With built-in GPS, Low Profile BGAN reduces the exposure of personnel to unnecessary risks and can be used for discreet and sensitive operations:
The easy-to-use unit reduces the need for trained manpower and is simple to install without a PC.
An arrow on the antenna’s cover indicates the direction in which the antenna needs to be pointed, and audio pointing tones are also generated to a 3.5mm jack socket. The antenna is placed on a flat surface and oriented in the direction of the satellite and can then be covered with a light layer of soil or vegetation. The terminal is then connected to the IP feed from the surveillance and intelligence gathering systems.
Low Profile BGAN’s sophisticated power management capability includes remote controlled wake-on-SMS or local automatically trigged power-up. This allows the system to operate for extended periods in stand-by mode, which enables ultra-low power consumption and thus extended battery life.
High performance sensors can be rapidly deployed at zero notice and the service fills gaps in existing sensor networks.
Low Profile BGAN is available across the globe, with the exception of the extreme Polar Regions, providing connectivity wherever your operations take you.
The service is delivered over the Inmarsat-4 network, with 99.9 percent satellite and ground network availability.
Low Profile BGAN meets military and government requirements for security and supports all major VPN products and encryption standards.
The modem delivers exceptional low-power consumption (< 1 W idle) for off-the-grid installations. Both modem and antenna are IP-67 rated for outdoor use and can also be installed below ground-surface for inconspicuous operation. A thin layer of dry, non-metallic material over the antenna is permissible during TX/RX operation.
