e-Distribution

Novaco employ alternative digital technologies to distribute products and services over-the-air. Data can be sent directly to ships by email, satellite broadcast or  FTP connection.

 

Satellitesatellite

The Novaco Broadcast Service was borne out of the belief that satellite broadcasting remains the most cost effective way of transporting large volumes of data from shore to ships.

Data is currently broadcast from geostationary satellites operating at 21°E and 105°E. Repeat broadcasts and substantial coverage ensure that there is ample opportunity to receive all required updates over the air. Each weekly edition of Admiralty NMs is broadcast 28 times over a period of 8 weeks.

Plans to deploy the services of an orbiting satellite are well underway and should very soon augment Novaco's delivery capability further.
