Inmarsat was set up in 1979 by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to enable ships to stay in constant touch with shore or to call for help in an emergency, no matter how far out to sea. As the industry leader and pioneer of mobile satellite communications, Inmarsat has been powering global connectivity for more than three decades. They offer an unrivalled portfolio of global satcom solutions and value-added services to keep you connected at all times – whether travelling on land, at sea or in the air. No matter where the business takes you, you can rely on Inmarsat for all the mission-critical communications. Global phones and broadband internet As well as merchant shipping, the customers include governments, airlines, the broadcast media, the oil and gas industry, mining, construction, and humanitarian aid agencies – to name just a few. They connect to the fleet of 13 satellites using a range of equipment, including global handheld satellite phones and notebook-size broadband internet devices, as well as specialist terminals and antennas fitted to ships, aircraft and road vehicles. Market leader in mobile satellite services The business has grown strongly since 1999 when they became the first intergovernmental organisation to transform into a private company, later floating on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: ISAT.L) in 2005. In fact, today Inmarsat plc is the market leader in the provision of mobile satellite services, with the largest portfolio of global satellite communications solutions and value-added services on the market.
