SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power

SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power

Innovative Cobham developed technology enables VSAT service providers to deliver even higher uplink bandwidths


The advanced SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power enables end-users to leverage the power of digitalisation in the maritime industry for safer, more efficient operations and improved crew communication facilities.

Higher throughput

The growing need for higher data throughput on the uplink to satellites has triggered demand for antenna systems with higher power RF performance. SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power meets this demand with perfect integration of a high power 20W Block Up Converter (BUC). The new Cobham designed 20W also ensures reliable operation in warm, humid climates without the need for air conditioning systems in the antenna, despite the higher radiated power.

Flexible technology

Updated electronics, a precision 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. It is also easy to install. It is delivered factory-tested, balanced and ready-to-go with standardised top quality RF and the requirement for only one cable between antenna and below-deck.

Simple migration

All SAILOR Ku-Band VSAT antennas have been tested to work on High Throughput Satellite (HTS) services, including Intelsat’s EpicNG. Using specially developed SAILOR Conversion Kits, SAILOR 900 VSAT customers can move to SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power and additionally from SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power to SAILOR 100 GX, enabling a cost-effective migration path to alternative satellite services.

Dual antennas

SAILOR VSAT technology makes it easier and less costly to ensure high availability of service using a set-up for Dual Antenna Operation, because the antenna controllers manage the connection between satellite and satellite router automatically, on a single modem without the need for additional hardware.
