Satellites for More Safety and Efficiency in Maritime Operations

Dr Meyer-Larsen, ISL, explores how satellite-based services can support the marine and maritime community.

Increasing safety and efficiency and reducing the risk of operations is one of the core ambitions of carriers, ports and stakeholders in the maritime industry.
