Orbit?s OrSat Antenna Successfully Completes Extensive Global-Ku Coverage Tests

: 29 September, 2008  (New Product)
Orbit Technology Group, a well established leader in the field of advanced mobile satellite communication and tracking antenna systems for marine, air, rail, and other ground applications, announces another milestone for its Marine Mobile Satellite Communication System – the OrSat.
Having successfully completed a rigorous field test onboard a ship that traveled from a north western European port, through the Mediterranean Sea, Suez Canal, Indian Ocean and up to Yokohama, Japan – and then back, OrSat demonstrated flawless connectivity throughout the voyage, with seamless roaming between satellites on the rout. Throughout the entire trip, personnel onboard enjoyed uninterrupted, full satellite communication connectivity via Internet, engendering enthusiastic responses from the crew – all without having to change or replace any parts in the system throughout the voyage, and without any other human intervention.

The OrSat is now ready for use as a Global-Ku Satcom system, the only antenna system in the world that has been both fully tested on the global rout and also Type-Approved by all satellite companies that cover this route.

In addition to being ready for Global Ku satellite coverage, OrSat offers the largest gain possible for an antenna enclosed inside a 1.28 m radome. This highly efficient, service oriented, mature and proven system continues to build on its uniqueness and customer satisfaction record, with hundreds sold worldwide. OrSat distinguishes itself through sophisticated and innovative design – simple to operate, with plug-and-play architecture and unmatched cost effectiveness.

OrSat’s performance record, its unique status as having Eutelsat and Intelsat type approvals, and its recent field trial success, confer upon it the status of an off-the-shelf system, ready-to-operate in Global-Ku voyages. OrSat’s track record has led to its selection for the field trial by the Consortium, a group of market leaders, who conducted and supervised the test.

“We are proud to have been selected by the Consortium for this field trial,” says Dr. Ehud Netzer, Orbit’s CEO. He goes on to say, “The success of the test under the Consortium’s watchful eye means an additional measure of confidence for providers of satellite communication. They now know they can immediately apply a working and proven antenna system without the need for testing or adaptations.”

This broadband SatCom antenna – the OrSat - will be presented this month at the SMM show and Monaco Yacht Show. At the SMM, in Hamburg, OrSat will be presented at the Furuno booth located in Hall B6, Booth #110. At the Monaco Yacht Show, Orbit will exhibit the system at Orbit's Booth #QS111.
