SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power Product Sheet

The standard - now with higher power for uplinks
Product Sheet
The most important thing we build is trust
The SAILOR 900 VSAT High
Power is a direct evolution of
the innovative SAILOR 900 VSAT
platform, which has become a
benchmark for quality and high
Focus on higher return links
While one metre Ku-band antennas with
8W RF configurations are now a de-facto
standard for global Ku-band networks, the
ever increasing demand for more bandwidth and higher data throughput also
for the uplink to the satellite has triggered
demand for antenna systems with higher
RF power.
the connection to the VSAT modem. The
two SAILOR antenna controllers manage
the connection between satellite and
satellite router fully automatically and the
switch-over happens in just 20 milliseconds.
project demand it. State-of-the-art electronics, and a reflector dish and radome
tuned for optimum performance on both
Ku- and Ka-band frequencies ensure that
SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power is an incredibly flexible solution.
More Power – More Flexibility
New Ku-band and Ka-band high throughput satellites (HTS) are coming online. All
SAILOR Ku-Band VSAT has been tested to
work on HTS services, including Intelsat’s
EpicNG. Additionally, even with its unique
higher power BUC, the SAILOR 900 VSAT
High Power is prepared for conversion
from Ku- to Ka-band operation should the
A competitive package
To meet the challenge, Cobham SATCOM
has employed its proven engineering
method to design and specify a new 20W
extended frequency BUC, with focus on
performance and reliability. Because it is
an in-house design, Cobham SATCOM has
ensured that all environmental challenges
are met. With this advanced new BUC, the
SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power is verified
to provide reliable operation downlink and
uplink even in regions with high temperatures.
Two Antennas, One Subscription
Service Level Agreements (SLA) are a
crucial aspect of maritime IT and communication solutions. In order to meet the
demand for high SLAs, especially when
there are obstructions on the ship that
cannot be overcome by setting up blocking zones, satcom service providers sometimes install two antennas. The SAILOR
Ku-Band VSAT platform makes this easier
and less costly as it can operate two
antenna systems on a single modem without the need for an extra box to manage
