Developing next-gen connected vessels and aircraft of the future

  • End-user requirements vs available capabilities
  • Availability of Internet of Things (IoT) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions
  • Technology integration – standardisation requirements, intersatellite communication optimisation, sensor integration and selecting future-proof connectivity capabilities
  • Retrofits – certification, standards and technology integration such as wireless sensors and terminals, links between data systems
  • Software and data – data sharing between onboard systems, qualitative data analysis, onboard sensors and wireless IoT, cyber security
