Marine satellite VSAT internet on many ships is seen as essential. But, like any technology, it can occasionally let you down. I thought I would share the process of diagnosing and fixing a potentially show-stopping fault on one of our customer’s ships recently, and what can be done to make sure a $10 part doesn't ruin your day at sea.

One of the best things about working at Acutec Systems is our connection with the huge range of diverse and fascinating maritime projects our customers are involved with.

Good things come in threes. Is that how the saying goes? One of our talented (and lucky) marine VSAT engineers completed three back-to-back VSAT service visits in the island paradise of Bora Bora in French Polynesia this week.
