Type approval as first shipment heads out to customers worldwide

Inmarsat has formally presented the type approval certificate for SAILOR 150 FleetBroadband to Thrane & Thrane during the leading satcoms equipment manufacturer’s Global Partner Conference, held in Copenhagen 23rd – 25th June 2009. The type approval confirms SAILOR 150 FleetBroadband’s compatibility with official requirements and was received prior to the first worldwide customer shipment, which left Thrane & Thrane’s Copenhagen headquarters on 29th June 2009.

SAILOR 150 FleetBroadband is the ideal solution for the next phase of Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband service, which is aimed at professional single user applications such as workboats or fishing vessels, in addition to recreational boats, both power and sail. It features the smallest and lightest FleetBroadband antenna to date and offers simple user-installation so smaller vessels with a requirement for global internet and voice can enter the broadband era with a true IP solution for the first time.
