OrSat AL-7103 MKII
According to Orbit Technology, this 1.15-meter (45-inch) Ku-band marine-stabilized antenna is the first of its size range to be type approved by Eutelsat and Intelsat, meaning no further verification is needed to use either of these broadband services, which, along with Radiomarine, are more of the many now offering marine VSAT. The AL-7103 also claims a unique four-axis configuration, remote-monitoring capability, and a relatively easy single coax install cable. It costs $60,000 before installation.
