Sailor 900 VSAT KA-band antenna


Sailor 900 VSAT KA-band antenna

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band antenna is an advanced 3-axis stabilized satellite internet antenna system designed for reception of internet at sea via the Telenor THOR 7 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.

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band antenna is a direct development from the successful SAILOR 900 VSAT KU-band antenna system, which has created a new industry standard through innovative design for ease-of-use, quick deployment and reliable operation.

The top performing Ka system

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band antenna is built to withstand the toughest sea conditions and is probably the fastest tracking antenna with its superior dynamic performance in all axes; roll, pitch and yaw. Combined with tracking performance it is feasible to install the antenna even on smaller vessels which are more affected by rougher sea.

Quick & Easy to deploy

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band antenna system uses a single cable between antenna and below deck equipment for RF, power and data, while advanced features such as Automatic Azimuth Calibration and Automatic Cable Calibration significantly reduce installation time further. The combination of all these unique features makes it possible to do a ‘one touch commissioning’ without the need for line-up or CPi, making the SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka=ban satellite internet antenna incredibly easy to deploy.

Re-defining maritime broadband

With the SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band and the iDirect X7 Satellite Router you have access to the Telenor THOR 7 high throughput satellite services, so you can enjoy the power of broadband for business applications, vessel operations and crew welfare.

Remote access and diagnostics

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band offers a number of features for remote access and remote diagnostic including monthly statistics logging, SNMP traps, Syslog functionality and built-in e-mail clients that automatically can email historical logging of system performance. These remote maintenance features gives the opportunity to offer the best possible support to your customers.

Built for the high seas

The SAILOR 900 VSAT Ka-band satellite internet antenna is designed and tested to the highest maritime shock and vibration requirements, IEC EN 60721, to ensure reliable service and prolonged life at sea.
