Inmarsat Launch New

Fleet Services

Inmarsat has launched the commercial availability of the Fleet F55 and Fleet

F33, incorporating global voice, and a range of fax and data services.

Inmarsat Fleet F55 and F33 are designed to bring the benefits of satellite communications to vessels, which were previously restricted by size and cost of terminal hardware. Maritime informa- tion, such as sea and weather charts, can now be accessed online and updated in real-time. The configuration of the prod- ucts gives the option for two distinct data channels. Currently offering voice, data and email, it is planned to extend the Fleet F33 service in 2004 with the option of a mobile packet data service (MPDS), to enable crew to send imme- diate short burst data with an 'always on' capability at low cost.

LandSea Systems introduced a new maritime high-speed terminal — the TT- 3086A Capsat Fleet55. The latest mem- ber of Thrane & Thrane's Fleet product family, the Capsat Fleet55 is a more compact version of the Capsat Fleet77 terminal. Available from stock, the

Fleet55 provides mariners high-speed and cost effective voice and data com- munications based on either MPDS (Mobile Packet Data Service) protocol with constant online access, or on a 64K

ISDN connection. The new standard

MPDS feature allows the user the abili- ty to be online, all of the time, paying only for the data sent and received rather than paying for the time online.

With its lightweight and compact transceiver and antenna, the Capsat

Fleet55 is quick and easy to install. The tracking antenna is 27 in. high, has a diameter of just 22 in., and weighs 39 lbs.
