New NSSLGlobal whitepaper

Autonomous/Drone Shipping 

The economics, timing and communications considerations… 


The idea of autonomous shipping is fascinating, but the issues of technology, safety and regulation are still very much unresolved.  Although we may be about to see some rapid technological developments in ships and how they can be navigated remotely, the reality of sailing crewless vessels is yet to be properly defined. 


In this forward-looking whitepaper NSSLGlobal outlines its views and predictions on the requirements needed to make autonomous shipping a reality and the role of satellite communication systems in enabling crewless cargo vessels. We cover: 


  • When we’re likely to see remote-controlled sea vehicles appear
  • The economics of ‘droning’ sea-bound vehicles
  • The role VSAT communications will have in enabling ship-to-shore communications
  • The importance of cybersecurity
