Inmarsat Partners with Space Agency for Maritime IoT

Inmarsat Maritime has announced a collaboration with the Hellenic Space Agency to partner on research projects and potential technology development for Maritime.

The industry leading mobile satellite communications company and the Greek space agency will look at the role of satellite deployment within the Internet of Things (IoT), and the potential for strategic research studies on future maritime software technologies.

President of Inmarsat Maritime, Ronald Spithout, said: "This agreement underlines an already strong and collaborative partnership between Inmarsat and the Hellenic Space Agency.

"We look forward to this further developing in the years to come and seeing the benefits of projects which will help shape our industry."

Chairman of the Hellenic Space Agency, Christodoulos Protopapas, commented: “Inmarsat is one of the most respected global space businesses and it is hugely exciting that this memorandum will pave the way for greater cooperation with us on a number of levels.

“Whether it is an exchange of skills, data or people, we will work on initiatives which will increase knowledge and understanding of the impact of satellite technology.”

The agreement was signed by the two companies at the international shipping event Posidonia 2018.
