INDIANAPOLIS February 23, 2017 – BATS Wireless (BATS), the world’s leading innovator of wireless stabilization, optimization, and tracking systems today announced that it has been selected by a major oil & gas company to deliver its innovative Platform-to-FPSO communications solution for integration offshore. The project calls for BATS to provide its state-of-the-art DVM-90XL system, which will help facilitate critical communications and data sharing between a central platform and fixed production and offloading vessel in the oil-rich Nigerian Basin.

The DVM-90XL antenna system will be outfitted with dual Aviat ODU600 radios; used to form a high-speed, high-capacity network that can offer 700 Mbit/s connectivity speeds. The expanded-size DVM-90XL offers a 360-degree continuous, marine-grade ruggedized architecture, boasting sea salt and spray-resistant composite materials with dual-layer water protection. These design improvements allow for a large antenna system that can deliver uninterrupted use in some of the harshest environments offshore. Read More>

INDIANAPOLIS – February 16, 2017 – BATS Wireless (BATS), the world’s leading innovator of wireless stabilization, optimization and tracking systems, today announced the commencement of trials of its FAST platform as the on-the-move offshore wireless network platform of choice for a major Asian electronics and engineering provider. BATS will deliver its FAST 5.8 GHz intelligent tracking antenna solution and integrated radios for trials offshore. The FAST solution is a replacement for inefficient PMP-based wireless networking solutions that rely on omni-directional antennas for communication to other vehicles or vessels in the area. BATS FAST solution brings a higher throughput, increased range, and lower-cost alternative over legacy satellite and PMP-based options.

The customer, one of Asia’s largest publicly-listed companies, with a presence in more than 20 countries, recognized that legacy wireless and satellite-based offshore networks offered today would not serve their needs for a wireless communications solution that kept pace with their cutting-edge technologies. They selected BATS after understanding the advantages offered by a solution based on tracking, stabilizing, and optimizing wireless links that were constantly on-the-move. Read More>

INDIANAPOLIS January 31, 2017 – BATS Wireless (BATS), the world’s leading innovator of wireless stabilization, optimization and tracking systems today announced a key success in the rollout of their enhanced FAST auto-aligning and tracking antenna.

Together with regional partner SpectoRemote, the BATS FAST system was able to deliver an 85/85 Mbps half-duplex link at nearly 50 kilometers during a ship to shore operation. The FAST system successfully tracked the origin base station for the entire ship route, with high-speed connectivity still available from the origin port while docked in the destination port approximately 48 kilometers away.

Peak speeds for the FAST system near port exceeded 170/170 Mbps, while successfully delivering 100/100 Mbps mid route. Utilizing a dedicated link aggregation appliance, combined with other FAST’s and BATS antenna systems onboard operators are able to achieve double the connection speeds normally available while also providing link redundancy.

We Worked with Mimosa’s B5c to Deliver Industry-Leading Gigabit Unlicensed Wireless for Communications and Data

INDIANAPOLIS, May 13, 2016 — We’ve developed a unique solution using Mimosa’s ODU B5c radio to deliver communications and data for operators needing high-speed, spectrum efficient, broadband communications and data.

Delivering up to 1.5 Gbps in single unit, single radio configuration; the Mimosa B5c is an excellent choice for cloud-managed, unlicensed, communications and reliability.

The unique integration with the auto-aiming antenna solution from BATS allows for enhanced flexibility of Mimosa’s B5c radio a variety of applications. The solution makes use of one (1) Mimosa B5c radio and one (1) dual-polarity MIMO 4.9–6 GHz panel antenna.


BATS Wireless Announces Successful Test of High-Capacity FPU Communications Link

INDIANAPOLIS, August 13, 2015 — BATS Wireless (BATS), the world’s leading innovator of wireless stabilization, optimization and tracking systems, today announced the successful test of three of its stabilized microwave systems for a major Oil & Gas project—located off the coast of Pointe Noire in Republic of Congo. The systems, when installed, will allow the field operators to provide high-speed, low-latency data and communications to their main floating production unit (FPU), even during constant sea motion.

For this project, BATS’ industry-leading proprietary, stabilized DVM wireless systems and Aviat microwave radios are used to form a high-speed, high-capacity network that can offer up to multi-gigabit connectivity. The ruggedized, marine-grade BATS systems deliver a wealth of cutting-edge wireless communications and data opportunities to FPSO, FPU and drillship operators, enabling end users access to faster, more adaptive communications networks—already providing major energy producers with both enhanced production capabilities and crew comfort.

BATS Delivers Microwave Systems

BATS Wireless announced the successful test and delivery of 10 of its stabilized microwave systems, including eight DVM ExP2 ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 systems for the Martin Linge Project – located off the coast of Norway. The systems, when installed, are designed to allow Martin Linge operators to provide high-speed, low-latency data and communications between their main vessels, even through constant moving sea states.

Configured for last line Emergency Shut Down (ESD) communications, the systems for the Martin Linge Project have been tested to allow extended communications of up to 11 hours.
