SAILOR 800: Ku-Band VSAT Antenna



SAILOR 800 from Cobham SATCOM is a standardised high-performance 3-axis stabilised Ku-band antenna, offering the superb build quality and high reliability that customers expect from a SAILOR product.

Quick and Easy
Just like the larger, top-selling SAILOR 900 VSAT, it is quick and easy to deploy.

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.

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
SAILOR 800 VSAT leaves the factory fully tested and configured, with all RF equipment pre-configured and installed reducing 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.
