Nera Introduces F33

Nera SatCom AS, together with

Inmarsat, introduced the Nera F33 prod- uct concept to fill the gap between the existing Inmarsat Mini-M service/Nera

WorldPhone and the global Inmarsat

Fleet 77 service/Nera F77. The new

Nera F33 is based on the Inmarsat Fleet

F33 service concept, providing the light marine market with improved data com- munications from equipment suitable for the demands of today's commercial and leisure fleet. The launch of the serv- ice is due in early 2003. For vessels operating on deep-sea global routes, the new Nera F77, based on Inmarsat Fleet 77 services would be the preferred installation. Fleet F33 is designed to fill the gap between the two existing servic- es. The F33 terminal antenna is consid- erably smaller than the global Nera F77, making it suitable for smaller vessels and any light marine vessels with IP- requirements such as smaller yachts, fishing vessels and smaller coastal fleet.

Ottar Bjaastad. Nera Maritime

Business Manager, said, "By launching

Nera F33 we are responding directly to a market sector whose data require- ments have outgrown the capabilities of

Mini-M. but which may be exceeded by the Nera F77's comprehensive service offering.."
