About Sternula

Building world's largest maritime telecom network

At Sternula, we are proud to enable safety at sea and to help shipping companies save costs and reduce pollution. We are leading the implementation of AIS 2.0/VDES to become world’s largest maritime telecom network in terms of connected users. We take an active role together with global maritime stakeholders to standardize VDES under IALA, IMO, and ITU.

The name

The company name, Sternula, is also the latin name of the sea bird with the common name “little tern”. Terns are known to be world’s most migratory birds, travelling thousands of kilometers North and South – just like our satellites in Polar orbit.
