ORBIT bags OrBand Maritime VSAT system order


ORBIT Communication Systems, a provider of
mission-critical connectivity solutions in a variety of markets including
satellite communications, tracking and telemetry, and communications management
systems, announced a contract with an Asian Navy for multiple OrBand (AL-7107)
maritime C-Band VSAT systems.


This is another major order for our recently launched
OrBand system and serves as a confirmation of the groundbreaking performance
and value of the system,” said Yosi Albagli, president, Satellite
Communications at ORBIT.


OrBand’s compact footprint and light weight were
instrumental in securing the deal, as it allowed the deployment of global
C-Band VSAT to a wider range of vessels, including smaller ships which could not
fit any of the larger industry-standard systems.


Since its recent launch, OrBand is attracting great
interest from all segments of the maritime industry.


From commercial cargo ships and navies that need global
coverage and fast installation times, to oil and gas support vessels that
struggle to fit the larger C-Band systems, OrBand offers an innovative solution
for maritime customers that require high-performance VSAT systems with a small


OrBand leverages breakthrough technology to deliver RF
performance equivalent to industry-standard systems, in a much smaller
footprint. Industry-standard systems feature a 3.8m (150″) radome, while OrBand
features an extraordinarily compact 2.7m (106″) radome, requiring substantially
less deck space.


OrBand is also 30 percent lighter than competitive
solutions. Small enough to be shipped as a single, fully assembled and tested
unit in a standard 20 foot container, OrBand drastically lowers cost and time
for shipping and installation.


OrBand supports extended C-Band and extended Ku-band
frequencies, as well as multiple RF feeds. Electrically switchable polarization
facilitates satellite switching and increases system versatility.


In addition, automatic beam switching (ABS) enables
seamless global coverage through the industry-standard OpenAMIP protocol.


ORBIT offers a diverse portfolio of advanced satellite
communications solutions for maritime and land-based applications.


ORBIT’s systems are installed on over 3,500 marine
platforms, from naval vessels to cargo ships, ocean liners, oil rigs, as well
as fast trains, enabling TV reception and broadband IP connectivity for
always-on applications such as Internet, video, telephony and more.
