VSAT provider OmniAccess has partnered with US antenna manufacturer Phasor to launch what they claim is the world’s first maritime Ku-band digital phased array antenna.

The antenna, designed for the high-end yachting market, has a one inch profile. It is also fully electronic and has no moving parts, which will help it to track satellites more accurately, according to OmniAccess.

Multiple antenna modules placed on a yacht can be configured as a single conformal antenna or a distributed array, and OmniAccess says RF performance is comparable to traditional 2.4m reflector antennas.

The Phasor antenna has been designed to operate in Ku-band, and live tests have already been conducted on a commercial Ku-band GEO satellite.

The first prototype of the product will be shown at the Monaco Yacht Show from 24-27 September 2014.
