Maverick VSAT Drive-Away Systems
The Cobham Explorer 8100 Ku-band Drive-Away VSAT system is a reliable auto-acquire system that provides On-the-Pause internet access up to 4 Mbps. Typical users include emergency response and news media organizations operating from land vehicles. The Explorer 8100 uses an auto-acquire antenna that is extremely sturdy and continuously adjusts using an advanced "Dynamic Pointing Correction" system. This assures that the satellite signal stays locked even with wind speeds up to 69 mph. The antenna can remain deployed in winds up to 73 mph and will survive stowed in winds up to 100 mph. Key features of the Explorer 8100 include:
- 1.0 m stabilized, multi-band, drive-away terminal
- 8-Watt Ku-Band BUC
- Pointing normally achieved in less than 2 minutes
- Built-in Wi-Fi access
We offer short-term and long-term Maverick VSAT plans with MIR and CIR specifications customized to your needs. An approved modem such as the Newtec MDM3100 or MDM2510 is required. Our most popular plan is the Maverick North America Disaster Recovery Plan. This plan was developed with North American based emergency response organizations in mind and includes unlimited-use on a best-effort basis without any CIR guarantee but can be upgraded on short notice to high performance dedicated bandwidth during a crisis. The pricing below is suitable for an Explorer 8100 Ku-band system configured with a 8W BUC and a PLL LNB with +/- 25Hz LO stability.
* A Cobham Explorer 8100 can be configured for Ka-band or Ku-band. The equipment described on this page is Ku-band but the demonstration video below is for a Ka-band system.
