Satellite operators and satellite providers in the fight for the “faithful” customer

NSR (Nothern Sky Research) – a global leader in satellite services market research – wonders if the “faithful” satellite client for the maritime industry is good enough.

Fact: Satellite operators are looking for any profitability opportunities within value chains.

One of the ways to increase the profitability of satellite services is to create a customer base with a high percentage of so-called “faithful” customers, which significantly reduces the operator’s costs for their constant switching. In markets such as DTH (Direct To the Home, home satellite TV), entire geographic areas of “loyal” customers can be held by a single video signal and the high cost of rebuilding household antennas. In the mobile services sector, the capacity of such an “ecosystem” is formed by a satellite operator so that users move within its own satellite fleet. A classic example of creating an “ecosystem” for Continue reading

Swivel Antenna

Probably many people know that television satellites are in a geostationary orbit, which is a circular orbit located above the Earth’s equator (0 latitude), on which, an artificial satellite rotates around the planet with an angular velocity equal to the angular velocity of the Earth’s rotation around its axis, and constantly dwells on the same point on the earth’s surface. The satellites are located on the so-called polar arc (photo 1) at an altitude of approximately 36,900 km above sea level, the satellite’s altitude is not chosen randomly, but based on calculations of centrifugal force so that the satellite does not fall to the ground and does not fly into open space. So, a rotary antenna is a motorized antenna, designed in such a way that when moving it describes exactly the same arc as the one on which the satellites in space are located. Due to the Earth’s gravitational force and the centrifugal force that counteracts it, the satellites are stationary relative to the earth’s surface, so it’s enough to install a device (motor) to move the antenna along the given satellite Continue reading

Iridium Certus based on Iridium NEXT for autonomous vessels

Satellite operator Iridium announced the signing of a Protocol of Intent with one of the pioneers of smart shipping (intelligent ship transport) Rolls-Royce Marine (RRM) in support of their development program for the so-called autonomous vessels.

As part of this arrangement, Iridium and RRM will work together to explore the possibility of including the next-generation Iridium Certus L-band satellite broadband service in the RRM suite of Ship Intelligence solutions. Thus, the RRM will have a stable and reliable broadband connection, which can serve as the possibility of independent communications or backup data with high bandwidth, expanding Continue reading
