Cobham SAILOR 900 VSAT
New Universal ACU, GNSS module and software features
The Cobham SAILOR 900 VSAT is an advanced maritime stabilized Ku-band antenna system built with the same high quality and high performance that has made SAILOR the leading name in professional maritime communication equipment over decades. With hundreds of units shipped worldwide in a very short time truly set a new standard.
A Top Performer
SAILOR 900 VSAT is an easy and quick to deploy three axis stabilized VSAT antenna with the highest RF performance in the 1m antenna class. Verified by extensive Eutelsat tests, you can trust that SAILOR 900 VSAT works with any leading VSAT platforms in the market.
Every SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna system comes factory-tested, equipped ready-togo with standardized top quality RF components (8W BUC, LNBs, OMT/diplexer) and only one cable between antenna and below-deck. The antenna is shipped fully balanced, configured and does not need work prior to installation. This time and cost saving, plus the top RF performance make SAILOR 900 VSAT the most cost effective Ku-band antenna on the market to deploy.
Increase up Time
The decision to install VSAT on a ship stems from the desire to have alwayson broadband connectivity at a simple flat rate fee. These networks are readily available from many providers (list upon request). Regardless of how and where you operate the SAILOR 900 VSAT, you can be confident of maximum availability because the system has several simple features to make sure your broadband connection is up, and stays up.
Two Antennas – One Modem
SAILOR 900 VSAT can operate two antenna systems on a single modem without the need for an extra box to manage that feature. This requirement arises when the vessel needs a satellite connection even when there are obstructions in the way. The two SAILOR antenna controllers manage the connection between satellite and modem.
New high throughput satellite (HTS) services in Ku band such as Intelsat EpicNG (and others) are making an impact, being offered by numerous maritime VSAT service providers. The SAILOR antenna systems with their unique software-controlled architecture are the ideal choice to utilize these modern spot beam services to best extent. Alternatively, the SAILOR 900 VSAT Ku could be converted from Ku to Ka band to operate on Ka band HTS satellites, such as Inmarsat GX and Telenor Thor7.
