First dual antenna system installed

ADVERTISEMENT

Communications company e3 Systems has installed the first Inmarsat dual antenna Fleet Xpress system on S/Y Ganesha, a 151-foot (46m) performance sloop built by Vitters Shipyards in 2013. The system features Inmarsat’s high-speed, high-quality Fleet Xpress Ka-band VSAT service delivered through dual Cobham SAILOR 60 GX antennas.

The antennas, measuring 60cm, represent the lightest and most compact means on the market of accessing High Throughput Service (HTS) Fleet Xpress maritime broadband, according to an e3 press release. Ganesha uses e3’s Hybrid solution, which combines VSAT and 4G data and enables vessels to manage and monitor other factors, including IPTV and cyber security.

The Fleet Xpress solution also offers a weight savings of more than 200kg over the yacht’s former Ku-band antennas, e3 said.

“The fact that everyone aboard can now essentially take for granted the same broadband quality as they would expect on land is a major asset for everything from crew communications, weather routing and real-time business updates to personal messaging and recreation,” stated Ganesha Capt. Alex Pamment.
