Cobham adds high power variant for FX system

Cobham SATCOM has introduced its new SAILOR 100 GX HP (High Power) Fleet Xpress, an updated version of its existing SAILOR 100 GX antenna system adapted for Inmarsat’s newly launched high data rate plans packages on Fleet Xpress.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new 1 metre, 3-axis stabilised Ka-band user terminal delivers twice the RF power of the standard unit, and includes an integrated 10W GaN amplifier, which increases upload speeds and facilitates a more reliable link to the GX satellites.

The SAILOR 100 GX HP system is also compatible with Cobham SATCOM’s GX Antenna Diversity Solution, used to manage operation of two Ka-band antennas from a single GX modem unit, with FleetBroadband integrated, on a single Fleet Xpress subscription.

Inmarsat type approval for the unit is currently pending, with the first shipments expected to follow in October 2018.

“The SAILOR 100 GX High Power system demonstrates the deep commitment we have to our partners and to enabling access to new, high value markets through close collaboration,” said Jens Ewerling, director, maritime broadband, Cobham SATCOM.

“More than that, however, it represents our focus towards ongoing development of the communications foundation that drives digitalisation and smart shipping. In this context, when it comes to connectivity every minute matters, and SAILOR 100 GX High Power allows users to maximise their investment in Fleet Xpress.”{/mprestriction}
