Orbit to Display World's First 2.2-Meter Multiband Maritime Satellite Communications Terminal Capable of Connecting Ships Everywhere and at All Times


Ceremonial launch of Orbit's OceanTRx 7 Multiband C/Ka and Ku/Ka satcom terminal scheduled for 3 pm, Wednesday, March 14th at Satellite 2018 in Washington DC, Booth 448

NETANYA, Israel, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI), a leading provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne communications management systems, announced today that it will display its OceanTRx 7 Multiband the world's first and only 2.2-meter multiband maritime satellite communications terminal capable of connecting ships everywhere and at all times.

Orbit's new OceanTRx 7 Multiband C/Ka- and Ku/Ka-band stabilized maritime satcom solution enables high-speed and cost-effective Internet services over new-space LEO/MEO satellites in combination with legacy GEO satellites. Continuous service is assured by automatically transferring active links between setting and rising new-space satellites, for example, and by automatically switching to backup C- and Ku-band GEO links in the case of rain attenuation.

"The ability to seamlessly transfer between new-space satellites and legacy satellites means that connections are never lost," explained Eitan Livneh, Orbit's President & CEO. "Ships equipped with our multiband terminal will certainly have a competitive edge in their ability to continuously communicate."

Orbit invites all those attending Satellite 2018 to a ceremonial launch of OceanTRx 7 Multiband at Booth 448 at 3 pm on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mt Vernon Place NW, Washington, DC, USA.

About Orbit's OceanTRx 7 Multiband solution

OceanTRx 7 Multiband is a revolutionarily compact maritime satcom solution that offers industry-standard RF performance equivalent to a 2.4m (95") dish with a 2.7m (106") footprint. The key to this breakthrough is an extraordinarily-small footprint with outstanding RF performance relative to its size, strict regulatory compliance and support for multiple optional RF chains.

The multiband terminal takes up to 40% less deck space than industry-standard 2.4m (95") and 3.8m (150") systems and is more than 30% lighter than competitive solutions. Small enough to be shipped as a fully-assembled and tested unit in a standard 20-foot container, the OceanTRx 7 Multiband can be installed in half a day. Key advantages include:

  • Electrical switching between C/Ka bands and Ku/Ka bands, respectively
  • Highly efficient dual-offset Gregorian 2.2m (87") antenna
  • Superior stabilization and tracking under severe sea conditions
  • Patented algorithm enabling seamless NGSO satellite handover
