1.2 m maritime VSAT antenna unveiled

Monday, 25 June, 2007


ST Electronics' satellite business unit unveiled its Agilis brand ultra compact 1.2 m stabilised C-band VSAT (very small aperture terminal) antenna, at the CommunicAsia 2007 exhibition.

The Agilis 1.2 metre maritime VSAT antenna will provide smaller seagoing vessels with an "always on' connectivity for all their communication requirements.

It provides not only secure transmission, but also a 512 Kbps inbound transmission rate and up to 2 Mbps for outbound transmission. Users can expect this cost-effective compact system to provide them with continuous onboard communications through a high-performance network.

Recognising the potential in the large and untapped market base of smaller vessels, the company developed the antenna to provide these vessels an opportunity to benefit from efficient and cost-effective broadband satellite communications.

The antenna claims to be the smallest stabilised C-band antenna available in the market currently and will fit into the confined space of smaller vessels.
