Vessel: Victor Buynitsky research vessel
Navigation area: Barents Sea and Kara Sea
Equipment: Steccom Seaspace and Iridium Pilot
Services: Internet, data transmission and VoIP telephony.
STECCOM installed a dual communication system comprising VSAT to ensure onboard wideband communication, highest-quality VoIP telephony and the Iridium Pilot system that has global coverage and can operate even at the North Pole.
Using this solution, the vessel crew will have permanent connection thus significantly improving both navigation safety (map updating, ice data receipt and communication with the research center) and loyalty of the crew members, who will be able to maintain contacts with their families.
