Stay Connected at Sea
Satcom Direct has been connecting business aviation customers for 25 years. Now we’re taking your marine communications to the next level with a seamless in-journey experience between your jet and your leisure vessel. Or connect just your vessel with the same premium quality of service and support enjoyed by all our customers.
Your Best Solution
SD’s customized connectivity solutions leverage the best-available industry technologies to meet your needs for performance, coverage and budget. We work closely with you to determine the right mix of products and services based on your unique requirements to make the time on your vessel as enjoyable and productive as possible.
Combine the latest high-speed Ka- or Ku-band satellite services with highly resilient L-band services for global connectivity in all weather conditions. Complemented by cellular services when in coverage to use the most cost-efficient communications available. And guarantee bandwidth available for the optimal onboard experience.
Sign up to a flexible plan that allows active service during the season and suspended service when your vessel is not in use.
Make life easier with one satellite communications invoice and one point of contact for both your yacht and your aircraft.
Relax while we monitor network service round the clock and provide vessel support before, during, and after every voyage to ensure your onboard communications are all running smoothly.
For All Onboard Applications
Download chart and weather updates, coordinate with port authorities, and organize supply deliveries during the voyage. Remotely monitor your engine from shore for preventative maintenance that prolongs its operational lifetime.
Keep in touch with family and friends by phone, messaging apps, email, and video calling. Access the internet, social networks, and streaming media services. And if you do need to attend to business onboard, access your corporate VPN and attend videoconferences.
Safety and Compliance
Meet International Maritime Organization requirements with a solution that is compliant with the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). Monitor the weather in real-time, share your position, and if conditions turn for the worse or you have a mechanical failure, send an SOS alert to summon help.
Global One Number
SD’s pioneering Global One Number (GON) service has been available for aircraft since 1997. We now bring the same convenience to leisure vessels, enabling you to call the vessel directly on its own unique number, regardless of location. It’s simple to reach passengers wherever they, without needing to know which region the vessel is in. SD’s marineV service simplifies this even further by enabling passengers to configure their smartphones as extensions of the GON via the onboard satellite phone system.
SD’s marineV service enables fully-featured VoIP calling using your smartphone over the vessel’s internet connection. Your phone becomes an extension of the vessel phone system, allowing you to be reached directly through Global One Number® (GON) and your configured extension. Simply connect to the vessel Wi-Fi to make calls and send text messages using your contacts.
SD Cabin Marine App
Monitor and manage cabin connectivity, systems and passage details through the SD Cabin Marine App, which is free to use on any leisure vessel with satellite services provided via SD.
See your route and real-time vessel tracking through an interactive map which shows your origin, destination, and ETA. Plus, coverage maps for L, Ku, and Ka-band satellite services and 4G/LTE cellular networks.
Monitor and manage onboard network systems, automatically detect the vessel configuration and onboard services, conduct Wi-Fi connectivity diagnostics, identify connected devices, perform network scans with a single click, and access technical support features.
All you need is an active Wi-Fi connection to the onboard Satcom Direct Marine Router.
