Iridium Edge Solar Beta Partner

Rock Seven has been chosen as Beta partner for the new Iridium Edge Solar – due to be launched early next year. The new Iridium Edge Solar is designed to be a simple, low-cost, solar-based tracking device. Something you can attach to a boat, vehicle or other asset and then forget. Regular GPS tracking reports would then be sent from the unit, with the internal battery being recharged by the in-built solar panel. Like our other product...

VSAT Terminals: What Are They and How Do They Work?

Satellite communication touches our lives in ways most people don’t fully appreciate. From GPS to satellite TV to the communication networks that make modern economic, military and political affairs possible, there are few areas of life that the rise of SATCOM technology has not shaped in some way, directly or indirectly.

Best satellite phone communication gadgets

If you do a lot of traveling to places where you find yourself "off the grid" regularly, or you are the sort of person who likes to go on adventures and need to be able to stay in touch when off the grid? Forget the smartphone. What you need is a satellite phone. OK, a satellite phone might seem a little James Bond -- calling it a "sat phone" adds to the secret agent vibe -- but they are a lot of widespread and accessible than you might...

Sustainability in shipping

The maritime industry has a crucial part to play in international trade, with over 90% of it being transported by sea. That is good news for the environment; per tonne-kilometer, carbon emissions from shipping are significantly lower than for road or air, making shipping the most environmentally friendly means of international trade. Despite this status, the sector’s impact on our climate remains a controversial issue, demonstrating an...

WRC-19 Affirms Importance of Satellite, Ensures Clear Path for Growth for Key Technologies

Wireless technologies are fundamental to modern life: from posting on Instagram to transmitting an x-ray from a rural hospital to doctor miles away, from watching Netflix on a plane to conducting a global stock transaction. Spectrum is a finite resource and has to be shared between different applications and services. The International Telecommunications Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) meets every four years at the World...
