Inmarsat will supply advanced wireless communications to marine vessels in 2022, as required by the SOLAS Convention, says a press release on their website.
Safety of Operations
Inmarsat Fleet Xpress high-speed broadband satellite service will allow OceanGate Expeditions’ crew to interact with scientific and operational resources anywhere in the world and communicate key results while improving overall safety.
Establishment of Inmarsat
In 1979 Inmarsat was established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to provide modern wireless communications to maritime vessels and served as a crucial advancement in maritime safety.
Operate Safely And Efficiently
“The Marconi radio used on the Titanic had a range of only a few hundred nautical miles. Today, the satellite service provided by Inmarsat gives us instant, reliable, global reach. Inmarsat’s services are crucial to our ability to operate safely and efficiently,” said Stockton Rush, President of OceanGate Expeditions.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Inmarsat for the second year of our multidisciplinary study of the Titanic, its archaeology, and its marine ecosystem. Inmarsat satellite connectivity will support our extended team’s efforts to understand what the next 110 years hold for the Titanic.”
Advanced satellite services
“It is with great pride that Inmarsat continues to support the important work that OceanGate Expeditions and its team of experts, scientists, maritime archaeologists, and marine biologists are doing to document the wreck of the Titanic for future generations,” says Eric Griffin, Vice President, Offshore Energy & Fish, Inmarsat Maritime.
“Our advanced satellite services save lives and provide connectivity to vessels working in remote and challenging maritime locations around the globe. We’re here to keep mariners safe. Inmarsat was created to develop a satellite communications network for protecting lives at sea and we are deeply proud of our safety heritage.”
