Crews aboard maritime research support vessels have a difficult job – providing security and mission management services to their fleets in waters around the globe. To make that job a little easier, and help crew members stay in touch with family and friends, companies. Offshore crew members use the reliable, affordable mini VSAT Broadband SM service to communicate with the home office, file required paperwork in international ports, and stay in touch with loved ones back home.
The vessels send daily reports to the client the charterer as an electronic log, including details about the vessel’s activities, information about the itinerary, and speed, as well as mandatory, monthly Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment (QHSE) reports to the Storm Offshore office, supporting our dedication to outstanding QHSE monitoring and consistent results. There are operational benefits to the airtime structure, as well. We can now send large files without trying to calculate how many megabytes they will use. For example, we can now send a manual that is 10 MB, which would not have been feasible with the old system because it would have cost a fortune.
The Use of Global Interconnection
Global mini VSAT Broadband network is ideal for research vessels and fleets that travel the world investigating ocean conditions and sea life. We recognize that every vessel has a unique set of communications needs, and we are committed to the continued development of our mini-VSAT Broadband-compatible antenna family, along with value-added options. Our solution makes it possible for commercial operators to build a system that meets their needs and their budgets.
Storm Offshore agrees that support for crew morale is a valuable benefit of having mini VSAT Broadband onboard. Our crew are most happy to have free access to call and e-mail home. They would definitely recommend this solution to their peers.
The Advent of More Communication Satellites
Many industries and its subsidiaries are leading providers of in-motion satellite TV and communication systems, having designed, manufactured, and sold more than 150,000 mobile satellite antennas for applications on vessels, vehicles, and aircraft. Its mission is to connect mobile customers around the globe with the same digital television entertainment, communications, and Internet services that they enjoy in their homes and offices. There are many companies that are based in Middletown, RI, with facilities in Illinois, Denmark, Norway, and Singapore.
