Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) launch partner Cobham SATCOM will show that not all antennas for the forthcoming Inmarsat Ka-band VSAT HTS services are the same, as it brings its Type Approved SAILOR 100 GX terminal to Satellite 2015 in Washington DC this week (booth #7025).
SAILOR 100 GX is designed to the same quality and reliability ethos that resulted in 40,000 SAILOR FleetBroadband terminals and thousands of SAILOR and Sea Tel VSAT being sold in the maritime sector. Additionally, it features unique technology for satellite acquisition not available in competing GX terminals.
SAILOR 100 GX ships with the new SAILOR Ka-band antenna controller and the SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU), which works seamlessly with SAILOR 500 and 250 FleetBroadband systems and the Network Service Device. This forms the cornerstone of the Inmarsat FleetBroadband Xtra service going live across Europe and the Indian Ocean soon and ultimately, the full Fleet Xpress service offering high-throughput capabilities to ships worldwide.
