We deliver technology-forward solutions for commercial maritime needs
In many ways, the growth of satellite technology is inextricably linked to the innately human predisposition to explore, traverse, and exert dominion over the vast swath of territories and frontiers beyond our terrestrial reach. Perhaps the greatest peculiarity is that for all of those frontiers, that which is comparatively the least-supported technologically is among the first that we attempted to navigate. Intelligent maritime technologies have catered directly to fleet tracking, location reporting, and communications capability, and have certainly been servicing the industry well. In fact, the satellite industry has essentially achieved its goal of accommodating the communication needs of anyone on the planet who can see the sky from their current location. The next steps are improving the quality of service provided, and scaling up the ubiquity and diversity of those services.
The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution is the catalyst for the lion’s share of technological change across nearly every industry and sector. Smart technologies have become so pervasive, in fact, that conversations about singularity have actually left the realms of science fiction. Adding intelligent capabilities to terrestrial and aerospace devices is inherently easier than doing so within the maritime ecosystem, as the latter relies almost exclusively on satellite to support these initiatives. Satellite providers, however, have been responsive to the obvious shifts in demand toward increasing capabilities and lowering the costs of airtime, and as a result, companies can now make plans to expand their offerings to include satellite-leveraged smart technologies within the maritime industry.
The rapid pace of change exposes a number of opportunities within commercial fishing and shipping, as well as leisure, travel, and direct to consumer purveyors. Companies poised to take advantage of these opportunities are those working with engineering teams that understand industry trends, and are actively pursuing innovative approaches to solving market problems. GSE has been working with its in house engineers to deliver technology-forward solutions to its clients for nearly over a decade, and has recently directed a large portion of its efforts to IoT innovations. We have a particularly keen interest in the opportunities available to leverage our existing expertise with telemetry data and telecommunications technology, and are always actively interested in working with you to realize your “ideal world” scenario.
