E3 Systems has chosen to become an Astrium Services specialist Partner for the Superyacht market.

e3 Systems is a leader in the supply of integrated communications within the superyacht market. The company’s position as an Astrium Services specialist Partner for the superyacht market for Ku-band services is the catalyst for the launch of a unique set of new services and packages. Using a combination of Astrium Services technology and the added value provided by e3 the VSAT services, as standard, are uniquely managed and monitored at the hub, on-board and remotely. This approach ensures the services deliver the reliability, consistency and flexibility that superyacht owners and operators need in order to handle the continuous growth in data demand.

Roger Horner, managing director of e3 Systems comments “Our appointment by Astrium Services as a specialist Partner for the superyacht market has been a huge feather in our cap and recognition of our experience. Astrium Services is the world’s largest maritime satellite provider and together we can offer an unbeatable portfolio of attractive services ranging from short term and flexible to very high, dedicated bandwidth. We are launching some incredibly competitive services at Monaco that will cause a phase-shift in the current status quo of suppliers for large yacht VSAT services.”

The need for owners, family, guests and crew to be able to use their tablets and smartphones as normal and be online continuously at sea is driving the demand for reliable, high bandwidth satellite communications for superyachts. Already established as a leading service in the shipping, offshore, and superyacht segments, Pharostar offers high performance and availability, backed up by Astrium’s own global infrastructure and support. e3 Systems will combine Pharostar with its highly regarded existing portfolio including, FleetBroadband, 3G/4G, remote monitoring, data management and content services, to create this exciting new offering for the superyacht segment.

Tore Morten Olsen, head of maritime services at Astrium Services added “Our partnership with e3 is already resulting in the availability of enhanced services for superyachts, which I am confident will be well received during the Monaco Yacht Show. With Pharostar as the foundation of e3’s new range of services, superyacht owners and operators can choose far more flexible and feature-rich communication solutions than previously available, reflecting our and e3’s joint commitment to meet the high expectations from owners and operators in the luxury vessel segment for sophisticated satcom services.”
