Safety of life Network

Kordia is responsible for operating and monitoring the network that provides critical safety of life communications for almost a quarter of the world’s oceans.

Safety of life

Where reliability is a matter of life and death

You are responsible for providing crucial safety of life services for your territory – whether that be in the air, on the ground or at sea. If a disaster or emergency situation was to strike, you know that seconds count. You also know the technology that your vital communication and tracking services run on has to be reliable, secure and trusted by the teams using it. That’s where Kordia comes in.

Kordia has a solid reputation for the provision and management of safety of life at sea (SOLAS) in Australia and New Zealand. Testament to this  - we have designed and built, and we operate HF and VHF networks that cover nearly a quarter of the world’s oceans – an area that spans more than 90 million square kilometres.  When you send a maritime distress in the majority of the Australasian Maritime region – it’s Kordia that answers the call!

Kordia has supported Coastguard New Zealand's significant technological evolution, which included improving the quality of the VHF network through site infrastructure, monitoring and support. This long-term service delivery partnership has enabled our volunteers to better serve their communities and allow greater synergy with our partners at Maritime New Zealand.
