Ku-band VSAT service to increase connectivity will launch this summer

Cobham SATCOM has announced a new lighter Ku-band version of its SAILOR 60cm antenna technology that will increase Ku-band VSAT services at sea.

  • Ku-band will give faster, flexible and predictable pay monthly VSAT services according to Cobham.
  • SAILOR 600 uses a small antenna but can switch between Ku-band wide beams and spot beams to increase global service availability.
  • Technology is based on lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium, meaning it can be installed without a crane in port. It will become available this summer.
