Enable communication between the ship bridge and shore using AIS 2.0 (VDES) with a big deployable VHF yagi antenna made by Space Inventor.
The satellite will enable communication between the ship bridge and shore using AIS 2.0 (VDES) with a big deployable VHF yagi antenna made by Space Inventor. This satellite will also demonstrate the means of maritime VDE-SAT e-Navigation services in the Arctic, thereby improving security and efficiency for maritime traffic in the Arctic.
Maritime authorities and the global maritime industry have identified a range of needs for safety and navigational services in the form of the e-Navigation strategy anchored under United Nations/IMO. The VDES standard, an extension to the popular AIS technology, has been specified as the new communications channel for e-Navigation. These will form the starting point of the MARIOT project.
The MARIOT project is a collaboration between six innovative partners, and it is supported by Innovation Fund Denmark.
