ST Engineering Partners with Orbit to Bring Smart Satellite Connectivity for Maritime Communications

ST Engineering Electronics’, at the ongoing ConnecTech Asia 2018 event, has announced a partnership with its global communications partner Orbit Communications Systems (Orbit). ST Engineering Electronics has been selected by Orbit, a leading provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne communications management systems, to supply its Agilis Multi-Band Block Up Converters (BUCs) to strengthen Orbit’s maritime Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) system.

Compact and field-proven, the Agilis BUCs enable higher efficiencies with their improved radio frequency (RF) performance that accommodates higher uplink data transmission rates. Supporting band-switching flexibility, the BUCs allow seamless transfer between new space and legacy satellites, preventing connection loss and delivering superior connectivity under severe sea conditions.
