Maritime Satellite Communications

Cobham SATCOM reports that it has passed the milestone of delivering its 50,000th SAILOR FleetBroadband terminal, ten years after the system was launched in parallel with Inmarsat’s L-band maritime satcom service in 2007.
Singapore based ship management company Parakou has agreed a deal to implement Satcom Global’s Aura VSAT system across its fleet of tankers, with the Ku-band service now live on eight vessels following an eight week rapid installation programme in Asia and the USA.
Speedcast has signed an agreement with government satellite connectivity provider COMSAT to establish a common global service offering of Ku-band VSAT services for both the government and maritime markets.
Inmarsat is to supply five Fleet One units to a pilot initiative looking to change the way ships connecting island communities in the Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu communicate, part of an IMO-endorsed capacity building programme based on co-operation between the International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO) and the Government of Vanuatu.
Inmarsat has confirmed the successful launch of the fourth satellite in its Global Xpress (GX) constellation, which will be used to augment the existing global three-satellite communications network already in operation.
KVH has announced that it has begun the roll-out of its mini-VSAT system on offshore vessels operated by Smit Lamnalco, following an agreement finalised earlier this year.
German maritime GSM data provider bobz GmbH has announced the launch of its new shipznet ultra packages, offering users a choice between Global, Midsize or Europe packages from 20 GB per month.
Marlink has extended its VSAT network with the addition of new Ku-band capacity covering the Northeast Passage region, which connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans North of Russia.
Kongsberg has agreed a partnership deal with agricultural solutions company YARA to build what the companies say will be the world’s first autonomous zero emissions ship, a 100 per cent electric container feeder vessel.
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), the world’s largest shipbuilder, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a partnership in the smart ship sector with the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri).
