i provides full-duplex, IP-based data communications capabilities through the Thuraya GmPRS technology. These data communication capabilities, coupled with an onboard GPS receiver enables the Seagull 5000i to transmit such information as ship’s identity and ship’s position with date and time stamp necessary for Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) services that is increasingly being made mandatory by many national maritime and fisheries authorities. The user can also take advantage of this internet data connection to check emails, weather reports or just simply for web-browsing. When the optional FaxConnect™ interface box is connected to the Seagull 5000i, the user can also send G3 faxes to other G3 fax machines on a global basis.
Tracking and monitoring functions are user-configurable for fixed time interval or event-triggered operation. They can also be remotely activated by a monitoring centre. An Alert button is available to notify pre-configured contacts during an emergency. When the Alert button is activated, the Seagull 5000i shall immediately send a pre-determined SOS message which includes the time-stamped GPS coordinates of the position to a maximum of three preset contacts for emergency response.
The Seagull 5000i is truly a robust, versatile and cost effective solution for medium-size to small fishing vessels, pleasure boats, patrol boats and any other sea vessels or land vehicles that need a combination of voice telephony, data, fax and trackingfunctions.
