This course is an introduction to satellite-based communication systems. The course covers different satellite systems, including coverage, speed, price, and usage. It also introduces the possibilities for having an internet connection on board while at sea.
Today, there is a lot of communication via satellite. In this course, you learn about the satellite systems used at sea. One of these systems includes Iridium, which offers telephony and data communication.
The Iridium system has been approved as an emergency system for commercial transport. But it is also interesting for sailors who travel beyond local waters.
Another option is the SAT-Phone that, unlike Iridium, gets coverage from geostationary satellites. In this course, we present different phone options for the two systems.
