To facilitate the mobile users on ships for communication effectively in the offshore areas at sea, this paper proposes an integrated wireless networking system that is composed of mobile ad hoc network, cellular mobile communication network, and satellite mobile network. The overall system architecture and relevant network elements of the proposed system are described. The proposed system can help to reduce the network deployment cost and calling charge, support more terminal types, and provide the mobile users richer maritime services.
