Inmarsat’s global, mobile satellite communications services and solutions are connecting the world in places where terrestrial connectivity simply can’t reach.
Relied on for over 40 years, the company’s world-leading satellite networks touch every aspect of life, all over the planet, to keep communities, companies and countries connected when it matters most – even during the most turbulent times.
Inmarsat was set up in 1979 by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to develop a satellite communications network for protecting lives at sea and we are deeply proud of our safety heritage.
The company was the first satellite operator to meet the stringent requirements of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for global safety communications.
Every day their maritime safety services protect the lives of 1.6 million seafarers and their aviation safety services ensure millions of people can fly safely. Through their partnerships with disaster response agencies such as Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF), they are also able to play their part in helping to protect millions of people on land too.
