Smallest VSAT antenna and world’s first satellite messenger

Data Technology Solutions recently introduced the smallest VSAT antenna and SPOT, the world’s first satellite messenger.

The new mini-VSAT Broadband service uses sophisticated spread spectrum technology to provide vessels with data reception rates as fast as 2 Mbps and data transmission rates as fast as 512 Kbps via a 24” KVH-developed marine terminal. The first fully integrated maritime VSAT system works seamlessly by combining innovative and revolutionary technology, including rugged, fully stabilized antenna technology from KVH Industries, powerful KU-band satellite networks, and ViaSat’s ArcLight spread spectrum mobile broadband technology. The world’s first satellite messenger. SPOT is the only device of its kind, using the GPS satellite network to acquire its coordinates, and then sending its location – with a link to Google Maps – and a pre-programmed message via a commercial satellite network. SPOT can be used for commercial lone worker safety applications for those businesses with employees operating in remote areas outside the range of cellular and other wireless communications. It is also a valuable safety tool for any person who drives outside of cellular coverage or for emergency messaging when cellular or land-based communications may be damaged or unavailable. And because it uses 100 percent satellite technology, SPOT works around the world – even where cell phones don't.

Largest ever Victrex Peek-based structure designed to deliver subsea pumping relability in extreme subsea oil & gas operations

To reduce exploration and production costs and risks in subsea oil and gas systems, Magma Global Limited has developed flexible m-pipe technology. Their latest lightweight continuous pipe is both the largest and longest Victrex PEEK-based structure ever, achieved with the support and expertise of Victrex. It can be deployed to depths of 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) and handle pressures of up to 15 ksi (103MPa). The composite pipe combines PEEK, high-grade carbon fibre and S-2 Glass fibres to form a reliable subsea intervention line that meets the demand for a hydraulic pumping system that can handle high pressures and high flow rates.

Trelleborg identifies sealing materials to extend seal life in high fire risk oil & gas hydraulic applications

Alternative sealing materials, such as Zurcon Z80 and in particular Zurcon Z13 could offer better wear resistance and extended life in HFC fluids.
Alternative sealing materials, such as Zurcon Z80 and in particular Zurcon Z13 could offer better wear resistance and extended life in HFC fluids.

Due to the different chemical makeup of HFC and HLP fluids, sealing materials proven and traditionally used with HLP fluids, though effective in HFC applications, do not necessarily provide effective performance or length of life in HFCmedia. In tests, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has identified sealing materials that offer extended life in HFC applications.
