The GALAXY-INFL8, the world’s first inflatable emergency VHF antenna, has won seven awards since its launch.
It can be rapidly deployed via an embedded canister or manual tube and inflates to 1.6 meters to offer a full 3dB high visibility unit and a range of up to three times greater than any existing helical emergency antenna.
The GALAXY-INFL8 is also supplied with a bespoke splice connector, enabling fast and efficient connection to existing radio cables, which further improves the radio transmission range – another industry first.
The GALAXY-INFL8 has been designed with multiple features to enhance users’ safety at sea, including contrasting colours to allow it to be seen day and night and built-in reflective strips for extra visibility. The antenna is mounted with hook and loop straps allowing for quick and easy installation in any weather, and thanks to its inflatable design and manual valve it is reusable, so it can be deflated and stowed away safely until it is needed.
Shakespeare Marine are giving away a GALAXY-INFL8 and five spare gas cannisters.
