Reliable satellite and radio services are vital for fast and effective delivery of aid where communications are poor or non-existent due to conflict or natural disaster.
Lightweight, portable satellite and radio systems provide humanitarian workers and first responders with instant communications to quickly deploy logistics processes and co-ordinate crisis relief.
Many satellite phones incorporate inbuilt SOS and tracking facilities that are ideal for personnel working in remote or dangerous surroundings.
Satellite terminals, modems and VSAT systems can be used to set up temporary offices, with access to applications, head office communications or even video conferencing solutions.
