1.1 System overview
When a ship is under attack, an SSAS report containing ships name and MMSI number, position is sent to up to five locations specified by the ships captain or authorized personnel. Neither audible nor visible alarm is generated while the SSAS report is being transmitted to ensure intruders are not alerted. The SSAS is protected with a password to prevent it from being operated by an unauthorized personnel. The SOLAS Regulation XI-2/6 requires vessels of 500 GT or more constructed before 1 July 2004 to install an SSAS.

2.4 Power supply


The recommended report interval is 1 to 2 hours. Ask the Company Security Officer for appropriate setting. The system is connected to both ships main and alternative source of energy. FELCOM 12 and 15 SSAS is GMDSS equipment, so the emergency supply and the reserve source are connected generally. With FELCOM 16 non-GMDSS, either configuration in the figure below is used to comply with alternative source requirement: PR-240, and connect the common battery or BU-160, Lithium battery exclusive for FELCOM 16 SSAS. The capacity of the battery is decided according to the report interval.

Note)

Note) When the BU-160 is connected to the PR-240, the PR-240 should be modified for automatic power supply switching circuit. Factory modification will be in the August 2004 after.

This page describes point to install FELCOM 15 and/or FELCOM 16 for SSAS system.

3.1 Location of Antenna


1. When two Inmarsat C systems FELCOM 15 and/or FELCOM 16 are installed onboard a ship, two antennas should separate each other 1.5 m or more. 2. The Inmarsat C antenna should be away from FELCOM 15 terminal unit (IC-215) 5 m or more. 3. The Inmarsat C antenna should be away from FELCOM 16 communication unit (IC-216) 3 m or more.

More than 1.5m

More than 3m

More than 5m

FELCOM 16 FELCOM 15

Installation of FELCOM 16 antenna FELCOM 16 is non-GMDSS equipment, which does not need to comply with GMDSS shadow sector requirement. However, the antenna should be separated as far as practicable from the obstacles likely significantly to degrade the performance of the equipment. The location of the antenna unit is decided under the instruction of the Company Security Officer. For example, the antenna is sited on the compass deck.

8. Q&A

8. Q&A
Q1) Which protocol does SSAS report use ? SSAS report is transmitted in the same protocol as routine message. SSAS report is not distress alert message. Q2) Is SSAS alert free of charge ? No, it is not free of charge. Normal message charges apply. One report containing 300 to 500 characters costs about 300 to 400 yen. All SSAS reports are transmitted with Delivery Status ON, requesting to receive chargeable delivery status message. Q3) Is Inmarsat D+ a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) solution ? Yes. Software applications make possible the use of Inmarsat D+ for SSAS. Inmarsat D+ is generally used as a complement to terrestrial systems as a means of tracking vehicles. The SSAS alert from the D+ terminal is sent to the destination via the service provider of which monthly contract charge is about 50 dollars. Q4) How many SSAS alert unit (IC-307) is required ? At least two IC-307s should be installed. A maximum of three IC-307 can be connected to FELCOM 15/16 SSAS system. Q5) Does FELCOM 15/16 SSAS carry the wheel mark (the EC conformity mark) ? No, SSAS is not required to carry the wheel mark. Q6) Which classification society issues the type approval certificate for FELCOM 15/16 SSAS ?

8. Q&A

Q7) What happens when the unit is turned on with the alert button ON ? Please retune the SSAS button into OFF-SATE message appears only on FELCOM 12 and 15 when the system is turned on with the alert button inmost position. FELCOM 16 transmits the Test Message when the system is turned on with the alert button inmost position. Q8) How many operating modes does FELCOM 12, 15 and 16 SSAS have ? There are two operating modes: Normal and SSAS manager. The system starts up in normal mode at every power-on. Q9) How often SSAS report is transmitted ? The report interval is adjustable from 10 minutes to 99 hours 59 minutes. A value between one and two hours is used generally. Factory-default is 2 hours. Ask the Company Security Officer for a proper interval. The capacity of the battery must be taking into account when deciding the interval. The report interval is set for five destinations independently in Manager mode. Q10) Which terminal is selected to the destination type ? SSAS alerts can be delivered to telex, fax, E-mail or DNID. E-mail is selected generally. Q11) How to fill in Other Inf. line? IMO number, Company Security Officer name and Call sign may be entered as Other Inf. If any information is required to be added to the SSAS report, use this line. Q12) Which memory retains SSAS report data ? In FELCOM 15 and 16, SSAS report menu (F5-4) settings and the password are saved onto EEPROM U15 on RF CON/CPU board. U15 also contains FW ID/RT ID, DNID, and ENID. When changing RF CON/CPU board, remove the EEPROM from the old board and put it on new board. As for FELCOM 12, SSAS report menu (F5-4) settings and the password are saved onto Back-up RAM on CPU board in Communication unit Q13) Which priority does SSAS report have ? The SSAS report has the same priority as the routine message. The transmission of SSAS alert is cancelled when a distress alert button is pressed. The distress alert message has the highest priority. The cancelled SSAS report is processed as Unsuccessful report and retransmitted via another LES. If a routine message is transmitted during the SSAS report, the routine message is not transmitted until the SSAS report is complete.

34

8. Q&A

Q14) What happen, when press the alert button after the ship moves in the other ocean region ? SSAS report is transmitted automatically. FELCOM 12 and 15 SSAS: When the SSAS alert button is pressed on the system not being synchronized, automatic channel scan function is activated to acquire NCS CC signal of the ocean region where the ship locates. However, it is recommended to change the ocean region in the SSAS report menu manually when the ship moves into another ocean region. FELCOM 16 SSAS: Automatic channel scan function is activated to acquire NCS CC signal of the ocean region where the ship locates if the system does not synchronize with the selected channel for 12 minutes. Q15) What happens when the SSAS alert button is pressed in Logout mode ? FELCOM 12 and 15: The system logs in 30 seconds later and transmits the report. FELCOM 16: The system is always in login mode because it automatically logs in about 1 minute after power-on. Q16) Why SSAS alert units are connected in daisy chain configuration ? SSAS alert units in daisy chain are checked easily for discontinuity. The jumper JP-1 in the last unit must be Closed.
No.1 IC-307 JP-1 Open DMC OUT H DMC IN H No.2 IC-307 JP-1 Open No.3 IC-307 JP-1 Short

+5V +5V Detect

** JP-1 in IC-307 is factory-set to OFF.

Q17) Why the number of the SSAS alert unit is limited to 3 ? The system is designed to drive the photocoupler in three IC-307s at the same time. If no more than three buttons is on at a time, the number is not limited. Q18) Why existing Inmarsat-C does not synchronize with the NCS Common Channel after installing FELCOM 16 SSAS system additionally ? (Both units are set to use the same NCS CC.) First local oscillator signal, F0 (NCS CC) 1.8 kHz interferes with another system. Separate the communication unit from the antenna unit. See page 10.

35

8. Q&A

Q19) What test should be performed after installation ? Carry out an SSAS alert button test and make an SSAS test call. When error message TROUBLE: SSAS UNIT Connection abnormality appears, check the connection between IC-307 and IC-315, and JP-1 setup in the last IC-307. Q20) Neither audible nor visible alarm is generated when the SSAS alert button is pressed. How can we recognize SSAS transmission ? FELCOM 12 and 15 SSAS: When the SSAS alert button is pressed, a period appears at the far left on the second row. Current status remains idling. FELCOM 16 SSAS No change is made when the SSAS alert button is pressed.
IDEL appears during SSAS report. SENDING appears during SSAS test transmission. A period appears during SSAS reportfunction is on. Change here is the same as the routine message.

8. Q&A

Q24) How multiple SSAS reports are transmitted ? For example, three SSAS reports 1, 2, and 3 are transmitted at intervals of 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and 30 minutes respectively via LES 203. Case-1) Normal transmission As illustrated below, the next transmission takes place if the first report is sent successfully and the delivery status is Complete.

Case-2) Unsuccessful transmission If first SSAS report 2 is sent unsuccessfully, the system sends the report again with another LES until the transmission becomes successful. The LES in LES Information list (F7, 6) is selected from top down. After the successful transmission with the LES selected from the list, the next transmission occurs with the LES in the SSAS report.

38

8. Q&A

Case-3) Not complete delivery status When delivery status is Not complete, the system sends the report at intervals of 30 minutes with another LES in the LES Information list. After the successful transmission with the LES selected from the list, the next transmission occurs with the LES in the SSAS report.

Case-4) Waiting for 30 min delivery status Assume that two SSAS reports 1 and 2 are transmitted at intervals of 10 minutes and 60 minutes respectively via LES 203. When the system does not receive delivery status message within 30 minutes, the system sends the report again with another LES in the LES Information list. After the successful transmission with the LES selected from the list, the next transmission occurs with the LES in the SSAS report.

8. Q&A

Q25) How the system works when ocean region changes ? FELCOM 16 SSAS: When the ship moves into another ocean region, the system loses synchronization with NCS CC. After 12 minutes, the system scans NCS CC signals for acquisition. The LES used in the previous ocean region is selected. For example, when LES ID of 203 is used in POR region, 303 is selected when the ship moves into IOR region. If no such LES exists, the system uses the LES on top row in the LES Information list. FELOCM 12 and 15 SSAS: When the ship moves into another ocean region, the system loses synchronization with NCS CC. Select an appropriate ocean region manually (F7-4). When the SSAS alert button is pressed with the system unsynchronized with NCS CC signal, the system scans NCS CC signals for acquisition. The LES used in the previous ocean region is selected. If no such LES exists, the system uses the LES on top row in the LES Information list (F7-6). Q26) What happens if E-mail address is wrong ? Even if E-mail address is wrong, the Delivery status is Complete. And no retransmission occurs. E-mail address is entered correctly. Q27) How classNK test the SSAS installation ? The surveyor verify that the SSAS complies with SOLAS Reg.11-2/6 and MSC Res.147(77) and the vessel has a copy of a valid certificate of conformity. The test is carried out by using the Checklist for survey of Ship Security Alert System on the following pages. Testing of the installation requires the attendance from the service supplier approved by classNK.

MSC/Circ.1072

ANNEX GUIDANCE ON PROVISION OF THE SHIP SECURITY ALERT SYSTEM 1 Regulation 6 of SOLAS chapter XI-2 requires ships to be provided with a ship security alert system. Section A/9 of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code requires ships to carry a ship security plan. Performance standards for ship security alert systems are given in resolution MSC.147(77). This Circular gives guidance on the design of ship security alert systems provided to comply with the SOLAS regulation. 2 The intent of the ship security alert system is to send a covert signal or message from a ship which will not be obvious to anyone on the ship who is not aware of the alert mechanism. It is of use therefore in circumstances where a ship wishes to inform a person ashore of a problem with a minimum number of the persons onboard aware of the action. The procedures for the security alert are agreed with the ships Administration as part of the ship security plan and ideally should be individual to the ship. It is not intended that the ship security alert procedures should be to an internationally agreed standard or conform to any particular format for all ships. 3 Possible methods of achieving the alert are as follows: .1 a system may employ proprietary tracking equipment provided by traffic service providers. The ship then carries a concealed equipment box working over a satellite system on its upper deck which transmits a position report at, typically, 6-hourly intervals. Interruption of power to the equipment or arming of the equipment by means of sensors or manual buttons causes the equipment to transmit a different format of position report. The tracking service providers monitor the transmission reports and inform the Company when the transmission format changes; a system may utilise modifications of GMDSS equipment.* Some GMDSS equipment is not very suitable for modification as it is optimised for all station calling and may involve manual setting of frequencies etc and provides confirmation on the ship of messages sent. In these types of systems the ship security alert contains identifiers to ensure that it is not possible to confuse it with a GMDSS distress, urgency or safety alert; and a system may utilise the exchange of messages containing key words between a ship and, typically, the Company. These messages may be by speech or data communications. Ship equipment which may be used includes cellular phones in coastal areas and satellite services away from coastal areas. It may be possible to use GMDSS VHF/MF/HF equipment in areas where there are coastal facilities for receiving addressed calls.

This list is not intended as exhaustive and is not intended to inhibit future developments.

Inmarsat is developing modifications to existing equipment that will allow for this service to be implemented.

MSC/Circ.1072 ANNEX Page 2

4 The ship security alert system requires two activation points, one of which should be on the bridge. These will typically be fixed or portable telephone handsets, fixed or portable keypads or fixed or portable buttons. 5 Measures should be incorporated in the activation points to avoid their inadvertent operation and the generation of false alerts.

DIRECTIVES FOR MARITIME RESCUE CO-ORDINATION CENTRES (MRCCs) 1 Definitions Act of violence: For the purposes of this circular, the phrases act of violence and acts of violence against ships encompass acts of piracy, acts of armed robbery against ships and any other security incident directed against a ship which does not fall into one of the preceding categories. For the purposes of this circular, the ship includes all persons on board. Piracy The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) (article 101) defines piracy as follows: Piracy consists of any of the following acts: (a) any illegal acts of violence or detention, or any act of depredation, committed for private ends by the crew or the passengers of a private ship or a private aircraft, and directed: (i) on the high seas, against another ship or aircraft, or against persons or property on board such ship or aircraft; (ii) against a ship, aircraft, persons or property in a place outside the jurisdiction of any State; (b) any act of voluntary participation in the operation of a ship or of an aircraft with knowledge of facts making it a pirate ship or aircraft; (c) any act inciting or of intentionally facilitating an act described in sub-paragraph (a) or (b). Security Forces Authority: For the purposes of this circular, and in accordance with the organization of and the decisions by the national Governments, the SFA (Security Forces Authority) is generally a national or regional command of a public agency such as the Navy, Coast Guard or Police in charge of providing the response to security incidents. Security incident. SOLAS 1974, as amended, chapter XI-2 defines a security incident as any suspicious act or circumstance threatening the security of a ship, including a mobile offshore drilling unit and a high speed craft, or of a port facility or of any ship/port interface or any ship to ship activity. Overt Security Alert: For the purposes of this circular, an overt security alert uses a communication channel or method which makes no attempt to deny knowledge of its activation and use, for example VHF broadcast. Covert Security Alert: For the purposes of this circular, a covert security alert uses a communication channel or method designed to deny knowledge of its activation to perpetrators of the acts of violence, for example a ship security alert system as detailed in the ISPS Code.

-32 General

MSC/Circ. 1073

2.1 While all Governments may grant their maritime rescue co-ordination centre(s) (MRCCs)1, in addition to those of search and rescue (SAR), powers in the application of national regulations and instructions, the response to acts of violence against ships is the only one of these extensions that forms part of the IMO regulations2. In this way, MRCCs are incorporated in the organization that Governments have to set up to deal with acts of violence against ships, which may occur suddenly and anywhere. 2.2 For these reasons, this circular has been drawn up especially for the MRCCs2, taking into consideration their own situations and normal activities. It should be considered in connection with guidance on maritime security given in chapter XI-2 of the SOLAS Convention, and the International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) Code, and guidance on piracy and armed robbery against ships given in MSC/Circ.622/Rev.1 for Governments, and MSC Circ.623/Rev.1 aimed at shipping companies, masters and crews. 2.3 MRCCs can expect to receive a ship security alert of an act of violence against a ship in a number of ways. This ship security alert can come directly from the ship or via an alternative source. These alternative sources include, but are not limited to, other ships, an adjacent MRCC, the national SFA, ship operators and flag State administrations. 2.4 The immediate MRCC response to an alert should be determined by whether the alert received by the MRCC is determined to be an overt alert or a covert alert. Determining whether the alert is overt or covert is a critical factor as the response for each is extremely different as shown below: .1 Overt Security Alert: For an overt alert communication with the ship or other ships in the vicinity of the ship under threat or attack need not be delayed or disguised, for example a Master of a ship may use an overt alarm to discourage an attack; Covert Security Alert: For a covert alert no attempt is to be made to contact the ship originating the alert and no communications are to be made with other ships in the vicinity of the ship under threat. A Master of a ship may use a covert alarm to deny those posing the threat or making an attack the knowledge that an alert has been made; and Unspecified Security Alert: A security alert is deemed to be unspecified when: .1 .2 it is unclear whether the alert is overt or covert; or the initial alert is overt and this is subsequently superseded by a declaration that it is a covert alert.

Detailed guidance for these three situations is provided in the operating instructions below.

Certain missions, which MRCCs have to carry out, in addition to search and rescue, are however set out in chapter 7 of the IAMSAR Manual, volume II

All the aspects laid down for the MRCC in this circular should be taken as valid for the joint rescue co-ordination centres (JRCC) and, if the national authority so decides, for the maritime rescue sub-centres (MRSC) and joint rescue sub-centres. I:\CIRC\MSC\1073.doc

2.5 Bilateral agreements between States may be reached for the application of co-operation procedures that might differ from those set out above. 3 Preparatory measures It is essential that MRCCs are in all respects prepared for situations involving acts of violence against ships. Preparatory measures taken by each MRCC must include actions to: .1 ensure that the MRCC is in possession of appropriate national instructions giving details of the Security Force Authority (SFA) responsible for the operational application of contingency plans (counter-measures) to deal with situations involving acts of violence against ships; establish fast and effective methods of communication for use between the MRCC and the SFA in question. These methods of communication should be tested on a regular basis; If appropriate and feasible, repeat points 3.1 and 3.2 above for each State whose coastal waters are included in the search and rescue region (SRR) of the MRCC; ensure the MRCC has clear written procedures and instructions on the actions to be taken by operations personnel when dealing with an act of violence against a ship; establish who is responsible for notifying other Administrations and Contracting Governments of the act of violence in accordance with SOLAS 1974, as amended, chapter XI-2, regulations 6 and 7; and train the MRCC personnel in: .1 the risks of an act of violence against a ship in the SRR covered by the MRCC in particular and the phenomenon of acts of violence against ships in general; the use of the MRCC procedures and instructions relating to acts of violence against ships; the communications regarding attacks or threats of attack that the MRCC might receive; and the reports to be sent in the event of an alert and all other actions to be taken.

Operating measures Action to be taken by MRCCs upon receipt of all types of security alerts: .1 If the position of the incident is within the SRR of the MRCC, the MRCC should immediately inform the appropriate SFA, using the method of communications set out in 3.2. In addition, if the position is close to the boundaries of the SRR, the MRCC should also inform the appropriate neighbouring MRCC; and

MSC/Circ. 1073

.2

If the position of the incident is outside the SRR of the MRCC, the MRCC should relay the alert to the appropriate MRCC using the normal methods of communication among MRCCs for search and rescue operations or other predetermined discreet inter-MRCC communication channels as appropriate.

4.2

Operating measures for OVERT security alerts In the event of receiving an overt security alert, in addition to the actions detailed in paragraph 4.1 above MRCCs should: .1 .2 .3 .4 .5 maintain contact with the SFA and other parties as detailed in 4.1above; contact the ship to determine if the security alert is real or false and to ascertain the nature of the current situation; if no response is received, assume that the act of violence is ongoing and advise the SFA accordingly; determine the most effective way of issuing a security alert warning for the other ships in the vicinity using appropriate systems and procedures2 and place SAR resources on standby if appropriate. Prior to authorizing their dispatch by the MRCC, the SFA should determine the risk to the SAR assets.

4.3

Operating measures for COVERT security alerts In the event of receiving a covert security alert, in addition to the actions detailed in paragraph 4.1 above, MRCCs should: .1 .2 maintain contact with the SFA and other parties as detailed in 4.1 above; under no circumstances should an MRCC receiving a covert security alert acknowledge receipt of the information received. In addition the MRCC must not send any communication or advice to the Master, other persons on board, or ships in the vicinity of the incidents related to that incident unless directed by the SFA; place SAR resources on standby if appropriate. Prior to authorizing their dispatch by the MRCC, the SFA should determine the risk to the SAR assets; and assist the SFA by providing operational information as requested by the SFA.

.3 .4 4.4

Operating measures for UNSPECIFIED security alerts Unspecified alerts should be treated as covert in accordance with paragraph 4.3 above.

Additional Actions

5.1 The MRCC should endeavour to keep the ships Administration informed of the acts of violence committed against this ship and of their consequences.

REVISED RECOMMENDATION ON PERFORMANCE STANDARDS FOR A SHIP SECURITY ALERT SYSTEM 1 Introduction

1.1 The ship security alert system is provided to a ship for the purpose of transmitting a security alert to the shore to indicate to a competent authority that the security of the ship is under threat or has been compromised. It comprises a minimum of two activation points, one of which is on the navigation bridge. These initiate the transmission of a ship security alert. The system is intended to allow a covert activation to be made which alerts the competent authority ashore and does not raise an alarm on board ship nor alert other ships. 1.2 As required by its Administration, the competent authority receiving the alert notifies the authority responsible for maritime security within its Administration, the coastal State(s) in whose vicinity the ship is presently operating, or other Contracting Governments. 1.3 The procedures for the use of the ship security alert system and the location of the activation points are given in the ship security plan agreed by the Administration. 1.4 The ship security alert system may utilise the radio installation provided for compliance with chapter IV of the SOLAS Convention, other radio systems provided for general communications or dedicated radio systems.
2 General

2.1 In addition to complying with the general requirements set out in resolution A.694(17)1, the ship security alert system should comply with the following performance standards. 2.2 The radio system used for the ship security alert systems should comply with relevant international standards.
3 Power supply

3.1 Where the ship security alert system is powered from the ships main source of electrical power, it should, in addition, be possible to operate the system from an alternative source of power.
4 Activation points

4.1 Activation points should be capable of being used on the navigation bridge and in other locations. They should be protected against inadvertent operation. It should not be necessary for the user to remove seals or to break any lid or cover in order to operate any control.

Publication IEC60945.

I:\MSC\77\26-A1.DOC

MSC 77/26/Add.1 ANNEX 7 Page 3


5 Operation

5.1 The activation points should operate a radio system such that transmission of the security alert does not require any adjustment of the radio system, i.e. tuning of channels, setting of modes or menu options. Operation of the activation point should not cause any alarm or indication to be raised on the ship.
5.2 The operation of the ship security alert system should not impair the functionality of the GMDSS installation.

Transmission of security alerts

6.1 In all cases, transmission initiated by security alert system activation points should include a unique code/identifier indicating that the alert has not been generated in accordance with GMDSS distress procedures. The transmission should include the ship identity and current position associated with a date and time. The transmission should be addressed to a shore station and should not be addressed to ship stations. 6.2 The ship security alert system, when activated, should continue the ship security alert until deactivated and/or reset.
7 Testing

7.1

The ship security alert system should be capable of being tested. ***
