Cobham SATCOM announced at Nor-Shipping 2013 a new SAILOR FleetBroadband Dual Antenna solution which has been designed to secure uninterrupted data and voice communications on vessels. The innovative new solution consists of two SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband solutions and a Dual Antenna Control Unit (DACU), which can automatically switch between antennas without loss of connectivity.

With the ability to position two SAILOR FleetBroadband antennas at different locations on a vessel, challenges experienced when a single antenna may become obstructed by superstructure, masts, rigging and other equipment can be overcome. This makes the SAILOR FleetBroadband Dual Antenna solution suited for specialist vessels using critical IP applications over FleetBroadband, where loss of connectivity could significantly affect the outcome of a costly or hazardous operation.

Following straightforward installation and configuration where both SAILOR FleetBroadband solutions are connected to the DACU, users experience the same high voice and data quality as with a standard SAILOR FleetBroadband installation, but with the added advantage that as soon as the active antenna loses sight to the satellite, the back-up will come on line to ensure continuous connectivity. The two solutions work as a single system, with the same IP address, a single SIM card and one monthly bill.
