Cobham SATCOM reports that it has passed the milestone of delivering its 50,000th SAILOR FleetBroadband terminal, ten years after the system was launched in parallel with Inmarsat’s L-band maritime satcom service in 2007.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The 50,000th FleetBroadband terminal was a FleetBroadband 250 unit, delivered to Network Innovations in Miami.

The SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband with its 30 cm reflector dish and SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband with a 50 cm reflector were launched in 2007, with 10,000 units shipped in the first two years. SAILOR 150 FleetBroadband, with a 15 cm reflector, followed in 2009, and the range was extended further in 2015 with the launch of the SAILOR Fleet One terminal.

“We’re delighted to have shipped so many SAILOR FleetBroadband terminals, which help thousands of vessels stay safe and connected to shore,” said Casper Jensen, senior vice president, Cobham SATCOM.

“Despite being introduced nearly a decade ago, SAILOR FleetBroadband continues to be an important part of our maritime satcom antenna portfolio, alongside our line of SAILOR VSAT Ku and Ka-band terminals, which offer the same high reliability and feature rich operation for all widebeam and spotbeam VSAT services, including Inmarsat’s new Fleet Xpress.”{/mprestriction}
