SeaTel Sailor 900 marine internet antenna

The Sailor 800 VSAT is a high-performance Ku-Band 3-axis stabilized marine VSAT antenna system with a .83 Meter reflector
SeaTel Cobham Sailor 800 stabilized marine VSAT system

The new Sailor 800 VSAT antenna is designed to out-perform competing antennas of the same size. The Sailor 800 provides the same or better perormance than a typical 1 meter antenna. Independent testing has shown that the Sailor 800 VSAT antenna provides the best performance for any antenna in the .8 meter class.

The focus of the new Sailor 800 VSAT is on performance, with a G/T of >18 dB/K - a value higher than most 1 meter marine VSAT antennas.

Some RF packages can be field-upgraded from Ku-Band to Ka-Band, to work on Inmarsat's Global Xpress network for greater flexibility and reach, while an integrated control unit provides single box electronics that maintain the best and most efficient pointing accuracy in the maritime market.
