  • Remote Management using Aptus Web. Wi-Fi enabled ACU for local control using Aptus Mobile or PC
  • Save installation and maintenance time with automated diagnostics and built in Spectrum Analyzer feature
  • Supports extremely high and low elevation angles (-20° to +120°)


Multi-orbit and Tri-band Supported

The innovative v240MT is the world’s first antenna system that enables communication services in three different frequency bands and tracks both geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) satellites, as well as satellites in medium Earth orbit (MEO). It combined with the latest innovation, MEO tracking, provides global coverage ensuring interruption-free connectivity. With this new product Intellian fulfills a previously unmet market demands by high-volume data users such as offshore, seismic, and cruise vessels that require fast and seamless communication services like those available on land.

Intellian v240MT Satellite Communications System

Flexible Solution Architecture

Intellian v240MT is capable of switching multiple antennas. Two antennas may be tracking moving MEO satellites while a third could be pointed at a fixed GEO satellite. If one antenna becomes blocked by a part of the ship, the system will automatically select the next best solution and switch without any loss of connection for those on-board. All this happens automatically, without any intervention.

Supporting Dual Data Centers on a ship ensures uninterrupted connectivity. The identical mirrored systems, including a full complement of antenna controllers, Intelligent Mediators and satellite modems, can handle instant changeover between each other with no manual intervention, an important factor in crew safety and vessel operations.
