MARIOT – BETTER COMMUNICATION & NAVIGATION

Written by Astrid Kjeldal March 26, 2020

Space Inventor is excited to announce that we are one of six partners to develop a satellite-based maritime IoT network to demonstrate selected maritime/arctic services using VDES.

The project, MARIOT (Maritime IoT), aims to increase the safety for ships sailing in the Arctic area by enabling better communication and navigation on board the ships through a low orbit satellite network.

Space Inventor is responsible for the overall satellite platform for the MARIOT-1 satellite, which will be the first of 50 satellites to be launched by the operator and leading project partner Sternula.

The Project is partly funded by Innovation Fund Denmark.
