Comtech integrates converter with VSAT antenna for marine sector

by Staff Reporter | April 3rd, 2012

Comtech EF Data Corporation announced the successful integration of its LPOD Block Up Converter with C2SAT’s 2.4m C Stabilised VSAT Antenna. The integration of the innovative products will reportedly provide maritime users with a premier satellite-based broadband communication solution for oceanic vessels in motion.

The LPOD Block Up Converters were engineered with efficient thermal and mechanical packaging based on Comtech EF Data’s experience in outdoor RF transceivers. The LPOD eliminates the traditional requirement for the modem to supply a DC power source and a 10 MHz reference to the BUCs and LNBs. The optional internal reference and LNB bias T greatly simplify multi-carrier operation and provides cost-effective redundancy. The LPOD’s compact size and weight make it ideally suited for installations with limited mounting space.

“The field-proven performance and reliability of Comtech’s offering parallels our commitment to providing robust and reliable systems,” commented Ulf Sundqvist, head of sales for C2SAT. “We now offer the LPOD as a standard catalogue item.”

The combination of our BUCs and C2SAT’s stabilised VSAT antenna provides a rugged, weatherproof and seaworthy solution

The C2SAT 2.4m C is a 4-axes marine stabilised VSAT antenna compatible with C-band satellites. The 4-axes antenna allows the RF equipment to move freely, maintaining an optimal position towards the satellite without large and sudden movements even during harsh conditions and heavy seas. The system does not experience dead angles or high elevation problems. The high reliability makes the antennas suitable for main connection points as they can carry large volumes of information without interruption.

“The combination of our BUCs and C2SAT’s stabilised VSAT antenna provides a rugged, weatherproof and seaworthy solution,” said Daniel Enns, senior vice president strategic marketing and business development for Comtech EF Data
