Astrium Services, global provider of satcom enabled solutions, will join e3 on its Monaco Yacht Show stand (QS85 – Darse Sud - Tente Climatisee) for the introduction of an enhanced portfolio of services for owners and operators of Super Yachts, based on Astrium’s established Pharostar VSAT solution. e3 Systems has chosen to become an Astrium Services specialist Partner for the Super Yacht market for Ku-band services.

e3 Systems is a supplier of integrated communications, networking and advanced IT and TV solutions within the Super Yacht market. The company’s position as an Astrium Services specialist Partner for the Super Yacht market for Ku-band services is the catalyst for the launch of a unique set of new services and packages. Using a combination of Astrium Services technology and the added value provided by e3 the VSAT services, as standard, are uniquely managed and monitored at the hub, on-board and remotely. This approach ensures the services deliver the reliability, consistency and flexibility that Super Yacht owners and operators need in order to handle the continuous growth in data demand.

The need for owners, family, guests and crew to be able to use their tablets and smartphones as normal and be online continuously at sea is driving the demand for reliable, high bandwidth satellite communications for Super Yachts. Already established as a leading service in the shipping, offshore, and Super Yacht segments, Pharostar offers high performance and availability, backed up by Astrium’s own global infrastructure and support. e3 Systems will combine Pharostar with its highly regarded existing portfolio including, FleetBroadband, 3G/4G, remote monitoring, data management and content services, to create this exciting new offering for the Super Yacht segment.

Tore Morten Olsen, Head of Maritime Services at Astrium Services, said, “With Pharostar as the foundation of e3’s new range of services, Super Yacht owners and operators can choose far more flexible and feature-rich communication solutions than previously available, reflecting our and e3’s joint commitment to meet the high expectations from owners and operators in the luxury vessel segment for sophisticated satcom services.”
