Overview

The Inmarsat GX network provides a single platform of VSAT hardware that can be deployed anywhere around the globe and connect to the Inmarsat GX satellite network for high speed Internet access.

The SKY 180 system is designed for deployment at fixed site locations such as mining camps, oil & gas camps, exploration camps, disaster relief long term installations and a variety of other applications where high speed Internet is required in remote locations.

Key Features

  • Sealed RF chain – included matched feed-horn & polarizer
  • All passive cooling for improved reliability
  • 5 watts transmit power
  • Pointing accuracy <1.00
  • Precision galvanized Az/El mount

The SKY 180 terminal for Global Xpress is an enterprise product suitable for fixed and semi-fixed applications. It is made up of a 1.8m one-piece precision composite reflector, an integrated Ka transceiver and an indoor rack-mounted VSAT modem. The SKY 180 is pre-approved for out-of-the-box compatibility with Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Commercial (29-30 GHz) Ka-Band network.

The integrated Ka transceiver houses a 5 watt BUC, PLL LNB and waveguide components in a sealed, IP-rated unit for protection against the environment and is fanless in order to improve reliability. The reflector is manufactured from a proprietary compound developed especially for Ka-Band applications to ensure an accurate surface profile and robust mechanical properties. The heavy-duty back-structure and Az/El mount provide rigid support for the reflector and incorporate fine Azimuth and Elevation mechanisms with features to minimize backlash and lockdown errors.

  • Proprietary composite reflector for maximum Ka-Band performance
  • RF chain housed in sealed unit for improved environmental ruggedness
  • Precision Az/El mechanism to minimize backlash and lockdown errors for accurate pointing
