Aker BioMarine vessel installs FX

Aker BioMarine’s Antarctic krill harvester fleet support ship, La Manche, has installed Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress service following a deal with Marlink.

Cyber security firm IOActive has released a report outlining a potential vulnerability it says it discovered in Inmarsat’s AmosConnect platform that would provide a backdoor into the shipboard system – however, Inmarsat has responded to note that the software version in question was already retired prior to IOActive’s test, and that it has also previously issued a patch to close the vulnerability.

Rolls-Royce and Inmarsat have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) providing an option to make the Rolls-Royce Energy Management system available via Inmarsat Maritime’s Fleet Xpress network.
