Case Study – Black Pearl
OceanWeb are proud to provide VSAT Airtime services to the 106.7m Oceanco sailing yacht Black Pearl.
The 106.7m (350ft) three-masted sailing yacht Black Pearl is a unique and complex vessel and was the result of an elaborate and successful collaboration on the part of an international group of designers, engineers, naval architects, builders, and project managers.
Our IT Manager, Damian Brand, and one of our Technical Support Engineers, Josh Brand, visited the vessel to carry out a VSAT commissioning however, they had been made aware that there was an issue with fixed heading programming due to the independently rotating masts. (The dual VSAT antennas are located on the forward mast port and mizzen mast starboard)
Our Managing Director, Ben Hextall, worked closely with Intellian prior to the visit to create a bespoke software solution to overcome this issue. Ben identified the technical requirements and Intellian’s R&D team then created a custom firmware patch which meant that the heading output could be disabled. Following this, they were able to carry out the VSAT commissioning with no additional issues.
