UK based StratumFive, a leading maritime tech company, and  Inmarsat, the world leader in global, mobile satellite communications, have signed an agreement for StratumFive to join the  fast-growing group of Certified Application Providers connecting  with Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service. 

Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads  it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application  Process Interface (API). StratumFive will use the Fleet Data API to eliminate the problem  of connecting shipboard data to cutting edge applications such as StratumFive’s voyage  intelligence platform, Podium. 

Podium moves data interpretation forward by connecting data sources or third party  applications and integrating them within its unique timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational monitoring and decision-making. These benefits can only be  1 of 2 achieved with first class data inputs, so the addition of Fleet Data is a major step forward  and allows the StratumFive and Inmarsat-serviced fleets to connect to Podium. 

Within the Podium environment, billions of data points received through Fleet Data can  be assembled by the user to deliver optimum voyage context and insight. With past  vessel performance, near real-time visibility of present performance, and predictive  performance, opportunities to save fuel, cut emissions, and lower operational costs are  made easier. 

“The addition of Fleet Data to the growing list of Podium integrations  provides our clients a complete end-to-end integrated IoT experience,  without the prohibitive costs of alternative solutions. Accessing timely  sensor data ashore has been historically challenging and expensive for  many ship owners and operators, typically requiring bespoke onboard  data networks with connections to hundreds of individual data points.  Often this has involved custom interfaces to legacy equipment or delayed and unreliable manual inputs. 

“When combined with Podium, the Fleet Data solution addresses these problems, enabling all clients to quickly visualise correlated data streams, fleet-wide, in an agile shore-side dashboard environment. This is the solution that our industry needs in order to  reap the promised cost savings and other operational efficiencies of  digitalisation.” says Ross Martin, StratumFive COO. 

“We are delighted to be working with StratumFive, and as a trusted  and respected company in the shipping community, Inmarsat and StratumFive will combine connectivity and mission-critical data to harness the true potential of data for vessel optimisation and transform the future of shipping.” says Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, Head of Digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime.


For more than a decade StratumFive has been delivering leading cost-effective voyage  monitoring solutions and has now become a leading voyage intelligence provider to  more than 13,000 ships. Its global network includes the recently acquired FleetWeather  operations centre in the USA and its 50 year history of service excellence.
