EXPLORER 7100GX: Vehicle Mount Auto-Acquire Antenna - DISCONTINUED



The EXPLORER 7100GX from Cobham enables users to access the Inmarsat Global Xpress® ka-band network. This auto-acquire, drive-away antenna system allows personnel with little satellite experience to easily configure and operate this terminal enabling the user to access any broadband application over satellite.

EXPLORER 7100GX provides reliable, hassle-free operation with the minimum amount of regular maintenance. This is achieved through the use of an industry-leading, zero-backlash Az/El cable drive and precision polarisation drive, which, combined with Cobham’s commitment to high quality manufacturing, results in high reliability.

The EXPLORER 7100GX antenna ensures the simplicity and convenience of one-touch control for hassle-free configuration and superior portability. The controller has built-in RF Tuner, Compass, GPS, GLONASS and inclined orbit satellite tracking for precise and convenient drive-away VSAT operations.

EXPLORER 7100GX’s satellite auto-acquisition can easily be configured and remotely monitored via the user-friendly, graphical user interface (GUI) on a standard web browser - no need for a separate display.

The compact, affordable, low-profile EXPLORER 7100GX motorised antenna can be swiftly mounted onto virtually any vehicle for convenience and adaptability. The system features a versatile mounting pallet with an optional roof rack or rail interface for easy installation on a variety of smaller vehicles including SUVs and vans.
