Sailor 1000 XTR™ Ku VSAT

The new SAILOR XTR™ antenna platform optimizes VSAT delivery and performance in any maritime environment. It is a future-proof platform prepared for constellations such as LEO, MEO, GEO, and HEO. With built-in IoT protocols like MQTT, SNMP, and RESTful API for self-reporting, the SAILOR XTR™ provides up-to-date detailed antenna information and allows for preventive maintenance.

The SAILOR 1000 XTR™ Ku is the first of Cobham SATCOM’s new generation of software-controlled antenna systems designed for quick deployment, operational reliability, simplicity, and best-in-class radio frequency (RF) performance. Leveraging Cobham’s unique R&D expertise, the SAILOR XTRTM integrates the best of the SAILOR VSAT technology into a new platform with cutting-edge software and electronic capabilities that prepare it to operate in future satellite constellations in LEO, MEO, GEO, and HEO orbits. Technical features including a new type of control box located inside the Above Deck Unit (ADU) with a super-fast processor, deep self-diagnostics capabilities, and extended, highly secure remote access contribute to optimizing every aspect of operation and management of the SAILOR XTR™ antennas.

The Below Deck Unit (BDU) is a programmable switch with interfacing to the modem. IP data is transported between ADU and BDU using a Multimedia over COAX standard, allowing for high data transfer of up to 1 Gbps. The new BDU still supports the original emailing of statistic and diagnostic files but now also supports the latest and greatest IoT protocol, MQTT, allowing you to subscribe to any antenna topic parameter.

The SAILOR XTRTM is a Ku VSAT antenna platform future-proofed with unique features and capabilities, such as:

  • Rapid deployment technology with a true one-cable solution and software-enabled functions replace mechanical intervention during installation and operation.
  • Best-in-class RF performance ensures that customers get the most out of their VSAT subscription.
  • Built-in flexibility ready for future satellite networks.
  • Dual antenna operation for reliable automatic switching between two antennas.
  • New secure software platform reduces the risk of hacking.
  • New pedestal design simplicity improves mechanical performance.

Designed for maritime connectivity services operating on GEO satellites as well as forthcoming NGSO networks, the SAILOR 1000 XTR™ Ku antenna system is one meter of pure innovation. It offers deep IoT capabilities which allow service technicians to take control with visibility into antenna health and performance on demand. Leveraging Cobham SATCOM’s unique R&D facilities and VSAT antenna leadership, the SAILOR 1000 XTR™ Ku is a technology leap that enables diverse global satellite connectivity services with unrivaled reliability for safer, greener, and more efficient digital ship and fleet management.

Moreover, the SAILOR XTR™ is the cutting-edge technology and future-proof platform at the heart of all new SAILOR antenna systems. Its new capabilities can maximize performance and optimize customer service, resulting in industry-leading uptime on Ka- and Ku-band satellite networks in any orbit. Technical features including a new type of control box located inside of the ADU with a super-fast processor, new modular star network component topology, deep self-diagnostics capabilities and extended, highly secure remote access contribute to optimizing every aspect of operation and management of SAILOR XTR™ antennas.
