Satellite PTT Radio devices are connected via satellites in space which allow them to reach beyond the limitations of an antenna-based infrastructure – for day to day communications in a remote location or during a critical incident rather than relying on ground-based infrastructure for connectivity, you are always connected, even when traditional methods fail.
Organisations that require critical long-range communication capabilities such as emergency services (disaster response, first responders), non-governmental organisations (coast guard, research teams) and businesses & organisations (mining, oil refinery, nuclear facility, shipping) have all benefited from this technology.
The Iridium Satellite covers Earth with 75 satellites (66 operational and 9 in-orbit spares), these low earth orbit (LEO) satellites cover 100% of the planet. Unlike geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO) satellites, Iridium satellites are 46 times closer to the earth, enabling superior coverage and service.
Satellite communications connect you to the outside world from anywhere in the world, whether you are inside or outside of radio/cellular coverage, providing highly reliable, cost-effective equipment.
As with all radio communication technologies, satellite systems have their strengths and weaknesses, and therefore they are often used in conjunction with other technologies to ensure communications are not interrupted. For example, the ICOM SAT 100 and IC-SAT100M Satellite PTT Mobile Radio offers interoperability with existing two way radio networks (using VE-PG4) in addition to:
Whilst its weather-resistant L-band spectrum signal ensures connectivity in the harshest conditions.
During critical situations organisations need to be prepared to navigate any situation, which is why emergency preparedness should always start with establishing a fail-safe communications system that can handle anything.
Because of its resilient infrastructure, availability and ease of deployment satellite communications have been the foundation of disaster safety systems for decades. Designed to be used either in-buildings or installed into vehicles/vessels, satellite PTT (Push-To-Talk) can be used to establish communication even in remotest of areas without access to landlines or mobile phones. For example, operating exclusively on the Iridium® satellite network the ICOM IC-SAT100 PTT radio can provide a stable back-up, independent of terrestrial networks in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, improving situational awareness and worker safety.
*Depending on the country or area, a flat charge plan may not apply, or the service may not be available.
**Communication fees differ, depending on the coverage area and the number of the IC-SAT100/M satellite ptt radios.
