Critical Connectivity with Dual FleetBroadband Antenna

Cobham SATCOM has launched a SAILOR FleetBroadband Dual Antenna solution to prevent critical data and voice communications being interrupted by obstructions.



The SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband is designed for vessels and platforms with demanding requirements for connectivity. It meets the critical needs for voice and data communication of maritime and offshore professionals globally. It provides extensive functionality including full access to bandwidth IP applications, broadband internet/intranet, e-mail, secure VPN and nine simultaneous voice lines


The critical connectivity solution consists of two SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband systems and a Dual Antenna Control Unit (DACU), which can automatically switch between antennas without loss of connectivity.


With the ability to position two antennas at different locations, vessels avoid any problems should a single antenna become obstructed by superstructure, masts, rigging or other equipment.



Specialist vessels

The solution is targeted at specialist vessels using critical IP applications over FleetBroadband, where loss of connectivity could significantly affect the outcome of a costly or hazardous operation. If the active antenna loses sight to the satellite, the back-up will come on line to ensure continuous connectivity. The two antennas work as a single system, with the same IP address, a single SIM card and one monthly bill.




Proven reliability

“SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband is the market-leading Inmarsat FleetBroadband solution, so we are keen to offer its proven reliability and user-friendliness in a dual solution configuration for vessels where continuous connectivity is vital to operational safety and efficiency,” said Casper Jensen, Vice-President of Cobham SATCOM’s maritime business.



“Whilst developing a technically advanced approach, we have also ensured our solution has only minimal extra hardware costs, in order to enable as many vessels to take advantage of it as possible.”
