A maritime broadband radio (MBR) is developed for use in maritime applications where digital high-speed reliable communication and data transfer are crucial for efficient and safe operations.
A maritime broadband radio is not used for voice communication, but operates as an "information highway" for data information. It connects your vessel with other vessels using a high-speed and high capacity digital communication link. The radio system can be used for many purposes. You can for example use it to transfer sonar and echo sounder information between vessels. This allows you to communicate with other skippers, or you can use it to transfer information from a remotely operated or autonomous vehicle with sensors.
