According to One Sea’s press release, three major industry players joined One Sea boosting the future of autonomous ship technology in the maritime sector. Specifically, Inmarsat and MIT (Monohakobi Technology Institute) joined One Sea as full members, whereas RINA, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to become an associate member.
In the latest issue of Phish and Ships in May, Be Cyber Aware At Sea, focused on cyber crime that seems to be getting more dangerous and is now becoming a highly automated business that attacks the most vulnerable part of an organisation. Although the shipping industry is being more aware of cyber attacks, it seems to be slower in coping with it.
While speaking at the first SAFETY4SEA Conference in London, Dana Jongens, Safety Services Manager, Inmarsat Maritime focused on smart ships, the future of the maritime industry and the adoption of IoT that will enable the transfer of data from ship to shore.
The British satellite communications company Inmarsat has agreed to a $3.4bn (£2.6bn) takeover by a group led by the private equity firms Apax and Warburg Pincus, becoming the latest UK technology business to be sold to investment companies.
Inmarsat has collaborated with the start-up programmes, Rainmaking Trade and Transport Impact and Bluetech Accelerator, to support news businesses focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data innovation in the maritime, ports and logistics supply chain.
Inmarsat and SRH Marine SAIT signed a contract on February 2019, that formalises arrangements for real-time Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) updating to be accomplished ‘ship-to-shore’ by using an application over FleetBroadband for the first time.
Inmarsat, a global leader in mobile satellite communications, announced a partnership with Microsoft that will enhance supply chain visibility and allow customers in the transportation and logistics sectors to transfer Industrial IoT (IIOT) data to the cloud.
Inmarsat starts a collaboration with Rainmaking’s Trade and Transport Impact (T&TI) and Bluetech Accelerator, to create initiatives that directly support start-ups focused on IoT and big data innovation in the maritime, ports and logistics supply chain.
The emerging risk associated with cyber threat requires not only better training for seafarers, but also spreading awareness of best cyber security practices, argued Peter Broadhurst, Senior VP of Safety and Security, Inmarsat Maritime, adding that there is still ‘a long way to go’ when it comes to effective cyber protection.
SAFETY4SEA is pleased to announce that Mr. Peter Broadhurst, Inmarsat has received the 2019 SMART4SEA Personality Award, sponsored by Tototheo Maritime, at a prestigious award ceremony which successfully concluded on January the 29th at Yacht Club of Greece in Athens, the evening ahead of the 2019 SMART4SEA Conference.
