SAILOR 60 GX: Ka-band VSAT Global Xpress System



The SAILOR 60 GX is simple to install, setup, operate and commission, even by a non-specialist technician. The use of Ethernet over Coax (EOC) allows for four times the length over traditional coax only systems, so installation flexibility is high. It is easily integrated with SAILOR FleetBroadband to create a redundant, highly reliable network with the quality and coverage needed to perform in today’s maritime environment. SAILOR 60 GX also uses the innovative Cobham SATCOM IMA software platform, helping to make it ready to face the communications needs of the maritime market in the 21st century.

SAILOR 60 GX Ka-Band VSAT Antenna is part of ASTs VSAT solution and utilises the Inmarsat Global Xpress satellite network.
