Intellian Technologies and Inmarsat Maritime have today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development of a GMDSS safety terminal, designed for operation over Inmarsat’s ELERA L-band network.
Our next-generation terminal that will vastly improve the safety of lives at sea for the 1.9 million seafarers and over 20 million passengers annually protected by the International Maritime Organization’s policies.
… said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian Technologies
The terminal also features a Distress Chat function among its enhanced capabilities. This function automatically alerts the nearest Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) in case of an emergency on board. Furthermore, it notifies nearby vessels, creating a network of support during critical situations.
This development represents a significant milestone in enhancing the safety of seafarers & passengers worldwide, and it underscores Inmarsat’s commitment to providing innovative and reliable solutions for the maritime industry and protecting lives at sea.
