Our communication capabilities are far reaching – from supplying individual radios through to secure end-to-end solutions, including airtime and on to bespoke integrated antenna systems.
As the direct descendent of Marconi’s first business, we are the only company to have been continuously involved in the provision, implementation, monitoring and support of marine communications since the invention of the first marine radio.
With our experience and founder’s pioneering spirit, we continue to drive innovation and technological advancement in pursuit of effortless marine communications.
Our solutions comprise systems from leading communication manufacturers along with our own in-house products to ensure that the result fits the unique requirements of each yacht.
Our communications services are wide-ranging and include GMDSS, broadband (VSAT), VOIP telephone solutions, private GSM networks, hidden antennas (for safety and aesthetics), Sat-TV and secure internal and external networks. More information is offered below.
Our sister company, Telespazio, is one of the world’s leading operators in satellite management services. Operating a network of four space centres and 25 sites around the world, these include the Fucino Space Centre, the largest satellite telecommunications centre in the world for civil use.
This partnership enables us to offer cost effective communication solutions with market leading service and reliability. We cover:
- Satellite services (VSAT, Fleet Broadband, Iridium)
- Terrestrial service (GSM, 3G, GPRS, crew mobiles)
- Sat-TV (Europe, Caribbean, USA, Middle East, Asia)
Through our in house capabilities and our network of partner companies, we offer our clients a full range of airtime services to meet their exact requirements.
There can be enormous personal, reputational and financial damage when sensitive information is stolen. With cyber attacks increasing in sophistication, complex technical knowledge is required to provide suitable protection.
We provide support at the design stage, advising on intrusion prevention, detection and retaliatory capabilities. This enables our clients to understand security risks from the outset, and ensures that appropriate counter measures, contingencies and management processes are built into the vessel’s IT infrastructure.
Integrated Antenna Solutions (IAS)
For over a decade, our IAS team has designed, manufactured and installed a range of antennas that are completely hidden from view. With a background in naval and military applications, this technology has been introduced to the superyacht market to improve aesthetics and increase safety.
Omni-directional antennas (e.g. whip aerials, GPS antennas etc) can be built into the superstructure of a yacht to completely hide them from view. As well as the aesthetic benefits, this ensures that communications are maintained in the event of a piracy attack.
Uni-directional antennas (V-SAT, Sat-TV, FBB, etc.) can be concealed in bespoke housing rather than traditionally shaped radomes to improve aesthetics.
Antenna systems are modelled and tested prior to installation to demonstrate operational effectiveness – many solutions are available for both existing and newbuild projects.
Yacht Technologies provides a range of encryption systems to ensure the very highest level of secure communication.
We have over 60 years’ experience in supplying secure solutions to government agencies and financial institutions, where systems and networks are under constant attack and the nature of prevalent threats changes rapidly.
