Telespazio and Grimaldi sign satcom agreement

Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo and Thales, has signed two contracts worth EUR 5 million with the Grimaldi Group for the upgrade of the Neapolitan Shipping Group’s satellite communications capacity.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The first agreement covers the management of on-board communications for RoRo multi-purpose and pure car and truck carriers (PCTC) operating between Northern Europe, North and South America, West Africa, and the Mediterranean.

The second agreement covers renovating basic (voice and data) satellite telecommunication services for crew and passengers on mixed cargo/passenger ships for vessels operating in the Mediterranean.

Telespazio will design and supply the on-board systems for satellite communications and related broadband services, including backup, on a multi-regional scale. These services will be provided via Telespazio’s global coverage platform operated by the Fucino Space Centre (L’Aquila).{/mprestriction}
