Description

The latest marine antenna, the SAILOR 900 Ku-Band VSAT antenna is powerful, stable and fast. Designed with market data compiled and used in the only custom Vessel Dynamics Simulator, Thrane was able to simulate ship motion, increasing life time testing.

In addition to having a simple set up, the Sailor 900 VSAT antenna boasts excellent quality and reliability. Since the antenna is balance prior to shipment, the planning and preparation needed is minimal, and the installation time greatly reduced.

The SAILOR 900 antenna works with the FleetBroadband products and the SAILOR Satellite TV systems, as well as the leading VSAT modem units:
