Sailor 900 VSAT KU-band antenna


Sailor 900 VSAT KU-band antenna

The SAILOR 900 VSAT satellite internet antenna 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 communication equipment. With hundreds of units shipped worldwide -in a very short time- truly set a new standard.

A Top Performer

The SAILOR 900 VSAT satellite internet 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 the SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna works with any leading VSAT platforms in the market.

Reduce Cost

Every SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna system comes factory-tested, equipped ready-togo with standardized top quality RF components (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.

Increase up Time

The decision to install VSAT on a ship stems from the desire to have alwayson broadband connectivity at a simple flat rate fee. These networks are readily available from many providers (see also available VSAT KU-band airtime). Regardless of how and where you operate the SAILOR 900 VSAT satellite internet antenne at sea, 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.

Two Antennas - One Modem

The SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna can operate two antenna 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 manage the connection between satellite and modem.

More Flexibility

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 satellite internet antenna is already 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.
