PT.Mega Sarana Satelit (PT MSS) Joint venture with PT. Electronic Data Interchange Indonesia (PT EDII) is the Indonesia national LRIT data center operator.

LRIT Conformance Testing

PT. Mega Sarana Satelit and PT EDII is an Authorised Testing ASP for Indonesia Flags and provides operators with a convenient, secure and easy-to-use web-based testing platform, allowing them to initiate a test and review its progress at any time.

The Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) regulation requires operators of ships regulated by SOLAS contracting governments and engaged on international voyages, including passenger ships, cargo ships over 300gt, and Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs), to provide a compliant terminal for the transmission of LRIT information.

LRIT Conformance Test Reports

LRIT Conformance Test Reports are a mandatory requirement for radio surveys and inspection.

LRIT Conformance Test Reports (Certificates) are the only proof of LRIT compliance. The document, which is issued on completion of a successful test, is a mandatory requirement for radio surveys and inspection. This document is required to be kept onboard the ship.

Standard processing time is five days, but to assist ship operators with urgent requirements, PT.MSS and PT EDII offers a Fast Track service, which allows for the Certificate to be issued within 24 hours.

LRIT 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.
