Phasor partners with OmniAccess on flat panel antenna launch

Flat panel antenna company Phasor has announced an agreement with OmniAccess to become its first commercial launch partner in the maritime broadband market, initially aimed at serving super yachts, with beta trials of the electronically steerable antenna (ESA) systems planned for early 2018 ahead of its initial commercial product introduction.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“We are delighted to expand our relationship with OmniAccess, a recognised innovator and leader in maritime communications services,” said David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor.

“Over the past several quarters, Phasor has made great strides forward and are now at the stage to prepare full Field/Beta testing. With our partner, Phasor aims to provide the best technical solution to the super yacht market; one that is very low profile (2-inches high), bandwidth efficient, aesthetically attractive, and scalable to accommodate a range of connectivity requirements.”

Phasor says that it has already conducted extended trials of its equipment demonstrating broadband duplex satellite links reaching speeds of 24 Mbps from a single 71cm equivalent aperture, using an Intelsat Epic High Throughput Satellite, whilst mounted on a moving platform.

“We are excited about the excellent test results we have achieved together with Phasor, and are delighted that we are now one important step closer to making this radical new product available to our clients in the very near future,” said Bertrand Hartman, CEO of OmniAccess.

“The Phasor Maritime Quantum Aperture offers a unique combination of low profile and high performance, whilst offering unprecedented scalability and many other advanced features. It has the potential to become a real game-changer, particularly when used to provide demanding ultra-high bandwidth services such as those provided by OmniAccess.”{/mprestriction}
