The Sea Tel ST144 is our top-of-the-line, 3.6m (144″) TV-at-Sea system. The reflector, radome design , RF components and the pedestal are based on our well proven 14400B system. It is the preferred system for users who need the largest possible offshore operating area and compatibility with all known and planned satellites. The ST144 has undergone major tracking, reliability, stability and industry leading MK2 electronics improvements. The ST144 is the antenna of choice for large vessels operating in deep oceans.
The ST144 has reliable and proven MK2 electronics that are used in our XX09, XX10 and XX11 antenna systems. The MK2 electronics have a host of improvements for improved productivity. These include: LED indicators for troubleshooting, USB port for BlueTooth adaptor and digital control interface between the motor driver and PCU for improved communications. The level cage used in the predecessor systems has also been replaced by high accuracy accelerometers. This allows for continuous calculation of position, orientation and velocity vector of a moving object without the need for external references.
The micro-electromechanical (MEM) sensors used in Sea Tel’s antennas are based on the same technology currently being used in
missile and aerospace technology around the world. Much like its predecessor, the ST144 is available in C-band and Ku-band configurations or dualband configuration that permits the same antenna to be used for both. The ST144 is designed and built to pass the U.S. Navy’s tests for vibration, shock and protection against RFI and EMI emissions.
