Transas has signed a partnership agreement with Satcom Global to add integrated connectivity to THESIS, its unified platform for digital operations on ships and in shore-based offices, adding to another partnership deal agreed with JRC at the end of February.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The agreement will integrate Satcom Global’s Aura VSAT network with Transas’ navigation and voyage optimisation systems, allowing them to connect with shore-based fleet operations centres.

The integrated bundle will marry Satcom Global’s connectivity with Transas’ e-Navigation services, including electronic charts, associated e-Navigation tools, weather services and remote support.

“Joining the dots of the existing fragmented patchwork of standalone e-Navigation and fleet optimisation tools is the primary goal of the THESIS concept,” said Transas CEO, Frank Coles.

“This collaboration will close the circle, linking the dots between ship, fleet operations centres and ship traffic control centres. It adds further value to the platform of solutions Transas and its partners are bringing to the maritime industry. Furthermore, it will provide a solid platform to support the future evolution of fleet operation services as they become available.”

Satcom Global will provide access to its global Ku-band network, providing Transas with a pathway into high-throughput broadband capacity for data exchange via its onboard equipment, simplifying processes such as ECDIS updating.

“A strategic partnership with Transas marks the start of an exciting period for Satcom Global and is indicative of the direction in which the maritime industry is moving. Transas is committed to delivering innovation through its ecosystem, THESIS, and connectivity plays an indispensable role in its continued development,” said Satcom Global CEO, Ian Robinson

“This provides vessel owners both cost savings and efficiency gains as we move towards a more connected and safer ship. The collaboration is also an opportunity for us to enhance our maritime value added services offering, with access to Transas’ extensive portfolio, reaffirming our commitment to delivering world class solutions to our global customer base.”{/mprestriction}
