Ka-band VSAT from Orbit

ORBIT Communication Systems has launched two maritime stabilised VSAT platforms which it says will support future Ka-band services.

OceanTRx 4 and OceanTRx7 both offer configurations in multiband frequencies, such as Ku- and Ka-band, using a BUC (Block upconverter).

The 1.15m antenna, OceanTRx 4, also supports X-band, while the 2.2m antenna, OceanTRx 7, also supports C-band.

The company notes that the larger antenna, with its 2.7m radome, is still small enough to be shipped as a fully assembled unit in a standard 20-foot container.

Both products share common electronic field-replaceable units (FRUs).

“OceanTRx series brings the maritime world into the future,” said Ofer Greenberger, ORBIT's CEO.

“Featuring a variety of configurations, frequencies and power capabilities, the platforms address a wide range of maritime markets, from oil & gas to cruise, commercial shipping, and naval.”

“As we enter the Ka‐band age, OceanTRx is the ultimate solution for maritime satellite communications enabling smooth migration to future high‐speed Ka- services for the entire Ka- range.”
