Harris CapRock agrees Phasor deal for flat VSAT antennas for cruise market

Flat panel satellite antenna company Phasor has announced a partnership with Harris CapRock Communications to develop an electronically-steerable antenna (ESA) terminal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The companies will co-develop a maritime terminal based on Phasor’s ESA technology that will support high throughput (HTS) Ku-band satellite communications, to be included as part of Harris CapRock’s managed services offering.

Harris CapRock will hold special distribution rights for the terminal in the cruise market as a result.

“At Harris CapRock, we have historically been early adopters of emerging technologies that are well-matched to help us exceed our customers’ expectations for efficiency, flexibility and reliability,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock.

“Widely acknowledged for its innovative antenna design, Phasor makes a smart partner for driving our momentum forward by developing and bringing the world’s first flat panel, phased array antenna communications solution for the cruise market.”

The Phasor antenna is solid-state, with no moving parts, so satellite signals are tracked electronically, and the company says that the terminal can match the performance of a 2.4m antenna dish.

“Harris CapRock’s market expertise and reputation are founded on reliability and we are very pleased to partner with them to address the growing mobile broadband needs of the cruise sector,” said David Helfgott, CEO of Phasor.

“Phasor’s game-changing, electronically steerable antenna (ESA) technology provides greater capability, flexibility and performance than existing systems today. Together we will leverage our strengths to provide a maritime terminal to ensure the delivery of reliable broadband communications to the cruise market.”{/mprestriction}
