New SAILOR VSAT antenna

Cobham has announced the forthcoming launch of SAILOR 800 VSAT, a 3-axis stabilised Ku-band antenna system with an 83 cm reflector dish, which it says provides the same radio performance as competing 1m antennae.

SAILOR 800 VSAT is based on the same technology platform as Cobham’s SAILOR 900 VSAT 1m antenna. It can be used on various vessels including workboats and fishing vessels, notes Cobham.

The manufacturer says that SAILOR 800 competes in the 1m VSAT antenna market. It says that its antenna is lighter and more compact than the competition while offering equal or even higher RF performance (G/T >18 dB/K).

Cobham adds that each SAILOR 800 VSAT leaves the factory fully configured, with all RF equipment installed, which reduces the time needed on board for installation.

“SAILOR 800 VSAT is designed to out-perform competing 80-100cm antennae, despite coming in a smaller, more competitive and flexible package,” said Casper Jensen, head of maritime, Cobham SATCOM. “With SAILOR 900 VSAT as our starting point, our in-house engineers have created an 80cm class antenna that punches well above its weight.”

Cobham says that it will start shipping the new SAILOR 800 VSAT in September.
