Hellenic Coast Guard deploys Frequentis communication system to enhance SAR

The Hellenic Coast Guard has selected Frequentis and Space Hellas to provide an integrated communication system to enhance search and rescue and maritime safety for the Greek coastline.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The solution design will provide integrated workflow optimisation, improving operators’ situational awareness and enabling informed decision making.  One part of the system will be installed in the Hellenic Coastguard Headquarters in Piraeus and the other part will be installed at the Coastal Radio station in Aspropyrgos.

With Europe now in its return to normal since the outbreak of the pandemic, the system assembly has been able to commence at Frequentis Head Quarters in Vienna and factory testing will soon follow.

“MarTRX was designed with operators in mind. The intuitive user interface includes optimised workflows and organisational best practices that automatically support the operator with their day to day work. MarTRX works seamlessly to integrate all functions so that operators can focus on the results rather than memorising individual processes. We are looking forward to implementing this solution for the Hellenic Coast Guard, supporting their goals for enhanced safety and operator experience,” said Khashayar Saravandi-Rad, Frequentis vice president maritime.

The system is based on the Frequentis maritime communication and information processing product suite MarTRX, a next generation integrated maritime control centre solution that streamlines all communication flows and assets into one consistent user interface, displayed conveniently to the operator. This simplifies complex decision making, even in stressful situations, guiding operators through established workflows, providing easy access to the functions they are most likely to need at each stage.

Frequentis MarTRX is a modular solution that can be designed around the customer need and extended when required to cover both Search and Rescue (SAR) and Maritime Communication (COM), as well as Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) and Coastal Surveillance Systems (CSS).

The system will be delivered in cooperation with Frequentis’ Greek Partner Space Hellas. An eight-year maintenance period is also included during the guaranteed system operation period.

“We are proud to implement such an important project for the safety of our country's territorial waters. The long-term collaboration of Space Hellas with Frequentis and the complex projects that we have completed so far, put the basis for another successful project", said Dr. Ioannis Mertzanis, CEO of Space Hellas. {/mprestriction}
