    I watched Iridium’s virtual press conference yesterday and another thing they emphasized about their new GMDSS-enabled systems is that they also compete with existing solutions on cost. The Lars Thrane LT-3100S is the first Iridium GMDSS approved system…

    … but I understand that the same capabilities will soon be available with the Certus systems that are doing such great work on the Vendee Globe fleet right now:

    Also, I recommend watching the press conference if you wonder why it can take so long to modify international marine safety regulations.
