Thuraya and FrontM are launching Thuraya SatTrack, a cloud-based tracking and monitoring service to increase operational efficiencies on board fishing vessels. SatTrack is designed for the Thuraya MarineStar voice, tracking and monitoring system and will become available to users very soon. Thuraya SatTrack is a low-cost, turnkey subscription service that provides interactive, live fleet tracking to monitor vessels.

SatTrack enables operations with detailed maps, up-to-date weather layers and customised alerts with position reporting. Thuraya SatTrack helps MarineStar users stay in command, gain market advantage and contribute to sustainable fisheries by improving compliance with national and international regulations. It provides critical updates about vessels anywhere within Thuraya's network, which covers 80 percent of the world's fishing hubs.

Subscribers can also use it to exchange data remotely, establish and monitor geofences as well as access fish-catch reports in instantly, thereby reassuring regulatory bodies and buyers that the catch brought ashore is both legally caught and fresh. SatTrack supports crew safety and its alert mechanism makes it ideal for search and rescue operations. 

Beneficiaries include civil defence agencies and organisations with varied maritime interests such as police, port authorities, coast guards, transport authorities, coastal surveillance bodies, agriculture and fisheries ministries. Thuraya SatTrack can be accessed through smart devices including PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Its dashboard features the required data on the MarineStar terminal.
