Comsat TeleSystems Introduces The MCS-9100 Ship Earth Station

Comsat TeleSystems, Inc., Fairfax, Va., has introduced the MCS- 9100 ship earth station, a maritime satellite communications system designed to accommodate the size and weight requirements of yachts, fishing boats, and similarsized craft, but which also meets the rugged construction and design standards demanded for the largest oceangoing vessels and offshore facilities.

The MCS-9100 is 50 inches high, 44 inches wide and weighs less than 100 pounds. It was specifically designed for ease of installation, operation, and maintenance.

Telephone, telex, data, and facsimile transmission capabilities provide for reliable worldwide communications.

Automatic tuning is to all 339 available channels.

The MSC-9100 offers a wide variety of optional features and peripheral equipment. An emergency power supply ensures communications for a full six hours in event of shipboard electrical failure. A remote terminal control unit is available to provide communications control from any location onboard the vessel. Other options include a Satnav interface for automatic transmittal of information to a shore station, a PBX/ PABX, a bridge annunciator, telephone expansion unit, Weather Facsimile Information (WEFAX), and an automatic voice call initiation feature.
