Why Buy From Fondriest?


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.

Built-in GPS
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.

Instant Updates
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.

White Bear Lake Stands Out In Study Of Twin Cities Lakes

Following water level declines in lakes around the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey were interested in identifying the cause. What they found along with that was a large degree of variability between the lakes, based on geology, elevation and land use. That there was such variation isn’t too surprising, as Mother Nature is far from neat in laying things out. But the sheer size and scope of the study has a nice way of underscoring just how different individual lakes can be from one another even if they sit nearby. The effort, looking at 96 different lakes around Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn., found wide variation in water levels over time. Some lakes gained in water levels while others nearby saw them decline.

West Antarctica Glaciers Melt At Pace Not Seen Before

Researchers with the University of California (UC), Irvine, and NASA have completed a pair of studies documenting the pace of glacier melt in West Antarctica. Their findings show that the melting there is occurring at a rate never before observed. The studies examined three neighboring glaciers that are melting and retreating at different rates. The Smith, Pope and Kohler glaciers flow into the Dotson and Crosson ice shelves in the Amundsen Sea embayment in West Antarctica, the part of the continent with the largest decline in ice. One, led by a UC Irvine researcher, looked at satellite records in its approach.

Figuring Out How Microplastics Move From Mussels To Fish

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.
