Inmarsat and OneOcean to deploy digital navigation

Paris, 19 April 2021. – The mobile satellite communications provider Inmarsat partners with OneOcean, a compliance and navigation service provider, to drive the “digitalisation of navigation and compliance in the maritime industry”, the companies announced.

Under the agreement, OneOcean leverages Inmarsat’s technology platform to apply its software solutions and “transform the way voyage planning software is deployed, updated and integrated between ship and shore”.

“Remote deployment of OneOcean technology is the first of many benefits of the partnership, enabling reduced set-up time, minimum disruption and, most importantly, reduced cyber risk”, the companies say.

“Physical deployment of all software has unavoidably been affected due to lockdown restrictions and growing onboard cyber security concerns. This agreement will address these issues, by enabling global deployment of software through on-demand, cyber secure, digital operations.”
