HF E-Mail System and Ships Server for longrange radio e-mail traffic on board ships, in embassies, refugee-camps, etc.
The multifunctional e-mail system ELSE is a mix of server and router and represents our high-end product for landmobile and maritime applications.
It is a product of German engineering, developed and manufactured in German locations, therefore Made in Germany!
The ELSE contains a HF modem for Pac-III and a computer, which is responsible for the complete management of the radio station and which is performing the radio traffic automatically without any interaction of an operator.
In particular the ELSE is checking the availability of the HF channels, the signal quality and will select the one of best quality, which is ready for traffic. Therefore the radios are remote controlled by the "ELSE".
The connection will be automatically established and after data-transfer a disconnect will take place.
In further the ELSE will select a suitable communication device (MF/HF, Sat, GSM) accordingly to the
configured criteria, especially in regard of size of the e-mails and availability of the prevailing
Aside of the e-mail exchange, relevant weather bulletins, NAVTEX messages and other nautical information
will be downloaded automatically.
For fixed, land-based applications (e.g. embassies, refugee-camps) we offer a similar product under the
name Prometheus, which can be furthermore integrated into a land-line connected system (e.g. DSL)
Prometheus is watchkeeping the external land-line, whereas a disruption will cause the system to transmit
via a radio device (HF/MF, Sat, GSM)
ELSE and Prometheus are working on HF/MF in interaction with the GLN, respectively via Sat-Com with
Inmarsat or Iridium.
Adaptions or modifications for own, existing radio networks are available upon request.
The Ships Servers' software is saved on a program board. That is why the server has neither mechanical drives nor any other components. Therefore it can cope with the harsh working conditions on board of maritime vessels, platforms, measuring stations or in vechicles. It can be modified according to special customer requirements if necessary.
The Else offers a crisis-proof and secured communication by E-Mail also during wartimes or time periods of crisis, if satellite-based systems were destoyed by enemy actions. Therefore the Else is listed as mandatory equipment on vessels of the Swiss merchant fleet accordingly to national laws and regulations.
