Marine Internet Antenna Systems and Maritime Broadband Satellite Service

Marine Internet Antenna Systems and Maritime Broadband Satellite Services provide always on connectivity for ships, yachts, sailboats, commercial vessels, oil platforms and fishing boats while underway at sea or stationary at a mooring.  Marine VSAT systems deliver broadband satellite internet service that can be used to check emails, watch television, upload and download large files, make VOIP phone calls and monitor the vessels location.   Typical marine satellite antenna sizes are .60, .80, 1.0, 1.2, 1.8 and 2.4 meters.  The components of a marine satcom system include the stabilized antenna platform with radome, block upconverter and satellite modem.  Marine satellite systems typically utilize the Ku frequency band.  Some popular marine satellite antennas include:

Intellian

KNS Supertrack

KVH

Sea-Tel

The latest and greatest offerings of Marine Internet Service provide broadband internet access with speeds up to 10 Mbps and beyond depending on your antenna and BUC size.  The most common service package is generally 2 Mbps downlink and 512 Kbps uplink.  This service can be delivered by using a 1.0 meter marine satellite antenna.     Over the last few years, marine internet has become faster, more reliable and less costly due to upgraded electronics and advancements in antenna technology.

Digisat supplies complete turnkey maritime internet solutions to vessels around the world.  Whether you’re just looking for an antenna or installation, Digisat can help guide you through the ever evolving choices of equipment and service packages.

Marine television systems are also available through Digisat.  Information on maritime TV can be found here: Maritime TVRO Antennas

“VSAT technology is the new de facto standard for maritime connectivity. Industry-analyst COMSYS reported strong growth for VSAT service as the total number of vessels in service rose by 55 percent between 2007 and 2009. This strong growth shows the value that high-speed, always-on connectivity offers to maritime companies around the globe. E-mail, Internet, VPN and VoIP applications help vessel operators retain skilled maritime talent; increase and improve interactions between operations at sea and management on shore; and realize cost savings that come with tighter operations and faster, more efficient information exchange.

Solution Overview
iDirect is the market leader in maritime VSAT connectivity solutions and the most broadly deployed technology across the growing ranks of broadband-enabled vessels. According to COMSYS, 47 percent of all VSAT routers installed on vessels today are made by iDirect.

iDirect’s innovations in IP broadband provide a cost-effective, scalable solution with always-on connectivity. The flexibility of the iDirect system allows a maritime service provider to start small, with minimum investment, and scale networks as business grows.

From regional services to global Ku- or C-band networks, iDirect technology maximizes capacity while it enables maritime providers to guarantee service levels that meet any customer demand. Twelve of the top 15 maritime service providers leverage iDirect technology to develop networks to support customer requirements.”  from iDirect

Mobile Satellite Internet Antennas and Systems

Mobile Satellite Internet Antennas and Systems are becoming increasingly popular throughout the world due to our constant demand for instant information, news, video and internet access.  These  satellite terminals have the ability to deliver broadband internet access anywhere in the world, regardless of existing communications infrastructure.  Mobile satellite terminals consist of a VSAT antenna, BUC (block upconverter) and a satellite internet modem.  Portable VSAT satellite antennas range in size from compact .6  meter vehicle mounted antennas, to large scale trailer mounted uplink systems that are over 4.5 meters in size.  Most of the common mobile VSAT antenna systems are typically in the 1.2m to 1.8m size range and use 5 to 10 watt C or Ku-Band BUCs, depending on the satellite.   Recently, Ka-band services have also become increasingly popular due to their blazing fast speed and small antenna requirements.

Maritime VSAT Antenna System

KNS Z24 C-band maritime VSAT antenna system was released this week. It is also designed for small radome size and a rigid structure like Z30. The radome size is only 3.15m D x 3.1m H and it is abruptly 0.5m smaller than competitor’s 3.65m D x 3.6m H in radome size. This will allow for much fast and easy installtion.

Z24 supports both linear and circular polarization. It also supports up to 200W BUC. This will allow customers for more flexibility according to their applications. Cooling or Heating device is optional.


KNS Z24 C-band antenna specifications are as follows.

Reflector size : 2.4m
Radome size : 3.15m D x 3.1m H
Antenna weight : 400Kg (without RF package and radome)
Polarization : Linear/Circular
Antenna RX/TX gain : 38dBi/41.6dBi
