SAILOR 100 GX 1m Ka-band System for Inmarsat Global Xpress®
Top Performing GX System
SAILOR 100 GX features advanced Tracking Receiver technology that enables it to verify the right satellite in less than a second. This unique feature, tried and tested in the benchmark SAILOR FleetBroadband systems, ensures quick satellite acquisition at start-up and re-acquisition of the satellite in case of temporary blockage, after bad weather or poor signal strength.
Quick and Easy to Deploy
As with all SAILOR VSAT antenna systems, SAILOR 100 GX is light and compact. It uses a single cable between antenna and below deck equipment for RF, power and data, while advanced features such as Automatic Azimuth Calibration (home flag) and Automatic Cable Calibration significantly reduce installation time further. The unique Global Xpress One Touch Commissioning feature completes the package, making SAILOR 100 GX incredibly easy to deploy
Re-Defining Maritime Broadband
With SAILOR 100 GX you have reliable access to the full range of Inmarsat Global Xpress global high throughput satellite services so you can enjoy the power of broadband for business applications, vessel operations and crew welfare.
Remote Access and Diagnostics
In order to offer the best support to system integrators, in line with our worldclass customer care, SAILOR 100 GX offers a number of features for remote access and remote diagnostic including monthly statistics logging, SNMP traps and Syslog functionality. These remote maintenance features are supported by Cobham SATCOM’s worldwide network of On-board Service Centers.
Compatibility and Testing
SAILOR 100 GX ships with the original SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU), which works directly with SAILOR 500/250 FleetBroadband to form the cornerstone of the Inmarsat Fleet Xpress service. The system is designed and tested to the highest maritime shock and vibration requirements, IEC EN 60721 to ensure reliable service and the longest possible life at sea.
