Thuraya has launched a new Thuraya Tracking and Monitoring (T2M) service alongside a T2M-DUAL terminal for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and remote asset tracking and monitoring.
Satellite AIS data provider exactEarth, working in the United Kingdom with the Satellite Applications Catapult, Pole Star Space Applications, TeamSurv and OceanWise, has completed the demonstration of a new global maritime machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) platform that can upload sensor data from vessels in real-time.
Globalstar has launched a new M2M/IoT satellite device, the SmartOne Solar, which can be used to provide remote monitoring and tracking over the Globalstar satellite network for movable assets like containers, powered by solar-rechargeable batteries.
Thuraya reports that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with space start-up ELSE, a Swiss company developing a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation of nanosatellites, to create a strategic alliance between the two organisations and grow Thuraya’s future capabilities in the M2M and IoT sectors.
Rock Seven has launched a new two-way Machine-to-Machine (M2M) satellite communications system with integrated antenna for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, using the Iridium network.
Maritime technology companies ORBCOMM, Pole Star and Weatherdock have jointly developed Hali, a system which combines terrestrial AIS, satellite AIS, and satellite M2M technology into a single package for vessel tracking.
Rock Seven has launched a new fixed cost monthly GSM subscription for users of its dual-mode vessel tracking system, RockFLEET, which also uses Iridium’s satellite network to send data when out of GSM coverage.
Thuraya has joined the LoRa Alliance, an organisation aiming to standardise Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) across the world for use in Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is making an Invitation to Tender for its ARTES Advanced Technology project, which aims to drive prototyping of low data rate satellite communications concepts that would be suitable for M2M and IoT applications.
The Internet of Things is finally being put to practical use in the maritime industry, with Globalstar announcing that its STX3 chipset is to form the basis for the first Internet of Things (IoT) system for monitoring craft beer while it is shipped around the world.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
