A future-proof GX-R2 platform
Integrating the best of SAILOR VSAT Technology and SAILOR XTR™, the new cutting-edge technology platform at the heart of all next generation SAILOR antenna systems, SAILOR 1000 XTR Ka represents the state-of-theart for leveraging the full capabilities of Inmarsat Global Xpress® today, and tomorrow.
The SAILOR 1000 XTR Ka’s advanced RF package with new Ka-band transceiver (XCVR) and feed horn supports dualpolarisation and wide-band Ka, making it ready to take advantage of Inmarsat’s future GX satellite constellations. It also features sophisticated Tracking Receiver technology to ensure fast satellite acquisition at start-up and after blockages caused by e.g. atmospheric conditions or vessel superstructure.
Feature rich, quick and easy to deploy
SAILOR 1000 XTR Ka utilises sophisticated Rapid Deployment Technology to reduce installation complexity and cost. This is a combination of mechanical and software elements such as a true one-cable solution, Dynamic Motor Brakes, the XTR™ Installation Wizard enabling quick and trouble-free deployments.
Technical features include the new XTR Antenna System Control Module located inside the Above Deck Unit (ADU) with a lightning-fast processor, enabling new modular star network component topology, deep selfdiagnostics capabilities and extended, highly secure remote access contribute to optimise every aspect of operation and management of SAILOR XTR™ antennas. Further developments include IoT protocols providing on-demand antenna health and performance data, and unique ‘in-dome’ Ethernet for simple integration of third-party devices such as cellular.
