Astrium and SES Extend Global Service

February 12, 2013

SES and Astrium Services signed capacity deals to deliver connectivity to vessels around Latin America as well as in the North Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.
 

Astrium Services will renew capacity on the SES-4 satellite to provide its customers with managed services for maritime business communications, tracking equipment and engine performance as well as ensuring crew at sea to stay connected. Located at 338 degrees East, SES-4 is among several SES satellites providing capacity to Astrium Services enabling the company to customize services to satisfy specific needs of the maritime industry.
 

Under the new agreement Astrium Services is able to meet several specific communication needs, including reliable VSAT coverage for oil & gas activities offshore of Brazil and East Africa. Additionally, the wider footprint of SES-4 extends coverage over the Gulf of Aden to support vital connectivity to customers in piracy risk zones for instance off the coast of Somalia. The coverage also supports fisheries, transportation and recreational maritime customers in Europe.
