Cobham Satcom lands significant order

Cobham Satcom and China TranTech have signed a contract for the supply of its SAILOR XTR Ku VSAT antennas, which will be supported by an extensive training and global service program. The company claims this is the largest delivery to the Chinese market so far.

China TranTech is a subsidiary of China Transport Telecommunication Information Group Company Limited (CTTIC) and the only maritime satellite safety communication provider in China.

“Our Commercial shipping customers demand the most reliable connectivity and we are confident that the SAILOR XTR platform will deliver exactly this,” said Mr. Kong Xianglun, GM, China TranTech. “We have chosen to focus on SAILOR XTR especially because the technology allows flexible, easy access for remote services while providing a rugged foundation for internet connectivity even in the extreme conditions that Chinese merchant vessels face regularly.”

Reliable technology

The company highlights that the SAILOR 1000 XTR Ku antennas offer dependable, high-speed connectivity that vessel crews need to optimise remote marine operations at sea. They also offer a unique built-in ethernet port for easy integration of third-party devices, facilitating additional functionalities such as effortless switching between satellite and close-to-shore cellular services for the most cost-effective operations. These innovations were among the deciding factors for the selection of the SAILOR XTR technology platform for this contract.
