BATS Wireless offers broadband communications solution for FPSOs

June 24, 2014

BATS Wireless, a provider of wireless stabilization, optimization, and tracking systems, announced the development of enhanced technology focused on solving connectivity problems that frequently plague deep and ultra-deepwater FPSO, FSO and drillship operations.

BATS provide systems that facilitate critical production communications and data capabilities between the assets and key support vessels and structures typically used in offshore deployments.

BATS' proprietary stabilized microwave systems, which can be integrated with almost any radio, are used to form a high-speed, high-capacity network that can offer up to multi-gigabit connectivity speeds. The ruggedized, marine-grade BATS DVM systems deliver wireless communications and data opportunities to FPSO operators, enabling end users access to faster, more adaptive communications networks.

The systems feature BATS' connect and track technology, allowing for the dynamic connection and continual movement of high-throughput point-to-point. BATS systems provide links that can automatically adjust for movement, either due to environmental or requirement changes; and provide organizations a stable and secure, high-bandwidth, private FPSO communications and data pipeline either back onshore, with vessels and platforms in-field, or both.

Phillip Cramer, V.P. sales & marketing, BATS Wireless commented "Offshore operators working with BATS are seeing a major shift in the world of high-bandwidth wireless communications everyday– the era of using satellite links to perform simple tasks like conference calls between vessels is over."
