European project launches Arctic campaign to monitor space weather impact

Data exchange using VHF channels has been tested in the Baltic Sea

A new communications system using the VHF radio channels in order to secure data exchange at sea has been tested by Cobham SATCOM in the EU-funded project EfficienSea2. The system will increase the range of inexpensive, land-based, data connectivity at sea, but will also be able to connect through satellites.
