SRT Marine Systems wins Somalia contract (FAO)

SRT Marine Systems (SRT) has received a contract from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to supply a package of specialist AIS Class B transceivers and communication devices, satellite AIS data and a vessel tracking display system in Somalia.

The equipment supply element would be completed this financial year with the supply of S-MDA satellite AIS data ongoing. The project was supported by the Counter Piracy Trust Fund to Support Initiatives of States Countering Piracy off the coast of Somalia.

The system would be used primarily to enhance safety at-sea and fight piracy activities whilst also to track and monitor small local fishing boats in Somalia and assist with safety and prevention of illegal, unregulated and unlicensed (IUU) fishing.
