[Via Satellite 11-11-2014] Cobham Satcom unveiled the Sea Tel 9711 Integrated Maritime Antenna (IMA), which is capable of operating on C-Band circular or linear or Ku-band X-pol or Co-pol. The system features a 2.4-meter radical offset antenna for both C-band and Ku-band operation.
Cobham Satcom’s Sea Tel VSAT antennas can switch between VSAT bands automatically in a few seconds using advanced software and a precision mechanical system on the antenna itself. The Sea Tel 9711 IMA contains an Integrated Control Unit as a single box electronic control solution for pointing accuracy.
“When high precipitation or moving a vessel or rig to a new location means changing bands, you no longer have to wait for your connectivity services to be manually re-activated, or pay for a technician to come and do it for you. It’s business as usual from the moment you arrive,” said Darren Manning, senior product manager of maritime products at Cobham Satcom.
