Satellite antenna manufacturer, Intellian, has unveiled the latest addition to its GX range of antennas type-approved to work with Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band VSAT network. The 65cm GX60NX terminal is the smallest in the range and is designed for installation on smaller commercial vessels where space is limited but latest satcom technology is still required. The new terminal is also suitable for fishing vessels and leisure craft.
Ship managers and operators will benefit from a standard platform across their fleets because the below deck terminal, single cable antenna connection and AptusNX control software are the same across the entire GX range, Intellian said. The GX60NX is 2.5GHz Wideband Ka-ready, and the block upconverter can be easily upgraded from 5W to 10W if increased upload performance is required, it added.
