Temporary and Mobile Broadband Communications  

In a communications emergency, your quickest relief comes from outer space.

Satellite communications is a logical choice for flexible and fast replacement of essential communications lost in a disaster or other crisis. Recent experiences have shown that portable and mobile terminals can be quickly deployed with geostationary satellites and restore the essential communication link. This capability is fueling a growing trend, as evidenced by:

  • Satellite news gathering (SNG) trucks with fully automatic control of transmit and receive antennas, commonly seen at newsworthy events.

  • Transportable terminals, so compact that they collapse into the size of a carry-on bag.

  • Equipment and services that are more affordable and available than ever before.

Organizations of all kinds that once solely depended on traditional telephone and data network providers now realize the need to provide for business continuity through direct ownership of satellite terminals and on-orbit resources.
