Nautilus Labs signs up as Fleet Data application provider

11 December 2019: Maritime technology company Nautilus Labs has signed an agreement to become a dedicated application provider for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

Nautilus Labs will use the Fleet Data API (Application Programming Interface) to help automate data collection as part of Nautilus Platform, a proprietary fleet optimisation UI (user interface) that provides shipping owners and operators with predictive analytics to reduce fuel consumption, improve decision making, and meet international and local environmental standards – all in real time.

Matt Heider, CEO of Nautilus Labs, said: “It’s critical that vessel owners and operators have simple, easy and consistent access to actionable information. We’re proud to partner with Inmarsat, a satcom titan that has built its maritime book of business on best-in-class voice and data solutions.

Cost-saving insights

“Together, we’ll help connect more clients with continuous, cost-saving fleet optimisation insights on Nautilus Platform – for the teams at sea and on shore.”

Developed by Inmarsat and made commercially available earlier this year, Fleet Data collects signals from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database equipped with a dashboard and an API.

Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, Head of Digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime, said: “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as Nautilus Labs, a company we covered in our recent Trade 2.0 report on the rise of maritime start-ups.

“This tie-up will allow ship operators and fleet managers to optimise their entire fuel process and reduce unnecessary costs and meet decarbonisation targets. This is all achieved through the Nautilus Labs application on Fleet Data and via a secure platform that is fully scalable, fleet-wide and now commercially available on both Fleet Xpress and FleetBroadband.”
