Cobham SATCOM... A Stabilizing Endeavor (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Ship Equip, a long standing Cobham dealer since 1996, has placed the largest single quantity order ever received for the company's Sea Tel 09 series antennas.

The xx09 series marine stabilized antenna system is designed for broadband connectivity in some of the most adverse maritime operation, offering lowest total cost of ownership and is a great fit on any maritime vessel operating in practically any sea states. The antenna will be deployed across various applications, such as fisheries, support vessels, commercial shipping, and offshore industries, and fits well within Ship Equip’s SEVSAT® branded network. Available in 40 inch (100cm), 50 inch (125cm), and 60 inch (150 cm) reflector sizes, the XX09 is configured to be compatible with all Ku-band frequencies and is the only maritime antenna that meets IEC 60721, the industry leading specification. It also meets other stringent design specifications, such as EN 60945, MIL STD 461, MIL STD 167-1 and IEC 60950. The xx09 will run with the Sea Tel DAC (digital antenna controller), along with the latest generation electronics and software. The XX09 system is fully enabled to work with remote management devices to provide remote access, control and management of the system. The antenna will also be equipped with the proven Sea Tel stabilization system, isolating the antenna system from ship’s motion.

The XX09 is available both in co-polarization configuration for global customers and cross polarization configuration for regional customers. Cobham SATCOM’s Sea Tel range was founded in 1978, and is now one of the world's leading ranges of marine stabilized antenna systems for satellite communications and satellite television at sea. Cobham SATCOM has 30 years of marine experience and is dedicated to constant improvement through innovation and design enhancement. The antennas range from 14 inches to 14 feet, the widest range of any maritime antenna manufacturer and enable connectivity in the harshest environment on the planet across all maritime segments.
