SEASAT wins Esvagt VSAT contract
SEASAT was awarded the contract on the delivery of Satellite Broadband Service for more than 40 Esvagt Vessels.
"ESVAGT har arbejdet sammen med Seasat igennem mange år, og vi sætter stor pris på deres høje servicegrad og store fleksibilitet. Vi kan altid regne med at Seasat stiller op, hvis der opstår et akut behov for hjælp, uanset hvor i verden vi har brug for deres kompetencer. Da ESVAGT i foråret sendte vores VSAT løsning i udbud, viste det sig at Seasat stillede med det bedste løsningsforslag.
På baggrund af vore særdeles gode erfaringer med Seasat, havde vi ingen betænkeligheder ved igen at vælge Seasat som VSAT leverandør.
Seasat levede til fulde op til de høje forventninger.
Udrulningen af den nye VSAT løsning blev planlagt og gennemført på få uger, og de problemer der opstod under vejs blev løst på rekordtid.
Kvaliteten af den service Seasat leverer er altid i orden,
og det er en meget vigtigt parameter for vores forretning."
Lars Knudsen, Esvagt, Head of IT

High power Ku band system from Cobham
Cobham SATCOM will be introducing a new SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power system during June of 2016.
This product is a new variant of the successful SAILOR 900 VSAT and is designed to offer higher data services, also on the uplink direction.
It features the same electronics and software as all other SAILOR VSAT products and in order to support the new fully integrated 20W BUC we are shipping the new SAILOR Antenna Control Unit with built-in power supply. This new BUC is no ordinary BUC - it has been specially designed by Cobham SATCOM RF engineers. This new product will be offered either as a complete system - or as an upgrade to an existing SAILOR 900B VSAT - the new components does not require re-balancing of the antenna. Environmental specifications will not be affected - a SAILOR 900 VSAT High Power system can be deployed in warm regions without requiring air conditioning.
Conversion Kits will be offered at a later stage.
Cobham SATCOM has introduced the option of Matching Radomes across the product lines of Sea Tel Satellite TV Systems and the Sea Tel 4009-91 VSAT Product.
This means that the Sea Tel 4009-91 VSAT System now can be installed into either a Sea Tel 100 or a Sea Tel 120 TVRO radome, in order to make a dual installation of both a VSAT and a TVRO system look exactly the same.
Please do not hesitate to call us for further information.
