CohuHD Costar: Clear Visibility Even in Harsh Operating Environments

Top 10 Maritime Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

With the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution, the maritime world is slowly coming to terms. An industry that has originally resisted or ignored technology is forced to rethink its stand. The adoption of technology in the maritime space is driven primarily by two factors – the desire to become more cost-effective and the looming shortage of traditional skills. Both of these factors have the potential to have a severe and lasting impact on Maritime sector, and technology is considered as a panacea for the same.

Digitalization and the use of data are having a significant impact on shipping. Ships have become sophisticated sensor hubs and generators of data, generating and transmitting information in real-time, often from anywhere. Around the same time, advancements in satellite communications are increasing connectivity, allowing for massive increases in data volumes transmitted at ever lower costs. New cloud-based technologies, such as big data platforms and digital twin technology are beginning to have an intense impact on how the industry manages information and how vessels and their components are designed, built, and tested. With such technologies reshaping the maritime industry, business leaders are seeking appropriate marine tech solution providers who incorporate robust technologies pertaining to the company goals. In order to help those companies who struggle in this space, Aerospace and Defense Review has compiled a list of the leading Maritime solution providers that help clients in tackling the various challenges that prevail in the maritime sector, today.

We now present to you Aerospace and Defense Review’s “Top 10 Maritime Consulting/ Service Companies - 2020.”
