Track By Distance

Vessel Tracking by Distance

Track by Distance  or TBD, developed by FMS, is a vessel tracking feature for Orbcomm IDP and ST Terminal for and economic use of prepaid Airtime Units, for the benefit of the customers.

In addition to Time-based Automatic Position Reports (APR), TBD Application enables the Terminals to sends the APR at set distance travelled, and that is really a true tracking of a vessel.

For Example, a Vessel is set on 2 APR per day, and 20-mile distance, the vessel will just send 2 APR/day while she is not moving, i.e. in port or at anchorage; and automatically starts APR every 20 miles while she is moving, i.e. making way for the voyage.

This feature not only helps to avoid unnecessary APR, but also saves the Airtime, Units, while the vessel is not moving. It ALERTS the CSO / Managers of the vessels against unauthorised movement of the vessel.
