Since 1991 St. Petersburg has been the venue for Russia’s leading B2B commercial maritime event, NEVA. FleetMon is proud to be playing a proactive role in this year’s exhibition and conference.
NEVA, the International Maritime Exhibition and Conference of Russia, has been supporting the accelerating expansion of the country’s commercial maritime industries by promoting development opportunities, products, services, designers and manufacturers as well as their cooperation with the international shipping community. This year’s bigger-than-ever and fully booked event, the 14th of its kind, takes place from September 19-22 at the exhibition and conference complex near St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo International Airport, and FleetMon will be proactively involved.
All the preparations for NEVA 2017 have now been completed and several exhibitor meetings held. The FleetMon brochures have been translated into Russian and advertising material sent off in good time. “We can’t wait to meet visitors and other exhibitors who come to our section of the Mecklenburg-Pomerania state pavilion,” says Carsten Hilgenfeld, FleetMon’s Head of Research and Development. “We’re very much aware of how significant this event is in strengthening ties between the Russian maritime industry and international suppliers.”
From 2-4 pm on September 21 Lars Brandstaeter, FleetMon’s CEO, will be presenting a paper at a NEVA workshop. The focus of his talk – “FleetMon’s ETA and ETD data employed on the Russian market” – will be on the practical relevance of FleetMon’s world-leading AIS vessel tracking platform to the Russian maritime industries.

At the end of July we were invited by the University of Stuttgart and the Institute of Transportation Research Stuttgart (which is part of Germany’s excellence cluster „simulation technology“) to take part in a workshop on maritime performance calculation on August 24, 2016. After several warm-up presentations, it was discussed how existing algorithms can be improved, in order to generate more accurate results and faster calculation times.
It could be noted, that further research for the improved performance and capacity in the calculation of shipping routes is needed. Main applications in particular apply for shearing and intersecting traffic. According to the participants, there is significant ongoing research, but the results cannot be applied in practice. At the end of the day, each participant was satisfied with the workshop and everyone agreed to work together on future development projects.
SMM, the world’s leading trade fair for the maritime industry takes place from September 6th to 9th in Hamburg, Germany.
With the presence of almost every relevant industry player, the show is the perfect venue for spotting new trends, developing new business contacts, and interacting with leaders in the maritime sector.
FleetMon will be present at this top event for the international maritime industry. If you plan on attending, we would like to take the opportunity to get to know you and your company during the SMM.
With the release of our new Historical Track module we now provide a free, monthly budget to all users of FleetMon with an Unlimited, SAT15 or SAT 50 account. On every first day of the month, your credit balance will be replenished. Should you already own a credit budget, the gift credits will be used first.
Security in networks has been an ongoing iusse for many years. With the intensive use of communication technology as open and collaborative, the increasingly interconnected world, makes computers and data ever more difficult to secure. Confidential information eventually finds its way to third parties.
The chance to meet face to face with clients and market participants is very important to us. After several interesting and informative meetings at the Digitital Ship show in Hamburg earlier this year we are now looking forward to our next engagement.
We are happy to announce the release of the Traffic Density Map in FleetMon Explorer! Now you are able to visualize local and global shipping lanes with the click of a button. You can determine exact traffic areas in port and at sea as well as filter vessel routes by vessel and signal type in one easy to use interactive map.
Second mission completes OG2 constellation to provide global M2M messaging and AIS services
Rochelle Park, NJ, December 21, 2015 – ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things T) solutions, today announced that it has successfully launched eleven next generation OG2 satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida at 8:29 pm ET. The eleven OG2 satellites were successfully separated from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle into the proper insertion orbit.
“Today marks a significant milestone for our company. We’d like to thank our vendors and partners for their cooperation in this effort,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “I’d also like to commend the ORBCOMM team for their hard work and dedication in making our second OG2 mission a success. Lastly, I’d like to congratulate SpaceX on making history by landing the Falcon 9’s reusable Stage one booster from a record altitude. It’s an exciting day for all of us in the space industry.”
In short the private space agency SpaceX just brought up all 11 ORBCOMM OG2 satellites in nominal orbits and landed the first stage of its Falcon rocket successfully back on earth. Think about that and all it’s implications: you fire up satellites into orbit and instead of throwing your expensive rocket into the ocean and build another one … you just land it, refuel it and give it another shot. What a giant leap! Beside the fact that some nations couldn’t even build airports anymore (no names here), that is quite impressive. For more information about SpaceX and the grand master Elon Musk, please read this article … the most funny and brainful stuff you will find.
And what about those ORBCOMM satellites? Those OG2 satellites are quite small next generation M2M-satellites, which form the backbone of a growing dedicated machine-2-machine communication network. This new generation of OG2 satellites provides more bandwidth, better coverage and less power consumption. But what we at FleetMon.com love even more, is that every OG2 satellite is equipped with an AIS payload to receive and report transmissions from AIS-equipped vessels.
Are you up to date about the real maritime picture?
This week another meteorological hazard is spotted in FleetMon Explorer – Tropical Cyclone Nilofar. The cyclone shaped up in the Arabian Sea and has already developed into a Category 4. With the gusts of 160mph it is the most powerful storm in the region since 2010.
Two weeks ago Super Typhoon Vongfong — the strongest tropical cyclone of the year, equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane — was moving steadily towards Japan and the islands of Kadena and Okinawa, winds were expected to reach 165mph.
FleetMon lets you easily check current weather and sea state anywhere on the globe! Stay up to date on the development of tropical storms, hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons and keep an eye on your vessels in areas with heavy seas.
