Maritime VSAT FAQ

What is a stabilized antenna?

A stabilized antenna is a type of antenna system mounted on a moving platform, such as a ship or aircraft. It is designed to maintain a constant pointing directly toward a satellite in space, despite the movement of the platform. This is accomplished through advanced tracking technology continuously adjusting the antenna's position in real-time.

How does maritime VSAT work?

Maritime VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) uses a satellite in geostationary orbit to transmit and receive data between a ship and a ground station. The ship's stabilized antenna tracks the satellite, and a modem on board sends and receives signals to and from the satellite. This allows the ship to access high-speed internet connectivity, voice and data transfer capabilities, and other communication services.

What are the two types of VSAT?

The two types of VSAT are SCPC (Single Channel Per Carrier) and TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access). SCPC is a dedicated channel always available to the user, whereas TDMA uses time slots to allow multiple users to share a single channel.

What is the difference between VSAT and INMARSAT?

VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) is a satellite communication system that provides high-speed internet connectivity and other communication services to ships and offshore facilities. On the other hand, Inmarsat is a company that provides a range of satellite communication services, including VSAT, global mobile satellite services (GMSS), and aviation communication services. While VSAT is a specific type of satellite communication system, Inmarsat is a company that offers various communication services.
