Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Sweden-based Naval Electronics AB – active in TV and radio reception since 1971 - expand their satellite programme with the NavSat 60 satellite antenna for TV and internet reception on the Ku-band. Naval Electronics AB expand their satellite programme. The NavSat 60 is the most recent addition, in the company’s satellite programme. It is a 60 cm satellite dish antenna for TV and internet reception on the Ku-band. The antenna is designed for easy plug and play installation and requires no GPS or gyro connection. It is stabilized with a two-axis solution with automatic skew control.

An array of piezoelectric gyroscopes and accelerometers keeps the antenna pointing towards the chosen satellite irrespective of weather conditions. Satellites are selected with a small remote control unit and the antenna automatically verifies that it is tracking the correct satellite, using a proprietary software solution. NavSat 60 is targeted towards smaller professional marine users like coastal freighters and the expanding mega yacht market. The product will be launched in connection with SMM in Hamburg at the end of September. So far, reactions from the pre-launch have been very positive and customers are impatiently awaiting the market introduction.
