SGM-Tech is specialized in communication solutions towards seismic industries, coast guard and more.


Based on this, we could benefit from a cooperation based on the new regulation from the Norwegian government regarding ERS and VMS. Using SGM-Tech cutting-edge expertise  within data compression and communication it was easy to see the benefit to cooperate with SGM-Tech, who is an Iridium development partner, to deliver VMS and ERS messages based on a 100% Iridium satellite coverage to competitive prices.
