Sailor 100 GX VSAT KA-band antenna


Sailor 100 GX VSAT KA-band antenna

The SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna is an advanced 3-axis stabilized Ka-band antenna system, designed for the Inmarsat Global Xpress® satellite network. It is built to the same high quality and high performance that has made SAILOR the leading name in professional maritime communication equipment over decades.

The top performing GX system

The SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna features advanced Tracking Receiver technology that enables it to verify the right satellite in less than a second. This unique feature, tried and tested in the benchmark SAILOR FleetBroadband systems, ensures quick satellite acquisition at start-up and re-acquisition of the satellite in case of temporary blockage, after bad weather or poor signal strength.

Quick & Easy to deploy

As with all SAILOR VSAT antenna systems, the SAILOR 100 GX antenna is light and compact. It uses a single cable between antenna and Below Deck Equipment (BDE) for RF, power and data, while advanced features such as Automatic Azimuth Calibration (home flag) and Automatic Cable Calibration significantly reduce installation time further.The unique Global Xpress One Touch Commissioning feature completes the package, making the SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna incredibly easy to deploy.

Re-defining maritime broadband

With the SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna you have reliable access to the full range of Inmarsat Global Xpress global high throughput satellite services, so you can enjoy the power of broadband for business applications, vessel operations and crew welfare.

Remote access and diagnostics

In order to offer the best support to system integrators, in line with our worldclass customer care, the SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna offers a number of features for remote access and remote diagnostic including monthly statistics logging, SNMP traps and Syslog functionality. These remote maintenance features are supported by Cobham SATCOM’s worldwide network of On-board Service Centers.

Compatibility and testing

The SAILOR 100 GX VSAT antenna ships with the original SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU), which works directly with SAILOR 500/250 FleetBroadband to form the cornerstone of the Inmarsat Fleet Xpress service. The system is designed and tested to the highest maritime shock and vibration requirements, IEC EN 60721, to ensure reliable service and the longest possible life at sea.
