Sea Tel Cobham Announces Launch of 4012 Ka/Ku Antenna

Cobham will launch ahead of schedule the much anticipated Sea Tel Model 4012, the industry’s first and only highly-integrated onemeter (1m) Ku-band to Ka-band upgradable marine-stabilized antenna system. It will be available for sale during the first quarter of 2012. The new antenna architecture will be future-proof and fully compatible to work with Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) network.

Based on the industry leading 4009 antenna pedestal, the Model 4012 system will be GX ready at launching. It will offer a simple and intuitive Ku to Ka upgrade path. The upgrade can be performed in the field in one or two short steps by a Cobham trained technician.

Model 4012 will be the first antenna that will be fully optimized to meet the demanding maritime communications needs of the 21stcentury. The model architecture is being designed for ease of installation including one- step commissioning, web user interface with secured socket layer (SSL) password protection, built-in remote management capabilities, and easy integration into network management systems through its media exchange point (MXP). “I am confident that the Model 4012 will be the next industry standard just as the 4009 antenna system is today,” said Fred Cahill, vice president of Cobham Antenna Systems. “The 4012 will have the mechanical superiority of the 4009, easy to use web user interface and monolithic software architecture. The system will also be field upgradable to the Global Xpress network.”

” Cobham’s Sea Tel Model 4012 is great news for Global Xpress,” said Frank Coles, Senior Director of Maritime Services for Global Xpress. “With this antenna our customers can have a future-proof built-in path to the Global Xpress Ka band network.”

The 4012 model is being designed to meet industry’s leading stabilization accuracy, highly efficient antenna reflector and a frequency selective fine-tuned radome designed for peak performance in both Ku and Ka band.
