SAILOR® 900 VSAT
A new standard – now with more features and flexibility
The SAILOR 900 VSAT is an advanced maritime stabilized Ku-band antenna system built with the same high quality and high performance that has made SAILOR the leading name in professional maritime communi- cation equipment over decades. With hundreds of units shipped worldwide in a very short time truly set a new standard.
SAILOR 900 VSAT is an easy and quick to deploy three axis stabilized VSAT antenna with the highest RF performance in the 1m antenna class. Verified by extensive Eutelsat tests, you can trust that SAILOR 900 VSAT works with any leading VSAT platforms in the market.
Every SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna system comes factory-tested, equipped ready-to- go with standardized top quality RF com- ponents (8W BUC, LNBs, OMT/diplexer) – and only one cable between antenna and below-deck. The antenna is shipped fully balanced, configured and does not need work prior to installation. This time and cost saving, plus the top RF performance make SAILOR 900 VSAT the most cost effective Ku-band antenna on the market to deploy.
The decision to install VSAT on a ship stems from the desire to have always-
on broadband connectivity at a simple flat rate fee. These networks are readily available from many providers (list upon request). Regardless of how and where you operate the SAILOR 900 VSAT, you can be confident of maximum availability because the system has several simple features to make sure your broadband connection is up, and stays up.
SAILOR 900 VSAT can operate two anten- na systems on a single modem without the need for an extra box to manage that feature. This requirement arises when the vessel needs a satellite connection even when there are obstructions in the way. The two SAILOR antenna controllers man- age the connection between satellite and modem.
During the coming years, new high throughput satellites (HTS) will come online. Most of the new HTS will operate on Ka-bands. The SAILOR 900 VSAT is now prepared for a possible conversion from Ku to Ka band operation. The result is a thoroughly updated electronics, and both a reflector dish and radome which are both tuned to both Ku- and Ka band frequencies already.
