Satcube announces satcom antenna development

Gothenburg-based Satcube AB reports that it is in the process of developing a new range of maritime satcom antennas, which it says will be aimed at “the next generation of satellite capacity.”

The platform features an active dampening system, to eliminate shocks and vibrations and reduce the number of system failures.

"These satellite terminals need to be more accurate and demonstrate greater efficiency than the old L-band system terminals they replace," said Jakob Kallmér, Satcube CEO.

"Availability and robustness requirements continue to be extensive. However, customers aren't prepared to pay much more for the hardware. That's why you need to take a new approach when developing this type of terminal."

"We drew inspiration from the automotive industry, incorporating simple, inexpensive components without stretching the limits of function or quality. This approach has resulted in a number of innovations for which we have submitted patent applications."

Satcube says it plans to release a beta version of the system this winter to test the concept in the North Sea. It is expected that a fully industrialised product will be available by mid-2013.
