US antenna manufacturer, Phasor has announced that it has reached an important milestone in its trading history, having secured over $300 million worth of contracts.
Facilitating the ability to provide high-bandwidth service in a more robust and reliable way, Phasor has developed a series of electronically steerable antenna systems (ESAs), which provide superyachts with enhanced connectivity at sea.
Phasor claims its ESAs facilitate faster and more cost-effective mobile broadband access, an area which is often considered to be problematic at sea.
David Helfgott, CEO of Phasor comments, “These contracts demonstrate Phasor’s progression from a technology development firm to a products company focussed on delivering enterprise-grade ESAs to commercial mobile broadband markets.”
According to Phasor, their series of low profile, ESAs are solid-state with no moving parts, which facilitates the electronic tracking of satellite signals. The system works through antennas which have the capacity to scale to any use-case requirement, including fixed or mobile. Concealable within the yacht’s design, Phasor antenna systems are available in either a flat or conformal shape, suited to support fixed satellite networks, High Throughput Satellite networks and Non-Geosynchronous satellite networks.
In the coming months, the American company is expecting to announce additional contracts across its commercial mobile broadband and government Communications-on-the-move (COTM) markets, which includes the superyacht industry.
Superyacht connectivity is one of the industry’s most pertinent topics, and will be up for debate with leading provider PRIVA, in attendance, as part of ‘The Perfect Customer Journey’, at The Superyacht Forum.
