Description :

The JRC JUE-85 Inmarsat system is comprised of a small Enternally Mounted Equipment(EME), an Internally Mounted Equipment(IME) with distress button, together with a Data Terminal Equipment(DTE) and an AC/DC Power Supply Unit. As a GMDSS equipment, JRC also includes a printer as standard,offering a total solution to the shipping industry.


The JUE-85 is a highly reliable mobile satellite message communication system, having the ability to handle commercial, operational and personal messages just as easily as distress and safety communications.

All-in-one solution
The JUE-85 Inmarsat C model comes standard with LRIT, an IMO required global monitoring system of the ship’s movement. The purpose of LRIT is to increase maritime domain awareness and to improve maritime security. If you have the previous model JUE-75C Inmarsat C onboard and wish to upgrade to LRIT, please check here your serial number for upgrade possibilities.

About the Inmarsat C system
JRC JUE-85 Inmarsat C is a digital satellite communication system whereby anything that can be encoded into digital format, whether text, numeric data from instruments or other information in digital format can be sent and received over the system. A simple user interface allows sending and receiving messages.

Store and forward messages
The Inmarsat C system is known as a store-and-forward messaging system. When sending a ship-to-shore message, it is edited on the terminal and then transmitted in a series of data packets to an Inmarsat C land earth station (LES). The LES acts as an interface (or gateway) between the satellite and the telecommunications network on land. The LES stores the data packets, assembles them into a single message and forwards it (hence the term store-and-forwarding) over the telecommunication network to its addressed destination.

JRC’s mobile Inmarsat C terminal incorporates various self-diagnostic programs to facilitate maintenance and troubleshooting, reporting any possible problems it might suffer. The results are displayed on the data terminal. These functions will allow for easy maintenance and more reliability. In addition, automatic testing for performance verification and commissioning via the satellite channel is also available.

Data reporting and polling
JUE-85 Inmarsat C is programmed to automatically respond to a polling request from shore-based customers, as they may need to acquire information from vessels. The polling command ‘instructs’ a terminal or group of terminals to send a variety of onboard data immediately.

Switching power
If the vessel’s main power supply (AC source) fails, the JUE-85 will automatically switch to the emergency DC source. This is one of the necessary requirements to meet the Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS) regulations.

SSAS add-on kit
The Ship Security Alerting System (SSAS) is a system that contributes to the IMO’s efforts to strengthen maritime security and suppress acts of terrorism and piracy against shipping. In case of attempted piracy or terrorism, the vessel’s SSAS function can be activated, and appropriate law-enforcement or military forces can be alerted.

Distress alert
Your vessels ID, date/time and the present position, course and speed is acquired manually or automatically from an integrated GNSS receiver, such as GPS, or the vessel’s navigational interface, allowing you to send a distress alert simply by pressing and holding the dedicated built-in distress button.

Enhanced Group Calling (EGC)
JRC total Inmarsat C solution incorporates a special capability known as Enhanced Group Calling (EGC), which enables authorized information providers to broadcast international safety and commercial service messages to selected groups of ships. EGC is available as standard on the JUE-85 terminal.

Two EGC services are available:

  • The EGC SafetyNET: is the international safety service, which broadcasts maritime safety information, such as meteorological and hydrographic messages to all ships in certain geographical areas.
  • EGC FleetNET: is the international commercial service, it is a subscription service, and allows shipping companies or governments to broadcast messages to selected groups of vessels.

Flexible installation
The JUE-85 Inmarsat C system has the same cable management philosophy resembling all other Inmarsat products that JRC is offering, allowing for an easy installation as only a single coax cable is used between antenna and terminal. Both are very compact and can be easily installed on any size and type of vessel.

JCmail, a freeware application developed by JRC, enables you to transmit and receive email messages very easily on the JUE-85 satellite terminal. In addition, this program allows you to receive EGC messages.
