FleetBroadband Broadcast Tall Ships Challenge

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

Stratos Global Corporation announced it has deployed an Inmarsat FleetBroadband mobile satellite system onboard the tall ship Bark Europa to broadcast coverage of the final leg of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge between Halifax and Belfast. The system is being used by BBC Northern Ireland.
 
The Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge 2009 (www.tallshipsraces.org) is organized by Sail Training International and the American Sail Training Assoc. In April, more than 30 tall ships began competing in a series of races that will eventually cover more than 7,000 miles including ports in Spain, Africa, Bermuda, Canada and Northern Ireland. The final leg of the race began July 20 in Halifax and is scheduled to end in Belfast on August 13.
 
FleetBroadband from Stratos is being used onboard the Bark Europa (www.barkeuropa.com) to provide live and recorded reports during the race’s final leg.
 
The system is integrated with QuickLink software to enable live video streaming at speeds of 256 kpbs. It is also utilizing Stratos Dashboard to set high-usage alerts and monitor traffic usage. Stratos Trench, an online customer-managed firewall utility, is preventing unauthorized access.
