Vizada, Météo-France Renew Maritime Weather Technology Partnership
[Satellite TODAY 12-07-09] Vizada renewed their agreement with Météo-France to provide professional digital weather information and software to the maritime community, Vizada announced Dec. 4.
The partnership renewal will see the release of a new version of Vizada’s SkyFile Weather solution, initially launched in October, based on Météo-France’s Navimail2 software to deliver meteorological information to maritime crews through a direct Internet connection established via a mobile satellite terminal. The new solution will support a range of IP-based maritime services, including Inmarsat FleetBroadband and Iridium OpenPort.
Vizada will also introduce a monthly subscription option at the beginning of 2010, which aims to enable customers to download up to three weather files per day for a fixed amount, as opposed to paying per file download.
