“No matter where in the world you sail, you can now take advantage of any Ku-band network, including the latest high throughput satellite networks (such as Intelsat’s EpicNG), to enable business-critical applications and drive operational efficiency.” ©
The design decision for new communications product was to go with a smaller antenna than company typically produced. This year COBHAM released new SAILOR 600 VSAT Ka antenna which is the light, small and advanced 3-axis stabilized Ka-band system suits for the THOR 7 satellite network from Telenor Satellite.
Its unique construction weighs just 35 kg and confirms SAILOR VSAT technology simplify the deployment process and maximizes operational uptime. SAILOR 600 VSAT able to bring it on board by hand, making it really appropriate for installations where no lifting gears are available.
With the rise of new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) solutions, SAILOR 600 VSAT is the most powerful 60cm class antenna ever built. Running with HTS, it can produce a stable, high throughput link to enable communication for any vessel in any Ku-band coverage.
SAILOR units are tested in the North Sea using true ship motion data in Advanced Dynamic Simulator for antennas. This unique combination gives the conviction that SAILOR antennas will produce the highest availability of service on any vessel type.
The SAILOR VSAT Technology platform allows two SAILOR 600 VSAT systems to be controlled on a single subscription, on a single modem, making it easier and less costly to ensure high availability of service. Uniquely, the advanced antenna controllers manage the connection between satellite and router automatically, without the need for a costly and complicated RF interface unit.
