Triton Diving Uses Hughes Maritime Broadband

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Triton Diving Services, LLC is keeping its crews safer and delivering more proficient diving services to offshore customers thanks to the Hughes Maritime Broadband solution from Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES). Louisiana-based Triton provides a host of diving services to oil companies, derrick barges, government, and commercial vessels, and other businesses operating in the Gulf of Mexico. The company is outfitting its fleet of vessels with high-speed Internet, data, VoIP, and video capabilities to provide critical ship-to-shore and diver-to-ship communications.

Triton has been active in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill cleanup. The new network will support this effort, as well as applications such as drilling rig inspections, underwater video feeds from divers, vessel tracking and measurement, and Wi-Fi for the boats’ onboard Internet cafes. As Triton makes employee safety its top priority, one of the main applications of the Hughes Maritime Broadband solution will be to provide critical real-time data for Triton’s Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Management System.

Triton’s broadband network and applications are fully managed by Hughes in partnership with ESSI Corporation. ESSI installed Hughes’ marine-stabilized VSAT antennas on Triton’s fleet of Diving Support Vessels (DSVs), which tracks the satellite and compensates for constant pitch and yaw movement of the vessels.
