CommSystems Connects Another Research Vessel with Satellite Communications

Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute joins HiSeasNet for Communications While at Sea

Mar. 6, 2006 -- CommSystems announced that they have provided the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution (HBOI) with a shipboard satellite earth station system for it's research vessel the R/V Seward Johnson.  The 2.4 meter C-band earth station will allow HBOI researchers to connect to the University based HiSeasNet satellite network that allows research vessels real-time communications while at sea.  Using E-mail, Internet connectivity, VoIP telephony, as well as uploading research data can now be done in instantaneously while at sea, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the HBOI research projects.

Using a 2.4 meter C-band antenna system from Seatel, CommSystems provided a network solution that allows HBOI to be online anywhere in the Pacific or Atlantic Oceans, both in coastal and deep water applications.  The antenna automatically points to and tracks a geostationary satellite, adapting to the pitch, roll, and yaw of the ship's motion in real-time regardless of sea conditions.

The system connects to a large land-based earth station system that was also provided by CommSystems, and is based at the University of California, San Diego.  CommSystems provided two 7 meter C-band antennas, and a 3.8 meter Ku-band antenna on top of the San Diego SuperComputer Center allowing UCSD's HighSeasNet direct access to both the Internet, and the University-based Internet2 network.

CommSystems is a system integrator of satellite communication networks for Internet, telephony, data, video, and audio broadcast applications.
