The award winning* SAILOR 60 GX is the smallest, lightest and most advanced antenna for the new Inmarsat Fleet Xpress High Throughput Satellite (HTS) maritime broadband service. Based on a unique, cutting-edge composite/aluminium design to keep weight down and sophisticated SAILOR VSAT technology for unmatched performance and features, SAILOR 60 GX streamlines the deployment process and maximises operational uptime.
Super light, super rugged
SAILOR 60 GX is built to withstand the toughest sea conditions and still deliver high bandwidth connectivity on Fleet Xpress. It is the fastest tracking antenna available in the 60cm class, with superior dynamic performance in all axes; roll, pitch and yaw. This high performance means that even smaller vessels more affected by rough seas can make the most of maritime broadband on Fleet Xpress, as SAILOR 60 GX can maintain a strong link even in extreme conditions and on the edges of the beams.
Enter the HTS era
Together, SAILOR 60 GX on Fleet Xpress with integrated SAILOR FleetBroadband, provide a step-change in vessel and fleet operation by enabling access to a new wave of IT applications that support operational efficiency and reliability in addition to crew welfare. Fleet Xpress delivers high bandwidth connectivity, while SAILOR 60 GX ensures that it is always available on board so vessels can operate smarter through harnessing the power of connected maritime IT and technology.
A simple revolution in VSAT deployment
SAILOR 60 GX is delivered ready to install, with the included SAILOR GX Modem Unit (GMU) and SAILOR Antenna Control Unit (ACU) 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 uses 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 SAILOR VSAT systems, the SAILOR 60 GX is incredibly 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.
* In March 2016, SAILOR 60 GX won the prestigious Mobile Satellite Users Association's (MSUA) 2016 Top Maritime Mobility Satcom Innovation award, highlighting it as one of the most innovative maritime VSAT systems ever developed.
