The upgraded SAILOR 60 GX-R2 is still small, superlight and advanced user terminal for the Inmarsat Fleet Xpress maritime broadband services. Its unique robust composite/aluminium antenna design keeps weight down while the well-proven SAILOR VSAT technology streamlines the deployment process and maximises operational uptime.
Although SAILOR 60 GX-R2 is a super light antenna, it has the ruggedness and reliability demanded by a professional maritime stabilised antenna system. Additionally, the low weight and compact form factor make it possible for smaller vessels to benefit from broadband connectivity, when before it may not have been an option due to space available or difficulties and costs associated with the installation of larger, heavier antennas. With the SAILOR 60 GX-R2 no crane is needed, saving thousands of dollars in installation costs. It comes in a standard 4.5W XCVR or a high-power 9W XCVR variant.
Super light, super rugged
SAILOR 60 GX is built to withstand the toughest sea conditions and still deliver high bandwidth connectivity on the Inmarsat Fleet Xpress™ services. It is the fastest tracking antenna available in this size, with superior dynamic performance in all axes; roll, pitch and yaw. This high performance means that vessels more affected by rough seas can make the most of Inmarsat Global Xpress, as SAILOR 60 GX-R2 can maintain a satellite link even in extreme conditions.
Ready for the future
Together, SAILOR GX-R2 and SAILOR FleetBroadband (FBB) make Inmarsat Fleet Xpress™. This combination of high throughput Ka-band/GX and reliable L-band/FBB provide a step-change in vessel and fleet operation by enabling access to a new wave of IT applications that support efficiency and reliability of equipment and processes on board.
A simple revolution in VSAT deployment
Just like its predecessor, SAILOR 60 GX-R2 is delivered ready to install, with the included SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU) ensuring quality and reliability throughout the system. Installation is easy, thanks to a wealth of features and design details unique to the SAILOR VSAT technology platform. For instance, it features a single cable between antenna and below deck equipment for RF, power and data, while Automatic Azimuth Calibration and Automatic Cable Calibration enable unique ‘one touch commissioning’. It also features Dynamic Motor Brakes inside the antenna, removing the requirement for mechanical brake straps whilst ensuring the antenna is kept in balance in no-power situations, at sea or during transport.
Streamlining remote access and diagnostics
Just like all other SAILOR Ku and Ka-band systems, the SAILOR 60 GX-R2 is easy to manage; ensuring the best possible support is available anywhere in the world.
Easy remote access and diagnostic features include monthly statistics logging, SNMP and built-in e-mail clients that automatically email historical logging of system performance.
