The welfare of crews on-board commercial vessels is a subject that our maritime connectivity team has discussed before especially during COVID. This recent piece in The Financial Times The plight of ship crews stranded at sea says that “When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, more than 300,000 commercial seafarers were left stranded on their ships well past the expiry of their contracts, because virus control measures and travel restrictions prevented crews from being rotated. Part of the problem then was the length of time it took many countries to classify them as “key workers” in spite of the fact that their work was, quite clearly, key”.
Obtaining aerial footage of ongoing emergency situations such as fires and traffic accidents has just got easier thanks to a partnership between two Swiss companies, Telecom26 and Fotokite.
As predicted in earlier blogs, 5G has been centre stage at this week’s Mobile Congress.
