Mr. Alberto Perez, Inmarsat Maritime, notes that the maritime industry has realized the benefits of digitalization. Among many, digital technologies offer transparency which is very important; In this regard, Mr. Perez cites the example of Inmarsat’s Fleet Data which can virtually connect to any sensor, giving full transparency on bills as connectivity costs are included in the service.
SAFETY4SEA is pleased to announce that Inmarsat has received the 2018 SAFETY4SEA Technology Award at a prestigious award ceremony which successfully concluded on October the 2nd at Yacht Club of Greece in Athens, the evening ahead of the SAFETY4SEA Conference.
Inmarsat announced the launch of a new service for Maritime Safety Information Providers, marking a key stage in upgrading the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, which helps to save thousands of lives at sea each year.
An IMO Sub Committee decided to greenlight consideration of both Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband and Fleet One for formal approval. To date, Inmarsat is the only company which has received approval from the International Maritime Organization to provide the GMDSS data and messaging communications on which mariners rely in the last resort.
The review and modernization of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety system (GMDSS) continues this week at the fourth session of the Sub-Committee on Navigation, Communication, Search and Rescue (6-10 March).
