Robust and reliable strategic maritime communication - voice, text messaging and position tracking.

"..people at sea do not have access to the same telecommunications infrastructure people ashore have. Like people ashore, Mariners need to access international shore telephone and data public switched networks. Additionally they need to access many maritime specific communications listed below:

  • Mariners need to be able to communicate with other ships of any size or nationality.
  • Mariners need to be able to receive and send urgent maritime safety information.
  • Mariners need to be able to send or receive distress alerts in an emergency to or from rescue coordination centers ashore and nearby ships anywhere in the world.

Maritime telecommunications systems must be internationally interoperable. Bringing new telecommunications technology to mariners can be difficult, since to be interoperable, the technology must be affordable, acceptable and available to most ships and maritime countries."

Applied Satellite Engineering, a leader in satellite communications, provides strategic maritime communication for business or safety including SMS text messaging, GPS position reporting, and high-quality voice communication using the Iridium satellite network.

Voice Communication

ASE fixed mount satellite communication terminals bring always ready, always available satellite communication indoors. The voice channel can be accessible throughout the vessel when connected to your PBX or wireless base station, or can be operated locally using a corded privacy handset.

The small footprint of the corded privacy handset combined with the high quality of the voice channel, make ASE terminals an excellent installation choice for the captain's phone. For smaller vessels - using the same terminal - connect RJ11 to a wireless base station and install wireless handsets in each cabin. For larger vessels - install a terminal for crew use by connecting the RJ11 into the ship's PBX infrastructure. PIN code protection can be assigned to crew members allowing post-paid access. Prepaid (scratch-card) usage is available to everyone.

SMS Text Messaging

Periodic Position Tracking

ASE terminals support many 3rd party apps for compressed and optimized satellite data communication. Contact ASE to learn more.
