Inmarsat operates a global satellite system that is used by independent service providers to offer a range of communications services for customers on the move or in remote locations. It was established in 1979, and commenced operations in 1982. Inmarsat was reorganised from an intergovernmental ‘treaty’ organisation to a private company in 1999. Its satellite system is used by more than 170 countries for maritime, aeronautical and land mobile applications. It was established principally to improve maritime communications and safety, but it has since expanded into land, mobile and aeronautical communications. It has recently changed hands a few times.
