Satellite Communication

 Why Satellite Communications?

  • In the majority of emergency situations, the terrestrial wireless infrastructure is either destroyed by the disaster which makes it critical for emergency workers to have access to a wireless communications network that is not dependant on terrestrial infrastructure.
  • Satellites are the only wireless communications infrastructure that is not susceptible to damage from disasters.
  • A group of satellites can cover virtually the Earth’s entire surface.
  • Since satellite solutions can be set up quickly, communications networks and new services can be quickly recov¬ered and reconfigured
  • Satellite technology can provide communications services such as Internet, data, video, or voice over IP.
