Success in Sea Trials Results in DFO Certification for Joubeh’s Vessel Monitoring System for use in telemetry applications in harsh and remote environments
JouBeh Technologies have met the requirements of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s (DFO) Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) following successful sea trials of DFO’s Hardware Approval Process.

iTrac makes use of combining Iridium’s 9601 short-burst data (SBD) transceiver and the Global Positioning System (GPS). iTrac was conceived and designed by MetOcean Data Systems, a supplier of remote, harsh environment telemetry systems. iTrac provides managers, mariners and vessel operators with the latest in cost-effective satellite tracking and locating technologies packaged for the toughest ocean environmental conditions. MetOcean will be responsible for manufacturing iTrac as well as providing life cycle engineering support and continued product R&D.

JouBeh is a Value-Added Reseller (VAR) for Iridium Communications. JouBeh is focused on delivering data modem technology solutions and data services to the world’s environmental and operational telematics markets. The Iridium satellite constellation and its associated data services have had enormous success, particularly within the maritime community and are aiding sea-goers around the world with reliable, truly global, real-time communication links.

Paul Hill, JouBeh’s Sales Manager stated that, “By working with Iridium and directly with the fishing community, we are able to offer a solution that improves significantly upon previous VMS satellite technologies. iTrac offers the most reliable and robust VMS packaging available. JouBeh is able to directly control the activation and data management aspect of iTrac, therefore enhancing service times to end users. We also feel that iTrac and the Iridium service will aid the fishing community in improving safety of lives at sea, especially in our treacherous North Atlantic waters. By working with MetOcean, JouBeh was able to gain access to over thirty years of electronics and mechanical design and manufacturing expertise. It’s a fantastic combination of technologies, competencies and service in making a very tough job out there a little easier.”

Greg Ewert, Iridium’s executive vice president of global distribution channels, said, “Iridium offers an ideal platform for VMS with its combination of global coverage and reliable two-way data connections. Iridium is the only mobile satellite service company that provides coverage over the entire globe, including the important Arctic-area fisheries beyond the reach of other satellite systems.”
