Sailor 800 Ku

SAILOR 800 VSAT is a standardized high-performance 3-axis stabilized Ku-band antenna system with an 83 cm reflector dish.

The SAILOR 800 VSAT provides the same or better radio performance than a typical 1m antenna.  These claims are supported by industry 3rd party testing, which has shown that SAILOR 800 VSAT provides the best performance for an antenna in the 80cm class.

Quick and Easy

Just like the larger, top-selling SAILOR 900 VSAT, it is quick and easy to deploy – but with a 20% smaller form factor SAILOR 800 VSAT can be used on vessels that otherwise would not consider VSAT because of the size and weight of suitable antennas.

A Top Performer

The focus of the new SAILOR 800 VSAT is on RF performance, G/T, which is >18 dB/K – a value equal to or higher than most other 1m maritime VSAT antennae performance claims – yet it’s much smaller and lighter. This performance makes the new 83cm antenna suitable for vessels that would normally specify a 1m antenna.

The unique, class-leading performance of SAILOR 800 VSAT also opens up a world of high quality, reliable communications for a wider number of vessels including workboats, fishing vessels, inland waterways and yachts, whilst providing installation flexibility for vessels of all types and size.
Lower Cost and Increased up Time The new SAILOR 800 leaves the factory
fully tested and configured, with all RF equipment pre-configured and installed.
This reduces the time needed on board for installation, resulting in lower start-up costs for users, whilst the SAILOR build quality ensures reliability and increased up time.

Smaller Form Factor

Customers who would previously have specified a 1m antenna or who may have considered VSAT too ‘big’ for their vessel, can now install a SAILOR 800 VSAT and enjoy the benefits of a 20% smaller form factor with the performance of a much larger antenna.

Two Antennas – One Modem

The SAILOR VSAT range enables you to operate two antenna systems on a single modem without the need for extra hardware to manage the feature; the integrated SAILOR VSAT antenna controllers manage the connection between satellite and modem. This simple dual antenna configuration ensures your vessel has a satellite connection even when there are obstructions in the way.

More Flexibility

New high throughput satellite (HTS) services in Ku band such as Intelsat EpicNG (and others) are making an impact, being offered by numerous maritime VSAT service providers. The SAILOR antenna systems with their unique software-controlled architecture are the ideal choice to utilize these modern spot beam services to best extent.
