Sea Tel has released the first USAT (Ultra Small Aperture Terminal) antenna.

Sea Tel announced a smaller, lighter 60 cm antenna system, the first 60 cm marine antenna to meet FCC’s and ETSI’s specification allowing multi mode use with Spread Spectrum, TDMA and SCPC services.

The USAT 24 is aimed at Coastal trading vessels and inland craft. Services are currently being Beta trialed with a number of modem providers including Hughes, Viasat, iDirect, and STM on a number of satellite operator’s footprints world-wide. Service in Europe and the US is expected to start in the 4th Quarter of 2008.

Sea Tel also introduced the newest and smallest in its line of TVRO antenna systems. The ST14 antenna is just 16 lbs with an 18” radome.

The ST14 features a different design than Sea Tel’s previous antenna systems. The new pedestal assembly is made of a nylon polyamide injection molding that is used on aircraft antennas. The physical properties of this material include very good heat and moisture resistance, excellent chemical resistance, and superior strength and wear resistance.

The ST14 has many of the same features as Sea Tel’s Coastal line of antennas. This includes built-in GPS for fast satellite acquisition; DVB (digital video broadcasting) signal identification; Sea-Tel’s proprietary antenna control and fast-track signal lock software; plus stabilization and satellite tracking even in inclement weather. The ST14 is DiSEqC compliant and is fully compatible with Dish Network and Bell TV HDTV services. The ST14 can change satellites automatically when the satellite receiver changes to a channel that is on a secondary satellite.

The ST14 will be available in early 2009 and is ideal for vessels 25’ and above.
