Introducing A-PASS® 6 -
Not Just for the Gangway Anymore!
Re-engineered from the ground floor up, the new A-PASS 6
system is the next generation of ship management for marine safety and security.
While providing many new and improved features over the original A-PASS Classic,
many new safety and security options are now available. For example, the new Visitor
Registration module allows embarkation operations to be streamlined by capturing
visitor photos in the terminal or preprinting visitor cards. With the new Corporate
Badging Module, badges can be generated shore side and managed centrally to ensure
personnel have proper fleet-wide clearance and preauthorization.

Based on Microsoft .NET technology, the new A-PASS 6 uses the latest in software
architecture, web technology, and industry standard protocols. Utilizing SOA (Service-Oriented
Architecture) through Web Services, the system ensures seamless integration and
interoperability with other shipboard systems. Employing the latest identity management
technology, the product now supports a wide variety of new device options including
DL, Passport, and Biometric to automate passenger check-in and provide
positive passenger identification.
“My wife and I just returned from a cruise on the Carnival Inspiration with four of our teenage granddaughters.
Had a wonderful time. And for me, it was especially rewarding to see the A-Pass system in use. It was flawless and convenient.
I couldn't help pointing it out to our granddaughters and anyone else who was interested. No matter where we go from here it is
very satisfying to know that you and your staff have made cruising on the open seas much safer and easier”.
