In addition to the bespoke new terminals, Intellian will also develop a 100cm upgrade kit for Intellian’s popular NX Series. The NX Series is the world’s market leading VSAT maritime antenna, and this conversion kit will enable thousands of vessels the opportunity to connect to Viasat services. The new 60cm and 100cm bespoke user terminals leverage Intellian’s innovative satellite terminal technology and geostationary satellite orbit (GEO) modem integration expertise. With many world-firsts and industry leading innovations, Intellian has quickly garnered the reputation for engineering excellence through their customer-centric approach. With the new range of Viasat products, customers will benefit from highly reliable access to Viasat’s satellite network, including the upcoming ViaSat-3 constellation. The launch of the first of the trio of ViaSat-3 satellites is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023, and is expected to be in service for the maritime market in 2023. From streaming to video conferencing, Intellian and Viasat will empower a true at-home and in-office experience for superyacht, energy, and commercial customers, so everybody onboard can do anything online.
