INMARSAT have announced their D+ network services will be retired by 30th December 2014.
It is estimated 40% of vessels above 500GRT installed with IMO, SOLAS X1.2.6 Ship Security Alert Systems operate on the D+ service as a standalone system and will be required to upgrade their SSAS transceivers by 2014. Skywave communications and Satamatics (now Honeywell) are the only manufacturers of the INMARSAT D+ transceivers.
