The United States Agency for International Development’s Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Oceans) has announced a new partnership with Inmarsat to help commercial fishing crews promote sustainable fishing in Southeast Asia, through the use of satellite systems to improve catch documentation and traceability (CDT).
Inmarsat is to supply five Fleet One units to a pilot initiative looking to change the way ships connecting island communities in the Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu communicate, part of an IMO-endorsed capacity building programme based on co-operation between the International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO) and the Government of Vanuatu.
Inmarsat has launched Fleet One Global, an extension of its existing Fleet One service designed to offer basic voice and data connectivity to low-end users in the maritime market.
California-based startup LinkWav is offering tailored FleetBroadband airtime plans that it claims could save customers up to 50 per cent on Inmarsat annual plans.
Inmarsat has announced that it has appointed SpeedCast as a Distribution Partner (DP) for its maritime offering Fleet Broadband, as well as Fleet One, its voice and data service for the leisure and fishing markets.
Inmarsat, in partnership with Beijing Marine Communication and Navigation Co. (MCN Beijing), has released a communications application designed specifically for Chinese coastal fishing vessels.
