New VSAT Satellite Terminals Provide Fast, Portable High Speed Data Transmission
First Responder and Military use of VSAT satellite terminals from 308 Systems is a pivotal technology in ensuring fast, effective responses during critical missions.
FORT COLLINS, Colo., – Communication always plays a vital role in the completion of missions both stateside and overseas. Imagine the importance of precise communication for the Wisconsin-based National Guard engineer company that will soon be deployed to Afghanistan to search and seize of IEDs (improvised explosive devices) in the eastern part of the country. This mission's full completion is critical so that the United States forces can begin to move troops and equipment out of Afghanistan.
Alternatively, imagine the necessity of swift and accurate data transmission for responders to natural or man-made disasters within the United States. Responders to any of the hurricanes or tornadoes that have struck the United States in recent years have found themselves trying to communicate in the midst of total terrestrial chaos and destruction.
In either case, mission completion is easier said than done due to the dangerous nature of each situation and the presentation of ravaged infrastructure. Swift, reliable and precise communication is critical, yet tough to attain in remote or devastated terrain. However, the use of VSAT (Very Short Aperture Terminals) technology as available from 308 Systems enables the National Guard in Afghanistan or a team of emergency responders in the United States to communicate quickly and precisely. VSAT has a higher speed backhaul data rate, operates anywhere with great efficiency and is small and highly portable.
With VSAT communication backhaul, agency missions are accomplished swiftly and safely.
