IEC Telecom and Lars Thrane enter satcoms partnership

IEC Telecom has extended its portfolio through a new partnership with specialist satcoms manufacturer Lars Thrane.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} IEC Telecom is now an official distributor of the LT-3100 Iridium satellite phone in Norway. Specially designed for the professional market and built to withstand rough sea environments, the LT-3100 satellite communications system is a maritime xed satellite phone that is ideal for fishing and sailing vessels.

Requiring no yearly maintenance thanks to a built-in webserver, the LT-3100 system provides voice, data, SMS, vessel tracking, and more services from Iridium at competitive airtime charges. The LT-3100 features a high-performance GNSS/GPS receiver and is particularly suitable for deep sea, fishing and workboats.

“We are heavily committed to the Scandinavian market and pleased to partner with Lars Thrane as distributors in Norway. We hope to have a long and fruitful journey together,” said Alf Stian Mauritz, vice president – business development, IEC Telecom Group.

“It is a small and neat product which is ideal for installation on smaller vessels,” explained Mr Mauritz. “We are already fitting it to fishing and sailing vessels and are excited to be officially unveiling it at BlueFish as part of our comprehensive communications portfolio.”

IEC Telecom will unveil its new product range during the shipping industry event BlueFish in Ålesund, Norway from September 3 - 5 2019. {/mprestriction}

  • LR and the National Physical Laboratory partner on marine autonomy assurance

    Lloyd's Register (LR) and the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have teamed up to collaborate on marine autonomy projects to ensure that appropriate levels of service and competence can be achieved within the maritime industry.

    As part of the framework agreement, the two organisations will collectively establish and enhance the current body of knowledge for marine autonomy. This combination of skills, expertise and experience will be built on to bring clarity to the requirements for the assurance of autonomy and assist stakeholders in realising the potential of these systems in the market.

    This will allow standards to be set and consistently applied and will therefore bring surety to risk management and certification for autonomous and unmanned systems and vessels.

    By partnering with NPL, LR will enhance the delivery of its services and assurance in marine autonomy and gain access to a wide range of knowledge and expertise developed in other aligned domains.

    LR and NPL are currently working together to deliver a scope of services to the THEMIS Project, to demonstrate the feasibility for the world’s largest ocean-going autonomous vessel, which is part funded by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore’s (MPA) Maritime Innovation and Technology (MINT) fund.

    NPL’s head of Digital, Neil Stansfield, said: “The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is excited by the opportunities presented in this collaboration with Lloyd’s Register, where the two organisations complementary capabilities are well suited to addressing the challenge of assuring marine autonomous systems. This work represents an important part of the UK’s national programme to deliver confidence in the intelligent and effective use of data, which is being conducted with a range of partners across sectors and with a specific focus on autonomous systems. NPL is applying a combination of measurement skills, expertise and experience, in areas as diverse as sensor characterisation, data quality and AI validation, to support partners in the development of new tests, standards and regulations for the safety of autonomous systems. This collaboration with Lloyd’s Register will help ensure the UK maintains its global leadership in the marine services Sector, where the autonomous shipping sector is expected to represent a global $52bn market opportunity by 2050.”

    Tim Kent, LR technical director for Marine and Offshore said: “This collaboration with the NPL will allow LR to improve our own processes, knowledge and competency to better support our clients with marine autonomy projects. We are delighted to be partnering with NPL given its domain knowledge on autonomy from the connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) domains.”
