Pyxisat -Cobham SATCOM’s SAILOR 900 VSAT
Norway-based maritime satcom service provider Pyxisat is showing Cobham SATCOM’s SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna on its stand (B05-38) at Nor-Shipping 2015. The new SAILOR 900 Ka has been developed initially to enable new services on Telenor Satellite Broadcasting’s (TSBc) THOR 7 satellite, which are expected to be available in November 2015.
In March 2014, Cobham SATCOM became the first antenna vendor approved to develop antenna systems for the THOR 7 satellite. With its SAILOR 800 VSAT and SAILOR 900 VSAT already approved for Telenor’s Ku-band network, Cobham SATCOM’s VSAT antenna system technology was the ideal platform to build on. The new SAILOR 900 Ka is now fully approved for the Ka-band THOR 7 network.
The Ku-band SAILOR 900 VSAT took the market by storm on its launch in 2011 due to its unique approach to technology and fast, easy deployment. These attributes make it over to the new SAILOR 900 Ka antenna system for THOR 7, either straight from the factory or via a simple to implement and cost-effective field conversion kit for the SAILOR 900 VSAT.
Like the SAILOR 900 VSAT, SAILOR 900 Ka provides uniquely simple procurement and installation in addition to top of the line RF performance. After ordering a complete system with a single part number, the antenna leaves the factory fully tested and configured, with all RF equipment installed, which simplifies logistics for the service provider and reduces the time needed on board for installation.
