Inmarsat is set to launch a new voice and data satellite service designed specifically for the maritime leisure and fishing community called Fleet One, and has named Addvalue Technologies and Cobham SATCOM as manufacturing partners for the service.

Addvalue and Cobham will each manufacture an L-band terminal for Fleet One, which is due to enter commercial service during the second quarter of 2014.

"Addvalue and Cobham are long-standing, trusted partners of Inmarsat and today’s appointment represents an expansion of the partnership between our respective companies," said Frank Coles, president, Inmarsat Maritime.

"Both companies have a proven history of manufacturing highly reliable terminals, supporting a range of Inmarsat services and we are pleased to have them join us as we prepare to unveil Fleet One in Q2."

The new service is aimed at leisure mariners, day boaters and sport and coastal fisherman.
