Communicating with ships at sea has never been as easy as it is today thanks to satellite technology and a regulatory requirement for almost all vessels afloat to be equipped with it.
As new concepts such as autonomous ships and e-navigation are explored, the communication options seem to increase. While most recent attention has been on VSAT, new uses for radio are also being found with VDES and MBR being very good examples. Both are covered within this guide along with more conventional technologies and the uses they are being put to.
