Cobham Satcom Announce New 09 Series Antennas

Building on the success of the 06 series VSAT antennas, Cobham Satcom have announced the launch of its successor. The replacement Ku band 09 series will still be available in 40 inch (1m) and 60 inch (1.5m) versions as well as a new 50 inch 1.2m version.

Among the many improvements over previous models, the above decks unit is in a brand new radome. Inside, much of the electronics has been simplified by combining functions into a single electronics pack.

Enhancing the Sea Tel marques reputation for industrial strength and reliability, the new unit will be even tougher. For example, there is a new heave damping mechanism that reduces shock loading and increases survivability in extreme conditions.

The new 09 series is available now in a limited release prior to its formal Launch in November 2009. In Ku band there will be the 4009, 5009 and 6009 available with the a choice of RF options.
