VSAT & TVRO
VSAT and TVRO
Maritime VSAT is the use of satellite communication through a Very-Small-Aperture Terminal (VSAT) on a moving ship at sea. Since a ship at sea moves with the water, the antenna needs to be stabilized with reference to the horizon and True north, so that the antenna is constantly pointing at the satellite it uses to transmit and receive signals. VSAT Systems receive broadband internet at sea.
TVRO (Television Receive Only) systems receive signals from satellites whose orbit exactly matches the speed at which the Earth spins. This means that the satellite dish does not have to move in order to keep up with the satellite. This is especially useful at sea, when conditions can be rough. AMI Vietnam provide TVRO systems with 3-axis stabilization - ensuring crystal clear reception even in poor weather.
