A new standard - now with more features and flexibility
2013 Product Sheet
The most important thing we build is trust
The SAILOR 900 VSAT 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 over decades.
With hundreds of units shipped
worldwide in a very short time
it truly sets a new standard.
Two Antennas - One Modem
More Flexibility
SAILOR 900 VSAT 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
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 is
now 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.
A Top Performer
SAILOR 900 VSAT 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 SAILOR
900 VSAT 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 (list upon
request). Regardless of how and where
you operate the SAILOR 900 VSAT, 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.
