The Star2M® network is backed by Iridium®, the Low Earth Orbit global satellite service company offering pole-to-pole coverage, anywhere, anytime.
After setting up your Aid to Navigation, the process of communication begins with the fixture, which transmits signals as an uplink and receives signals from Low Earth Orbiting satellites in the Iridium® network. Signals are then re-transmitted back to earth via a downlink, which can then be accessed exclusively via the Star2M® online secure portal.
Star2M® offers Sealite and Avlite customers the benefit of real time monitoring, control and data management, updating in under a minute, subject to the asset and external conditions.
Star2M® provides a number of StarConnect subscription packages, designed to suit small to large users with a choice of Iridium® data packages available. StarConnect packages are based on the number of assets registered in a customer’s network and the frequency of checks and reporting required by the user.
Star2M® extends cost effectiveness and benefits to the user in other areas with a reduction in maintenance and call out costs, enabling proactive maintenance based on trend analysis, with its most important feature the improvement in safety for maintenance and monitoring staff.
The Star2M® system is designed to enhance the user experience of managing their network of assets. Technical assistance is vital to the efficient operation of Star2M®, and is provided through a dedicated helpdesk and secure web portal, supported by a qualified technical support team.
