About "TRIHAWK V650series"
The "TRIHAWK V650 Series" is the JRC standard type of VTS system capable of a medium to large scale of sea area surveillance. This system can integrate the data from 3 radar stations to monitor vessel movements in a wide sea area (100NM). This series can be designed for the Basic and Standard System in accordance with IALA-128.

- Complied with IMO Resolution A.857(20)
The purpose of vessel traffic service is to improve the safety and efficiency of vessel traffic and to protect the environment.
One of the main functions to attain the purpose of VTS is the function of monitoring vessel movements, by which the positions and movements of a number of vessels navigating in the water areas within the multi-radar coverage can be monitored and presented on an electronic chart display screen. Using this function, the VTS operator can transmit proper messages to each vessel and accurate information to various organizations related to ports and routes.
For instance, if a vessel is sailing toward a shallow water area, the operator can foresee a risk of grounding in monitoring the VTS screen. In this case, the VTS operator can call to the vessel via the international VHF communication system (as he can recognize the vessel's name by AIS) and advise the vessel of its risk of grounding by allowing the vessel to have a chance of turning the rudder to avoid the danger of grounding. Thus, the potential impact of such grounding on the sea environment and a resulting economic loss can be prevented. In addition to such risk of grounding, the VTMS allows various alert operations to prevent vessels from various risks such as collisions of vessels, intrusion into a restricted water area, and intrusion of a suspected vessel to a guarded area.
