Cobham Reduces Integrated Global Xpress Antenna Costs

November 28, 2017 - Cobham SATCOM has revealed an innovative new solution that can significantly reduce the cost and simplify the installation and management of Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) networks using multiple Ka-Band antennas. Multiple antennas are frequently used on board to overcome link losses caused by satellite blocking from the ship structure or other deck equipment. Compatible with Cobham SATCOM’s technology-leading SAILOR 100 GX systems, the solution has already received Inmarsat type approval for use with the Inmarsat GX satellite systems. Supported by the unique single cable solution used on SAILOR antennas, Cobham SATCOM has overcome the need to add a 19” rack unit to operate a multiple antenna system, introducing potential installation savings in the region of US $10,000.
