Cobham SATCOM issues critical software update for MF/HF radios

Cobham SATCOM, the leading manufacturer of SAILOR communications equipment, has issued a mandatory software update for the following maritime radio series:

  • SAILOR 63xx MF/HF DSC Class A Series, both version A and version B.

The new software update is regarded as “critical and mandatory” as it provides a fix for possible data corruption during distress procedure, and as such it should be performed as soon as possible, to avoid potential issues when a distress call is made.

Satcom Global’s marine engineering team are available to provide support and advice to SAILOR 6000 MF/HF users, and make any arrangements for necessary software updates.

Our multi-skilled in-house engineering team has supported marine communications for over 40 years, and are well equipped to provide safety surveys and maintenance for radio systems from leading manufacturers such as Cobham SATCOM and Furuno, keeping them in good working order. Additionally, our marine spares team can assist with extending the lifespan of equipment with access to any replacement parts as and when needed.

For those looking to replace or upgrade radio communications systems, our specialist marine systems team can also advise on the best radio systems and related equipment to suit vessel requirements. A range of MH/FH radio, VHF radio, portable handheld radios and GMDSS systems are available for long range communications, emergency distress calling and safe and efficient operations.
