FleetBroadband – New Inmarsat Link

Over the past 15 years, means of satellite Internet access have been rapidly developing on the high seas, beyond the reach of coastal communication networks.
For yachts and small vessels, dial-up became the first available – connection via satellite phones Globalstar, Inmarsat Mini-M, Iridium, Thuraya.

The cost of communication was high, the speed was measured not in megabytes, but in kilobits per second. Later VSAT compact (with a diameter of half a meter) antennas appeared, working with various Ku-band satellites; channel capacity reached 1 Mb / s, with the ability to transfer large volumes. Apart from a slight signal delay due to the large distance from the terminal to the satellite, Internet browsing Continue reading

Iridium Certus Launches Worldwide

The world’s first global broadband service. Mobile offices, autonomous vehicles and ships can now use this state-of-the-art communications platform.
Satellite operator Iridium announced on January 16, 2019 the commercial launch of its broadband service, Iridium Certus, the first new feature offered by the Iridium NEXT satellite program worth $ 3 billion. Iridium Certus is a unique platform for developing specialized applications, and it is the only truly global broadband service in the world offering Internet access on the move, as well as high-quality voice communications.

The service provides the functionality of mobile offices for the so-called deployed groups and two-way Continue reading

KVH introduced new photon gyroscopes

KVH’s new photonic gyroscopes integrated into high-precision inertial measurement units (IMUs) are designed for the growing driverless autonomous vehicle market and offer significant performance and cost advantages.
KVH KVH Industries, Inc. in Middletown on January 3, 2019, announced that photon chip technology was integrated into high-precision fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG) designed and manufactured by KVH, and therefore, deliveries of working prototypes of KVH Photonic Gyro IMU to leading automotive customers were launched last December. Developed by KVH engineers working in Tinley Park, Illinois and Middletown, Rhode Island, photon chip technology is designed to ensure centimeter-level localization accuracy, which, as instructed by automotive vehicle developers, is a prerequisite for creating unmanned vehicles.

“This is a revolutionary technology that we expect will transform our fiber-optic gyroscopes and inertial systems, and I am proud of the tremendous efforts of our incredible team of engineers,” said Martin Keats van Heiningen, CEO of KVH. “Our FOG and FOG-based high-precision IMU measuring units provide a higher Continue reading
