Cobham SATCOM, the market leading provider of radio and satellite communications technology for global mobility sectors, today announces the launch of the new SAILOR 800 VSAT Ku High Power, as well as the SAILOR 60 GX High Power.
SAILOR 800 VSAT Ku High Power offers the same size antenna as the established SAILOR 800 VSAT Ku system with more than three times the power, taking the total output from 6W BUC to 20W BUC. Like the standard 3-axis stabilized Ku-band antenna system with an 83 cm reflector dish, the new high-power system provides the same or better radio performance than a typical 1m antenna. Like all other SAILOR VSAT Ku antenna systems, the new SAILOR 800 High Power is ready for all global Ku band network.
SAILOR 60 GX High Power offers all the benefits of the SAILOR 60 GX system with double the power, offering 10W BUC as opposed to the standard 5W BUC. It is the smallest, lightest and most advanced antenna for the new Inmarsat Fleet Xpress maritime broadband service, and benefits from the field-proven SAILOR VSAT technology which streamlines the deployment process and maximises operational uptime. Like the original SAILOR 60 GX system, the High Power version is a single cable solution that saves ship owners time and cost through a quick and simple installation process that requires no crane or forklift. SAILOR 60 GX High Power is able to maintain signal in the toughest sea conditions, even on smaller vessels, thanks to its superior radio frequency and dynamics and has been thoroughly tested on vessels operating in the North Sea. The antenna also supports the Chinese and Russian market with BeiDou or GLONASS.
Christian Kock, VP Maritime at Cobham SATCOM said: “We’re proud to add these latest additions to the SAILOR family during Nor-Shipping week. They deliver just what the market is looking for: greater bandwidth and speed for connectivity-intensive applications, as well as providing the reliability that the long-established SAILOR brand is universally known for.”
These additions to the SAILOR family come during a fast-paced week for Cobham SATCOM at Nor-Shipping, during which it has also announced the launch of Sea Tel 2400, the world’s most versatile 2.4m multiband connectivity platform, as well as the news that Speedcast has successfully included the new, innovative Cobham 800 HP VSAT terminal as part of their Maritime and Offshore VSAT portfolio. The exclusive terminal launch includes introducing a new Cobham dual system promotion for commercial maritime vessels, adventure cruise ships, and offshore supply vessels.
