Orbit Introduces New VSAT Product Line for Maritime Oil & Gas Communications
[Via Satellite 11-07-13] Orbit Communication Systems has high hopes for a new product line for the maritime and oil & gas sectors. It announced Nov. 7 that it will be showcasing and holding live demonstrations of its new OceanTRx maritime stabilized VSAT product line at OilComm 2013. Both the OceanTRx4 and OceanTRx7 support multi-band communications, including Ka-band.
These VSATs offer a variety of stabilized maritime antenna (1.15m/45″and 2.2m/87″ respectively) systems configurations in multi-band frequencies, such as C, X, Ku and Ka bands and BUC power level. OceanTRx4 features inherent field upgradability and has been tested to meet the most stringent environmental standards including shocks, bumps and vibrations. OceanTRx products share common electronic field-replaceable units (FRUs), allowing lower cost of ownership, easier maintenance support, and shorter response times.
