The SAILOR 6150 mini-C Distress is the most sophisticated, fully approved dedicated Vessel Management System (VMS) and tracking terminal available on the market. In addition to offering full VMS and tracking functionality, it also offers Non- SOLAS distress functionality and
the reception of EGC messages and SafetyNet/FleetNet, which provides a significant boost to the safety of your vessel and crew.
Designed for extreme conditions
The system is a single, self-contained and sealed terminal, housing both antenna and transceiver. This design approach has proven to be rugged and reliable, especially
for use aboard the harsh environment of a professional fishing vessel and with the terminal’s 50 channel GPS module and omni-directional antenna, satellite fix and
position are ensured even under the most adverse conditions.
Maritime Distress Calling
The SAILOR 6150 mini-C Distress features the trusted Inmarsat-C maritime Non-
SOLAS distress function. This has long been an integral part of safety at sea as
GMDSS. No matter where you go or how rough the sea, pressing the distress button
activates a high priority distress message relayed automatically to the nearest MRCC. The MRCC will respond with rescue coordination activities including EGC
SafetyNet messages to all nearby vessels so assistance may be provided.
Vessel Monitoring System (VMS )
SAILOR 6150 mini-C Distress provides a number of advanced tracking functions.
With GeoFencing you can divide relevantsea areas into a range of geographical
zones meaning you can define special areas of interest where specific reporting
intervals come into effect and also be alerted when your vessel is out of its designated zone.
With the optional TCU programming for advanced monitoring is available with up to 14 I/O pins or 7 output pins, depending on configuration. Power events, antenna
blockage and other events can trigger event reports.
With the SAILOR 6150 mini-C Distress it is easy to send various types of text messages. Simply connect a PC to the terminal and you are ready to receive Enhanced Group Calls or send catch reports at all times. You can also exchange e-mails, fax, SMS, and special messages to other Inmarsat-C users.
Free Enhanced Group Calling (EGC)

drifting goods notifications and distress information about nearby ships or general
information from flag authorities on shore (SafetyNet/FleetNet). EGC reception,
configuration are done easily via the free easyMail PC program.
