Annex V is a communication and security package specified by Brazilian oil company Petrobras to be used on vessels that support its oil production operations in Brazil.
The system core is based on a VSAT antenna, connected to a router and a set of other equipment, including several cameras connected to a DVR.
The system also provides VoIP telephony and a data connection to the Petrobras network, for videoconferencing, vessel tracking, digital trunking radio and radiotelex for command dispatch.
This equipment allows the Petrobras central station to remotely monitor and record all offshore operations, including procedures on board, with the aim of producing better incident analysis. The satellite traffic and network is operated by Petrobras itself.
