Mission Statement


London - Washington DC



The seas and oceans of the world, at the surface and in the depths, are a vital resource for industry, trade, and leisure. Though hostile compared with most of the land masses, their vital, and increasing, importance as a means of transport for our globalised trade goods, as an important source of food supplies and of vital energy resources, as well as an environment for our entertainment pursuits, is not diminished. Our ability to communicate effectively whilst on its surface and exploiting its depths is paramount, and now goes beyond only the means to improve of the safety of seafarers and their vessels – the key consideration associated with the first maritime satellite communications networks, and naturally of great importance.
