In these dark times, when good news is scarce, science always pushes the boundaries and offers hope…
The world record set by Engineer Arnaud Disant and his team in 2018 has now been officially verified: offshore WiFi transmission of 19.4 nautical miles off Cork harbour, “The longest ever attempted transmission between a vessel offshore and a lighthouse on a distant shore, without using satellite communication of cellular data like 3G or 4G…”
I am proud to have been a witness to the achievement of this record. A scientific paper will soon be published in the MTS (Marine Technology Society) Journal.
Congratulations to Arnaud! Your record is fantastic news for marine data collection.
