LRIT Conformance Testing
Pole Star is the world leader in LRIT testing and, to date, has completed more than 40,000 LRIT tests on behalf of global ship operators. Pole Star is an Authorised Testing ASP for over 90 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.
LRIT Conformance Test Reports
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.
To date, Pole Star has issued nearly 25,000 Certificates on behalf of over 90 Flags. Standard processing time is three days, but to assist ship operators with urgent requirements, Pole Star offers a Fast Track service, which allows for the Certificate to be issued within 24 hours.
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.
Pole Star offers a LRIT equipment package, directly or through our partners. Contact your closest distributor for more information.
