USA. Intellian launches its unique X60 Ka-band system

Wednesday, 07 May 2014


Intellian, the technology leader in satellite communication systems, has launched its new x60 terminal which has been specifically designed to deliver efficient high-speed broadband operation on Inmarsat’s Ka-band Global Xpress™ (GX) service which comes into service later this year.

To complement the high performance 65cm x60 antenna, the all new GX Below Deck Unit (BDU) combines the modem internally with the antenna control unit. This saves considerable time during installation and uses less space than separated elements. The BDU also includes Wi-Fi to allow wireless connection of various devices onboard. Users also benefit from the 8 network ports on the BDU providing a turn-key solution to make the x60 a complete communication solution in one compact unit.

The x60 uses the dedicated Intellian Aptus software for system control and monitoring. Aptus software automatically configures the antenna system which enables true one-touch commissioning, considerably reducing engineer’s onboard time. Aptus is also available as a mobile app for greater accessibility to the terminal wherever the operator is located.

The Intellian x60’s high-gain, efficient reflector and frequency tuned radome ensure the best service quality available for Ka-band operation. The precision design gives complete reliability in all operating conditions, while Intellian’s innovative Gyro-free satellite search function enables the x60 to acquire and lock onto the satellite without requiring a separate input from the ship’s gyrocompass, further simplifying the installation process.

The x60 supports Automatic satellite and beam switching for seamless, Global Xpress coverage when crossing from one satellite coverage region to another. In addition, the x60 supports a low elevation angle (-20°) capability to guarantee reliable connectivity even at high latitudes.

The new Intellian x60 system provides fast, simple installation and commissioning with trouble free Ka-band connection, confirming Intellian’s position as the leading supplier of satellite systems for the forthcoming Inmarsat Global Xpress™ service.
