The future of maritime safety: an exclusive Inmarsat report and discussion

Date: Wednesday 2 June Time: 11:00-11:45 BST


Premier partner:

Join this Riviera Maritime Media webinar for exclusive insights into The Future of Maritime Safety report, accompanied by a presentation and discussion with Inmarsat’s senior vice president responsible for safety and security services, Peter Broadhurst.


Mr Broadhurst will share the exclusive findings of a three-year study of vessel GMDSS distress alert data. He will link this data with a bold vision for GMDSS where algorithms and Artificial Intelligence anticipate and trigger early warning of distress for enhanced protecting of crew on Solas and non-Solas vessels.


The study is part of a new safety research report The Future of Maritime Safety. The Future of Maritime Safety also carries industry opinion from IMO, ICS, BIMCO, InterManager and UK P&I Club. A common thread is how greater industry collaboration and the use of new technologies will proactively safeguard life at sea and monitor and prevent future incidents.
