A 1.2 metre Stabilised, Auto-Acquire, Drive-Away Antenna System, which harnesses the same unique Dynamic Pointing Correction technology and carbon fibre construction introduced with the already available 1 metre model, EXPLORER 8100.
As the newest member of the EXPLORER 8000 family of VSAT terminals, EXPLORER 8120 is equipped with a single piece 1.2m carbon fiber reflector and the unique Dynamic Pointing Correction technology that ensures continuous connectivity even if the vehicle rocks.
Traditional vehicle mounted ‘Comms-On-The-Pause’ VSAT antennas can lose connection to the satellite with even the slightest movement of the vehicle on its suspension caused by high winds or people getting in and out. EXPLORER 8120 isn’t a traditional VSAT antenna.
With EXPLORER 8120 you can enjoy continuous connectivity services even if the vehicle rocks thanks to the unique ‘Dynamic Pointing Correction’ system. Using lessons learned from Cobham SATCOM’s maritime stabilized VSAT antennas, EXPLORER 8120 offers the most reliable connectivity available in its class.
EXPLORER 8120 is developed completely in-house by Cobham SATCOM. It features genuine and rugged EXPLORER design, which is already established and proven with Cobham SATCOM’s highly regarded EXPLORER BGAN and GX terminals.
It is designed to offer unparalleled Comms-On-The-Pause performance, ensuring high-quality connectivity that is available even when other antennas would have lost their connection to the satellite. In the field, this means you can count on EXPLORER 8120 to provide you with vital communications whatever the conditions.
EXPLORER 8120 features industry-leading fast satellite acquisition with pointing achieved in less than four minutes, making getting connected to a satellite a quick and easy process.
The system is available in Ku-band configuration and works with most major satellite networks.
