    • iCSA Integrated Communications and Situational Awareness
    iCSA is the seamless unification of radio and IP communications between disparate networks and devices across wide areas of terrain (beyond the line of sight). Unification of communications and operation control centres is an important part of the iCSA capability which recognises the need for: One-to-One, One-to-Group or One to ALL communications. iCSA enables transmissions across wide terrains and multiple groups, with equipment ranging from radios and IP, to cell/mobile phones and more.
    • INTEGRA Network 
    INTEGRA is a complete solution that delivers the first real-time application control for your satellite communications and the easiest on-board traffic management. INTEGRA See is available 'free' on all SIM's and services that are routed via the INTEGRA network. Shows the cumulative use of 12 categories in data usage for a calendar month. Shows the cumulative use of top 10 applications used for a calendar month and resets at month end. INTEGRA Control is part of our INTEGRA suite of services and is 'The Smartest Way To Manage Your Data'. INTEGRA Edge makes the task of managing your traffic on board a lot easier, using a hardware-based solution that’s purposely designed for the maritime environment.  This comprehensive solution allows you to control all your on-board communications through one simple interface – not two or three – so it’s a lot easier to get more from it. And a lot easier to save money.
    • IRIS
    In Short: Command.  Control. Optimise. IRIS is cost-efficient remote monitoring and control application for IoT over satellite, enabling users to unlock the true potential of IoT and M2M.  The application is versatile and customisable and is suitable for a wide range of uses from, pressure and sensor monitoring to animal and personnel tracking. IRIS gives you real-time visibility of all your assets in remote locations, wherever they are in the world – from ships, vehicles, cargo and people to wildlife and hot air balloons. Collect data on key operational parameters such as location, pressure & flow, temperature, speed, altitude and battery life. Real-time visibility of your remote assets is totally dependent on the M2M terminal functioning properly. IRIS enables real-time remote control of your satellite M2M terminals for all key tasks including; firmware upgrade, start/stop data session, retrieve network information and reset password. IRIS improves your operational efficiency with real-time intelligence on remote assets to quickly identify issues, improve decision making and speed up your response. IRIS significantly reduces the need for site visits to locations that are often hard to reach – saving both cost and time, which may be critical where safety is concerned.
    • AST PMS
    The AST-Planned Maintenance System is a powerful organisational software tool that enables vessels to reduce their operational expenses. The AST-Planned Maintenance System is a sophisticated, but easy to use, modular application designed for Marine Engineers and Operations Managers to cost effectively manage their vessel(s) maintenance tasks. The software enables users to plan, monitor, record and implement complex maintenance tasks, including compliance reporting and innovative predictive maintenance monitoring. The AST-Planned Maintenance System contributes towards improved maintenance on the vessel(s) increasing efficiencies by avoiding downtime and preventing part(s) malfunction. From medical supplies to the main engine, every piece of equipment sent on board can be listed together with any associated work procedures. Already used on a number of vessels around the world, including tankers and crew transfer vessels, the software allows both the ship’s crew and the office based team(s) to manage daily checks, stock levels and routine procedures for the whole vessel.
    • VMS+
    The VMS+ dual channel (satellite and GPRS) transponder was specifically developed for the monitoring of fishing vessels in the harsh European waters. The terminal has an integrated design in which all electronic circuitry, antennas, GPS receiver, GPRS and satellite communication channels as well as back-up rechargeable batteries are housed in one compact unit above the vessel’s deck. All EU reporting data is transmitted via an Iridium satellite based communication service (SCS). The GPRS channel is primarily used for inshore reporting, which is formatted to conform to national and inshore requirements.
    • DiGiGone
    DigiGone™ Sat-Chat takes satellite communication technology to the next evolutionary step. It allows clients to communicate around the world, through fully encrypted means, with minimal encryption overhead. Sat-Chat provides our clients with Secure Video Teleconferencing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), IM Chat, and File Transfer capabilities, even from the most remote locations while using BGAN or FleetBroadband. Sat-Chat’s plug & play feature provides you instant encrypted communication with other team members around the world, at the touch of a button. Easy to use and extremely affordable. Just plug it in and away you go!  DigiGone’s ‘Bandwidth Select’ technology significantly lowers the cost of bandwidth, which each user controls, therefore no worry about communications being secure. DigiGone automatically encrypts all communications, end to end.
    • onsatmail 
    onsatmail provides internet email over mobile satellite phone; Inmarsat, Iridium, & Thuraya or IP-based links such as with Inmarsat's Mobile Packet Data Service & BGAN. onsatmail from AST uses a specialised data transfer protocol especially designed for transferring data over low-bandwidth. This protocol along with data compression reduces connect time and increases throughput on circuit-data connections and overall traffic on IP-based links.
    • iRAMS
    AST iRAMS is a ground breaking proven vessel engine and asset management system. Global marine technologies have advanced and improved recently with added functionality such as engine monitoring via satellite communications in conjunction with GSM. AST’s engine management system makes use of these technologies to transfer operational parameters from a vessel anywhere in the world to your office. These parameters are then presented in the iRAMS solution, enabling operations staff to view and act upon the information in near real time. iRAMS also provides the ability to feed this vessel information automatically into your preventative maintenance schedules. The engine management system provides all of this functionality and more. Installation on board your vessel of a tried and tested system that proactively monitors different aspects of your vessel is a simple and non-intrusive process. The on-board hardware connects to your vessels most expensive component (the engines) and transmits the data in near real time to a simple to user web interface. This web interface then allows shore based operations staff clear visibility of the not only the vessels location, but also its engine data. The engine data is presented in a format similar to the on-board engine MPD’s.
