SAILOR 60 GX VSAT
The smallest (60 cm), lightest and most advanced antenna for the new Inmarsat Fleet Xpress maritime broadband service (Ka-band).
Though SAILOR 60 GX VSAT is a super light antenna, it has the ruggedness and reliability required of a professional maritime stabilised antenna system. Additionally, the low weight and compact form factor make it possible for smaller vessels to benefit from VSAT connectivity, when before it may not have been an option due to space available or difficulties and costs associated with the installation of larger, heavier antennas.
SAILOR 60 GX VSAT is built to withstand the toughest sea conditions and still deliver high bandwidth connectivity on the Fleet Xpress service. It is the fastest tracking antenna available in this size, with superior dynamic performance in all axes; roll, pitch and yaw. This high performance means that vessels more affected by rough seas can make the most of Global Xpress, as SAILOR 60 GX VSAT can maintain a link even in extreme conditions.
Together, SAILOR GX and the legendary SAILOR FleetBroadband make Inmarsat Fleet Xpress. This combination of high throughput Ka-band/GX and reliable L-band/ FB provide a step-change in vessel and fleet operation by enabling access to a new wave of IT applications that support efficiency and reliability of equipment and processes on board. The GX part of Fleet Xpress delivers high throughput connectivity, while SAILOR 60 GX VSAT ensures that it is always available on board so vessels can operate smarter through harnessing the power of connected maritime IT and technology.
SAILOR 60 GX VSAT is delivered ready to install, with the included SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU) and SAILOR Antenna Control Unit (ACU) ensuring quality and reliability throughout the system. Installation is easy, thanks to a wealth of features and design details unique to the SAILOR VSAT technology platform. For instance, it features a single cable between antenna and below deck equipment for RF, power and data, while Automatic Azimuth Calibration and Automatic Cable Calibration enable unique ‘one touch commissioning’. It also features Dynamic Motor Brakes inside the antenna, removing the requirement for mechanical brake straps whilst ensuring the antenna is kept in balance in no-power situations, at sea or during transport.
We can assess you with the VSAT Service that is best for your vessel, taking into account the navigation zone and the band width and speed required for the data
The VSAT rates consist of:
- Monthly fee for the data flat rate.
- Invoicing of the VoIP Calls (inferior rates to those of other Satellite systems)
