New satellite communications antenna designed by Intellian, convertible for 2014 Immarsat satellite system

Intellian introduce their v110GX Ku-Band maritime communications antenna, which is upgradable to Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-Band service (Global Xpress will allow Inmarsat partners to offer a full range of broadband data services to customers). The equipment includes a fully optimized Ku-/Ka-band antenna reflector and radome, enhanced to meet  RF performance and capability for the future.

Intellian’s v110GX is a 1 meter (41”), 3-Axis Ku-band maritime VSAT antenna communication system serves maritime industries as a platform to easily transform the antenna’s functionality into GX high throughput broadband service globally when Inmarsat’s I-5 Ka-band satellites are launched and operational in 2014.

The v110GX has been designed from the ground up to provide performance for both current Ku-band services as well as Inmarsat’s upcoming Global Xpress Service. The advanced pedestal design and new mounting architecture supports an easy, hassle-free conversion to Global Xpress Service (Ka-band) by manually replacing the RF Module and Feedhorn inside the radome.

The GX BUC/LNB assembly is attached to the rear side of the reflector, with no requirement to re-balance the system. Once the ACU is replaced and power is supplied, the system will be immediately ready and operational for the Global Xpress Service. The entire conversion can be done in the field with minimal time and expense.

Intellian’s new generation gyro-free satellite search function enables Intellian’s v110GX to acquire and lock onto the satellite without requiring separate input from the ship’s gyro-compass.

The v110GX is equipped with the patent-pending Intellian Global PLL LNB as standard. which is capable of receiving all global satellite signals by using programmable L.O. frequencies. Additionally, the v110GX comes with co-pol and cross-pol functionality as standard. With its unique capability of remotely setting frequencies within the PLL LNB, and the ability to use any polarization, Intellian’s v110GX is by far the only system that is ready for Global VSAT Service.

All Intellian antenna systems are designed, manufactured and tested to withstand the company’s industry-leading standards for vibration and extreme shock in all sea states and weather conditions. The v110GX VSAT antenna system meets DNV Standard No.2.4, Class C and MIL-STD-167-1A specifications. VSAT and 3-axis TVRO warranties are now increased to an industry-leading two years for parts and one year for labor.

  • Commercial availability: July, 2012
  • Models are available in 4W, 8W, and 16W BUC.
  • All models are built with Intellian patent-pending Global PLL LNB (LO stability of 1ppm) and Cross-pol and Co-pol as standard.
