The Intellian i5 US System directly addresses the needs of offshore cruising vessels ranging from 40-60' in lengths.
The radome diameter of the i5 is 61cm (24") and it delivers extended coverage with a compact size. Intellian's signature iQ2 technology delivers quicker and quieter signal tracking and simple installation for the ultimate customer experience. The system's Wi-Fi enabled antenna control unit (ACU), provides the option to manage the system wirelessly via PC or Mobile Device, using Intellian's graphically intuitive control application, Aptus.
Just the Right Fit
The i5 is the world's first 20" satellite TV antenna purpose built for offshore cruising vessels in the 40-60' range. It's performance enables reception of TV service throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean and Mexico, while it's size is better suited for vessels under 60' in length.
Simple & Easy installation
With a single cable to connect the antenna and the ACU, the i5 system is quick and easy to install. Our intuitive ACU features a front panel display with functional keys and requires minimal setup so you can begin to enjoy TV programs in no time.
Quicker & Quieter
Intellian's patented iQ2 technology delivers the best user experience available on the market today. An advanced signal searching algorithm acquires the satellite 4-5 times faster than conventional methods. Intelligent, real time beam analysis holds the signal and reduces overall motor movement by up to 80%, eliminating annoying background noise while at anchor or in the slip.
The i5 includes a built-in GPS, which facilitates an easier installation by eliminating the need to integrate with the vessel's system. Additionally, the GPS enables faster signal acquisition and improves overall tracking performance.
Standard All Americas LNB
The i5 is built to cruise offshore throughout the Americas. For this reason it comes standard with Intellian's own All America's LNB, meaning users will not have to swap LNBs when sailing between regions.
Wireless Control via Aptus
Built-in Wi-Fi enables the ACU to be wirelessly managed and controlled via Aptus PC or Mobile, Intellian's graphical antenna control software. Aptus user-friendly displays vital performance metrics in a graphical format that simplfies operation. It even includes an auto diagnostic function designed to help solve problems quickly should they arise. The Aptus Mobile application is available in the Apple Store and through Google Play.
Occasionally satellite TV service providers make unannounced changes to their network that cause outages for marine users who do not receive regularly scheduled updates via their at home dish. Aptus Mobile automatically checks for these updates, enabling users to stay current with any changes through a simple mobile app process.
Tune in your favorite HDTV channels
Intellian's i5 recieves HD channels from any Ku- band TV service. Enjoy HD programming whether cruising in the US, Mexico or the Caribbean.

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.Read More
An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
