Thrane & Thrane FleetBroadband terminals available for order

  • Friday, 05 October 2007 | News

Thrane & Thrane has announced that its SAILOR series of satcom terminals for use with Inmarsat's next-generation FleetBroadband system are now available for order.

The terminals come in two sizes, SAILOR 250 and 500, and are expected to be type approved in the middle of November. The antennas will be released to the market directly after approval is confirmed, with the official launch of FleetBroadband by Inmarsat expected on November 19th.

The SAILOR 500 system will be able to provide connection speeds of up to 432 kbps with ISDN capability, approximately seven times faster than current generation Fleet77 systems. It utilises an antenna smaller than the mid-range Fleet55, with a diameter of less than 60cm, weighing just 16 kg.

SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband offers data speeds up to 284 kbps with an antenna that's smaller than today's Fleet33 system. The diameter of the equipment is less than 30 cm and weighs in at just 5 kg.

"Developed in close co-operation with Inmarsat, the SAILOR 500 and 250 FleetBroadband systems harness the power of the next generation of Inmarsat satellites for a multitude of safety and operational benefits," said Casper Jensen, manager, maritime global marketing, Thrane & Thrane.
