Satellite vessel stations “Gonets” will be used on Rosribolovstvo sailing vessels in a round-the-world expedition.
JSC “Satellite System “Gonets” jointly with FSBI “Center of monitoring system of fishery and communications” (CMSC) will install ship satellite vessel stations “Gonets” on Rosribolovstvo’s sailing training-ships “Sedov”, “Pallada” and “Kruzenshtern” which are going to set for a round-the-world expedition in yrs. 2019-2020.
The forthcoming sea trip is held in conjunction with two historical events - two-hundredth anniversary of Antarctic discovering and seventy-five anniversary of Victory in The Great Patriotic War. The expedition sailing vessels will put off to sea in November-December 2019 from three different Russia’s ports. It is planned that “Sedov” will start from Kronshtadt, “Kruzenshtern” – from Kaliningrad, and “Pallada” – from Vladivostok. The route of the round-the-world trip partly coincides with that of Faddey Bellinsgauzen and Michail Lazarev.
Pavel Cherenkov, CEO of JSC “Satellite System “Gonets” about the coming event: “Monitoring services on ships is one of priority areas of Russian mobile satellite system “Gonets” use, and we are glad to help Russian round-the-world expedition to track their sailing vessels along their long sea route especially since for the “Gonets” system services there are not latitude limitations. JSC “Satellite System “Gonets” along with our long-standing partner FSBI “CMSC” will carry out all the necessary work to install the subscriber equipment on the sailing vessels that all who is going to follow the expedition can receive timely information about its progress.
Through the “Gonets” system satellite constellation, vessel stations “Gonets” will be transmitting the vessels positioning data to the gateways in Russia’s territory where from it will reach the fishery industry monitoring system of FSBI “CMSC” which is going to launch at their website a special web-service running on its own mapping to track the sailing vessels on the route. Such a scheme will let all interested users get accurate information about the moving of the vessels in both the hemispheres online.
The round-the-world expedition of Rosribolovstvo’s sailing training-ships “Sedov”, “Pallada” and Kruzenshtern is to demonstrate Russia’s capabilities as one of the world’s leading maritime powers and act as a peace ambassador. That’s why all the three member-ships of the sailing will carry on their masts a special sign of peace – white sails.
The total length of the expedition will be about 100 thousand nautical miles, while the sailing should be finished at the end of 2020.
