Becker Marine and ClearPoint in partnership agreement

  • Friday, 25 January 2008 | News

Becker Marine Systems Communication and ClearPoint Weather, a provider of global weather information services, have agreed to establish a strategic partnership, whereby Becker will integrate the ClearPoint High Definition Weather Service into its umc.global network communications service.

This new, fully integrated service will provide up-to-date and detailed weather information for maritime vessels around the world.

The integration of ClearPoint High Definition Weather will be offered as a managed service to be marketed as 'umc.global network weather'. The new service will help customers avoid the task of searching for and obtaining weather data from a wide variety of specialist weather services via Navtex, radio, telephone or fax.

The umc.global network weather system shows the prevailing conditions at the precise location of the ship, tracking the vessel and automatically sending alerts for changing positions. The software also incorporates predictive technology which allows navigators to anticipate changes in weather conditions up to five days in advance.

The weather service will be carried by the umc.global network via wireless, WiMax, 2GSM, 3GSM or any satellite service, and delivered directly to the ship's bridge.
