GEO, MEO, LEO: New mega constellations and what it means for the industry
Traditionally most maritime satellite communication has been handled through satellites in geostationary orbits. This is changing with the introduction of new constellations in the Low & Middle Earth Orbits promising higher bandwidths and lower latency.
We will go through what each Orbit has to offer, the challenges they present and how Cobham SATCOM as an antenna manufacturer, see the future.
Modernizing GMDSS: Broadening the scope of L-band
GMDSS and SOLAS are dependent on L-band services. Traditionally, Inmarsat has delivered these exclusively but this is changing as IMO is updating regulations to include other operators such as Iridium. Both hardware and constellation requirements are changing and this will have significant impact on how the bridge communication console is specified.
We will go through the current regulation and requirements for SOLAS and shed light on what is changing as well as when these changes will have effect.
