GOST launches streamlined vessel tracking interface, new antennas

(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — GOST (Global Ocean Security Technologies), a world leader in marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, has announced its next-generation vessel tracking interface – the GOST Specter.

The intuitive website easily works on mobile and desktop browsers on any device. The secure Specter interface is streamlined and user-friendly and allows geo-fence control and alerts, remote arm/disarm functionality, as well as real-time GPS tracking of a vessel anywhere in the world. Designed to take full advantage of Inmarsat’s new constellation of satellites, Inmarsat Data Pro (IDP), which communicates with GOST’s latest vessel tracking systems – the GOST IDP Series – the new interface offers users almost real-time satellite control. Specter retains a 90-day tracking history and text/email alerts. It is also capable of monitoring multiple vessels for fleet management. Created specifically for private tracking and alerting of events, the GOST IDP Series vessel tracking and monitoring devices also allows family and friends to provide support if a boat is in peril or notify maritime authorities if there is a deviation from the float plan.

Specter allows boat owners to link to vessel data from a corresponding Nav-Tracker IDP device. Once users log in, Specter displays a global map with icons showing locations of all vessels in the user’s fleet, anywhere on Earth except the extreme poles. Each icon can be clicked to review expanded details. When a vessel is selected, the date and time of the last report received is displayed, which can be adjusted to the user’s preference. It also shows the most recent latitude and longitude, boat speed, heading, status of whether security system is armed or disarmed, nearby points-of-interest, as well as antenna input voltage and signal strength. From this screen the vessel can be polled for its current location and the geo-fence or full system can be remotely armed/disarmed, depending on which version of the IDP GOST system is installed. An armed system will provide immediate notification of any movement or, for users with a full security system, an audible alarm if triggered. Tracking history can also be displayed on a map, which is embedded in the interface. Users can customize their screen, to overlay satellite imagery or set it to Night Mode for easy viewing.

GOST also has announced new antennas offering greater performance for its line of vessel tracking systems.

The new GOST IDP Series supports a wide range of greatly enhanced speed, security and location-based machine-to-machine (M2M) services. With 100 times higher messaging capability, lower power consumption, 99.99 percent reliability as mandated by the International Maritime Organization, global coverage with the exception of the poles and two-way satellite service, the new IDP Series offers customers the most reliable way to track their vessels from anywhere in the world.

The new IDP Series command and control interface is managed by the new GOST Specter tracking website launched earlier this year at the Miami Boat Show. Offering mobile and desktop access, the Specter interface offers a streamlined and user-friendly control of geo-fence monitoring and alerts, remote arm/disarm functionality, as well as real-time GPS tracking. The interface retains a 90-day tracking history and text/email alerts. It is also capable of monitoring multiple vessels for fleet management.
