Surfing the Starlink tidal wave.

Starlink moves maritime into the new age.

The maritime industry has long been accustomed to sub-par internet speeds due to current technology restraints available at sea.

The maritime industry has long been accustomed to sub-par internet speeds due to current technology restraints available at sea. Starlink has managed to lift those technology restraints by offering its fast internet service at an affordable price, catching the attention of all technology enthusiasts, especially those at sea or in rural areas.

With our data demand increasing daily, Starlink has arrived at the right time to coincide with streaming services to carry the additional bandwidth load needed in today's age and makes cloud and online services more appealing to the maritime world.

Those who have, or will, install the RV or maritime system stand to benefit from fast internet connections. Charter guests on a multi-million-dollar superyacht will no longer have to complain about the slow internet! Or will they? Some experts are sceptical of Starlink's stability and ability to deliver on its promises, preferring to look at solutions like ViaSat, boasting speeds over 100 MBps or Oneweb's LEO technology offer, which guarantees a certain amount of bandwidth (CIR). What do you think?

SpaceX at a glance

SpaceX has taken the space world by storm as Elon Musk plans to dominate the world of space by building a city on Mars and a shuttle service to the Moon! You can find more information about the first person to sign up for the Moon journey here. SpaceX now has over 3009 Starlink satellites functioning in orbit and is continually adding more, with up to 53 being launched per Falcon 9 flight. The Falcon 9 is the first orbital rocket to challenge space capabilities.

Falcon 9

Falcon 9 is a reusable, two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of people and payloads into the Earth's orbit and beyond. Standing over 70m tall, 3.7m in diameter and 549.054kg in mass, it’s the world's first orbital class reusable rocket. One SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has capacity for up to 60 satellites, and the reusable aspect allows SpaceX to refly the most expensive parts of the rocket, driving down the cost to access space. The Falcon 9 is the most active rocket today. At the time of writing, it boasts a remarkable 195 launches, 153 landings and 132 re-launches.

Falcon Heavy

Falcon Heavy is the big brother to Falcon 9, consisting of three reuseable engine cores, making it one of the most powerful rockets currently in operation. It has a lift-off thrust of over five million pounds, equivalent to the combined thrusting power of eighteen 747 jetliners. This makes it capable of carrying a fully loaded 737 jetliner into orbit, complete with passengers, luggage and fuel. Falcon Heavy is in its early stages compared to the Falcon 9, as you will see from the stats but to date it has achieved four launches, nine landings and four re-launches.

The vast majority of all missions have been to deploy more small satellites, demonstrating SpaceX's commitment to building out its satellite mega constellation Starlink. Incredibly, SpaceX is already responsible for more than 40 per cent of all active satellites in orbit around Earth, and thousands more Starlink satellites will be launched into orbit before their network is complete.

Starlink at a glance

Starlink is a global communications service provider headquartered in the United States with over one million subscribers. The internet service has been a game-changer to the aviation and cruise industries, and provides critical communication throughout Ukraine. Starlinks is present in over 160 countries, and its platform will be accessible from almost any corner of the Earth once complete. Starlinks continues to deploy small satellites to build its mega LEO constellation at an altitude of 340 miles (550 km), aiming for a total of 42,000 small satellites to complete its constellation to cover every corner of the planet.
