The popular navigation communication system mazu and mSeries now works with Raymarine Axiom MFDs allowing vessel operators to access real-time satellite data.

The partnership between Skymate and Raymarine means that mazu features like email and SMS texts, SOS transponding, weather forecasts and more, can also be used with the mazu iPad app which provides users with an enhanced dashboard.

“We are excited to bring mazu’s global satellite data communication services to our LightHouse Apps so Raymarine Axiom users can send messages, receive weather forecast, and monitor their vessel from anywhere in the world,” said Grégoire Outters Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime.

Staying connected

mazu gives boaters access to reliable global satellite connectivity using the Iridium network.

Easy DIY installation means mazu’s mSeries system can be fitted on any type of vessel. Once the system is installed it connects wirelessly to the chosen displays on board.

Operators can connect at the helm with their MFD and still use the mazu app or browser interface on a different device in another area of vessel. For vessels with a flybridge or multiple MFD’s, mazu can connect to both devices without running any wires.

Based in Reston, Virginia mazu/SkyMate is a technology company that specialises in using advanced engineering to simplify satellite communications. It has developed proprietary software that allows for sophisticated satellite signal compression that maximizes data transfer while keeping air time costs down.

Raymarine is a global provider of high performance marine electronics for the recreational boating and light commercial marine markets and a division of FLIR Systems.
