If a friend in need is a friend indeed, this is even truer in the emergency response and public safety domain. We provide the critical communications link between you and your support network. 

In a world where disaster events are becoming increasingly more common, we regularly see the destruction of terrestrial infrastructure or the overload of mobile communications systems. This is when Inmarsat comes to the fore.   We deliver reliable, inter-operable satellite communications to meet the needs of first responders to command, control and coordinate operational personnel in the field, whether terrestrial networks are available or not. Our satellites are safely out of harm’s way at 36,000 kilometres up in space, and with dynamic beam allocation we are able to focus our capacity where it is needed most. Communications made certain when you really need them.

When dealing with a crisis, emergency services personnel understand the need for timely and accurate exchanges of information. Inmarsat delivers reliable, inter-operable satellite communications to meet the needs of first responders to command, control and coordinate operational personnel in the field, whether terrestrial networks are available or not.

Inmarsat’s suite of voice and high-speed data services is transforming the emergency and disaster response operational landscape. Our robust, quickly deployable BGAN, FleetBroadband and SwiftBroadband terminals deliver reliable broadband services on land, at sea, and in the air. Following the establishment of a voice communications link, data requirements from ground control often become increasingly demanding. Global Xpress allows for higher data rates in order to ensure operational expediency and success.

The BGAN PTT solution is the perfect solution for delivering comms on the move to first responder vehicles. With satellite voice services backed up by access to our BGAN data network, situational awareness is in every cabin, at the push of a button – regardless of how local communications infrastructure has been affected by the emergency condition.

And if you need Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) communication using existing UHF or VHF radios with no modifications needed there’s our L-TAC service, which when used in conjunction with the Spectra slingshot applique, provides a one hop link to our L-band satellites, acting as your radio repeater in space and negating any need to request scarce TACSAT resources.

Inmarsat’s IsatPhone 2 handheld satellite phone provides a clear, dependable voice service anywhere on the planet – no matter how remote – and has proven a lifeline for survivors in the aftermath of major disasters.
