Have you ever been in a situation where your day-to-day communications didn’t work as a result of disaster, terrorism or just because you operate in remote locations?
If you answer yes, then you know, first-hand the frustration of not being able to perform critical tasks and job responsibilities. In addition, there could be potential risk to peoples lives. When communications break down, chaos replaces order and people end up in harm’s way unnecessarily. So what do you do? You develop a communications strategy to keep people talking to one another for good management and implementation of initiatives. Your solution?
Terrestrial systems are at tremendous risk of failure during times of crisis. Floods hurricanes, war, terror attacks – all can cripple landlines, radios and cell phones because they are destroyed or become over-taxed and thus unreliable. When you rely solely on these solutions your mission becomes nearly impossible because you need communications to coordinate strategy implementation, whether executing a mission or coordinating a rescue operations. Satellite communications are the only truly reliable communications solution when all else fails.
