Maritime Satcom Forum Presented by GVF




Established in 2010 by the international industry, the GVF Maritime Satcom Forum (MSF) has launched a range of initiatives designed to facilitate more productive satellite-sector engagement with shipping companies. These initiatives have included building a strong relationship with the international association of shipping managers – InterManager. From satcom training and regulatory advocacy, to GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) capacity and product quality assurance, the MSF is matching maritime customer requirements with industry deliverables. This session will discuss existing technologies, outline timelines, progress reports, examine new technology offerings for service adoption, and chart the future course of the GMDSS and MSF. It will also examine how expanding equipment choices and training with greater capabilities and higher degrees of sophistication will greatly enhance communication and crew safety.
