Smart Satellite Connectivity: ST Engineering Forays into Maritime Markets


Customers in the maritime communications markets will be able to enjoy high performance, cost-effective satellite connectivity following ST Engineering Electronics’ partnership with global communications partner Orbit Communications Systems(Orbit).

Driving Smart Satellite Connectivity with Global Partnership Announced in the lead-up to ConnecTech Asia 2018 taking place on 26-28 June 2018, STEngineering Electronics has been selected by Orbit, a provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne communications management systems, to supply its Agilis® Multi-Band Block Up Converters (BUCs) to strengthen Orbit’s maritime Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) system.

Compact and field-proven, the Agilis® BUCs enable higher efficiencies with their improved radio frequency (RF) performance that accommodates higher uplink data transmission rates.Supporting band-switching flexibility, the BUCs allow seamless transfer between new space and legacy satellites, preventing connection loss and delivering superior connectivity under severe sea conditions.“We are proud of the support and confidence our customers have in our ability to meet their stringent requirements,” said Goh Wai Pheng, General Manager, Satcom & Sensors Systems,ST Engineering Electronics. “Our in-depth understanding of our customers’ satellite business needs, coupled with our highly engineered portfolio of satellite communications solutions, has enabled us to implement new and improved connectivity to meet unprecedented data demands from businesses and applications worldwide.”
