Orbit Receives $2.2 Million Order for Its Multiband Maritime Satcom Solutions

Orbit Communications Systems has announced that a global NGSO (Non-Geostationary Satellite Orbit) operator placed orders totaling to approximately US$2.2 million for their multiband maritime satellite communications solutions.

Delivery of the company's OceanTRx 7 Multiband terminals, which support both C/Ka and Ku/Ka frequency bands for continuous broadband connectivity aboard cruise ships, is expected in 2018 and 2019.

Orbit's 2.2 m (87") OceanTRx 7 Multiband C/Ka- and Ku/Ka-band stabilized maritime satcom solutions enable the most demanding maritime vessels and platforms to enjoy fiber-like broadband communications for high-speed and cost-effective Internet services – all contained in a very simple system with relatively few moving parts.

It is a revolutionarily compact maritime VSAT system that offers industry-standard RF performance equivalent to a 2.4 m (95") dish with only 2.7 m (106") footprint. The key to this breakthrough is an extraordinarily-small footprint with outstanding RF performance relative to its size, strict regulatory compliance and support for multiple swappable RF chains.

The multiband system's 2.7 m (106") radome takes up significantly less deck space than industry-standard 4.2 m (165") systems and is much lighter too. Small enough to be shipped as a fully assembled and tested unit in a standard 20-foot container, OceanTRx 7 Multiband can be installed in half a day. Click here to know more.
