					Stratos Introduces StratosOceanView Web Portal for Vessel
Tracking and Global Fleet Communication Monitoring
--All fleet-position & communication data now available in one convenient web-based service--
Bethesda, Maryland (June 2, 2008) – Stratos Global Corporation, the leading global provider of advanced mobile
and fixed-site remote communications solutions, today introduced StratosOceanView(TM), a new web-based
service that provides fleet managers with global fleet communication monitoring and vessel tracking.

Available worldwide as a free service by the end of this month, StratosOceanView provides a convenient, map-
based view of each vessel’s location, heading, speed, satellite communication traffic data and contact details on a
single web page. The satellite communication traffic data includes an overview of monthly Inmarsat and Iridium
airtime costs and AmosConnect mail queue information.

StratosOceanView is ideal for ship-management companies operating fleets of all sizes, as well as ship owners and
charter companies. Position reporting is based on existing Inmarsat C DNID reporting.

Stratos is the largest supplier of mobile satellite services to the maritime industry, with communications to more
than 40,000 maritime terminals worldwide.

”StratosOceanView is much more complete than similar communication-monitoring services. It provides a wide
range of critical information in a single online interface. This eliminates the need to open multiple applications to
determine vessel positions and fleet-communications details,” said Stratos Maritime Marketing Manager Michiel

He added, “This new solution also gives fleet managers direct access to The Stratos Advantage value-added
services, which provide cost and traffic control, firewall management, data optimization, high security options,
easy VPN access, messaging services and full IP range.” The Stratos Advantage services include Stratos
Dashboard(TM), Stratos Trench(TM) firewall and AmosConnect(TM) messaging for business and crew.
