YACHT COMMUNICATION

VSAT

Marine Satellite Systems offer products and services from the major VSAT & TV antenna manufacturers and Service Providers to offer and support end to end solutions.

 

One of the most important factors in a VSAT installation is the installation itself. Marine Satellite Systems only uses the highest standard Coaxial or Fiber cable, each one tested and certified as part of the commissioning phase. During a refit, we will only use existing cables if they can be tested and certified for the intended service.

 

The below products can be installed separately, or by coupling dual antennas through fully automated arbitration switches, giving you seamless operation and continuous connection. All antennas are compatible with ABS, Automatic Beam Switching, which will automatically make the VSAT antenna(s) target the best satellite options for your cruising area.
