UAE-based Thuraya, a global satellite operator, will unveil its ground-breaking maritime satellite
service VSAT+ in Europe at this year's Nor-Shipping conference and exhibition event in Oslo, Norway.
"This time, the mission is very innovative as three experiments were attached to it -- automatic identification system from ISRO for maritime satellite
applications capturing messages transmitted from ships, automatic Packet Repeating System from AMSAT (Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation) and Advanced Retarding Potential for Ionospheric Studies (ARIS) from Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) for the structural studies of ionosphere," he added.
This will be followed by bringing the rocket down further to 485km when the fourth stage/engine will turn into a payload platform carrying three experimental payloads: (a) Automatic Identification System (AIS) from ISRO for Maritime satellite
applications capturing messages transmitted from ships (b) Automatic Packet Repeating System (APRS) from AMSAT (Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation), India - to assist amateur radio operators in tracking and monitoring position data and (c) Advanced Retarding Potential Analyser for Ionospheric Studies (ARIS) from Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) - for the structural and compositional studies of ionosphere, the space agency said.
IEC Telecom is to open-up the Turkish maritime and offshore markets to value-added voice and data services through a new tie-up that will bring Thuraya's VSAT+ maritime satellite
service to the region.
Honeywell's JetWave TM satellite communications hardware provides high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi service worldwide by seamlessly establishing Ka-band communication links with the Global Xpress Network of the International Maritime Satellite
