Satellite communication for emergency response

Communication is key in everything and especially in emergency response as better communication means quicker response. Responding quickly in areas affected by conflict or natural disasters could be the matter of life and death in some cases. When armed conflicts have damaged the communication infrastructure “satellite remains the only technology available” says Claudiu Mateescu, Telecom Engineer at ICRC, the International Committee of the Red Cross. 

The secret of useability

The Satcube Ku provides high performance satellite broadband with speeds of up to 20 mbps. The terminal builds upon a unique pointing system which allows the user to point the antenna with an accuracy of within 0.2 degrees. This is achieved with high-performance navigation sensors and smart software integration. The refined user interface on the display guides the user to optimal performance everytime, everywhere. 


The Satcube navigation system utilises GPS, Global Positioning System, to accurately provide location. The angular position of the antenna is determined by the IMU, Inertial Measurement Unit, which includes accelerometer, MEMS gyroscope and Power Density sensors.
