G8 Summit: ND SatCom Provides Reliable Communication Among First Responders


Friedrichshafen, June 5, 2007 - ND SatCom, an SES ASTRA company, is supporting reliable communications during the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm (Germany) for first responders of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW). THW staff members will be providing technical assistance to the summit's infrastructure and using the network for telephony and data exchange via satellite. A satellite-based communication network using SkyRAY Light, ND SatCom's new antenna system, shall establish the link to THW headquarters in Bonn via a mobile station in Heiligendamm. The SkyRAY Light system is very fast to deploy and easy to use, which is of utmost importance in critical government applications. SkyRAY Light's operational concept is plug & play. Antenna pointing is based on a one-button operation enabling non-technical first responders to be on air within minutes.

ND SatCom's mobile and flexible satellite communications technology no longer requires first responders to set up complex and expensive conventional communications infrastructure for single use. The usage of the satellite-based network supports full independency from any traditional terrestrial telecommunications infrastructure or radio link system. Command centers and mobile units are equipped with compact mobile and fixed satellite terminals which are quickly to deploy and easy to use.
