Government & Defence
Governments, national and local, NGO’s and Defence organisations all share the same characteristics – a need for resilient, secure and highly dependable communications, typically operating over large, and multiple, geographic areas, and across different control and operations centres both in the field and at the offices.
These are typical challenges for local emergency services as well as disaster relief organisations, embassies, border security and treaty monitoring organisations as well as logistics operations in theatres of famine, war, and disease across land, sea and air – as well as local emergency services.
Access to local services may be limited, may be considered insecure, or not offer sufficient bandwidth. Also, when operating across a large space, it is unlikely that a single network can offer reliable connectivity. While urban canyons can render satellite links inoperative, experience shows that cellular coverage can be limited outside main conurbations. Satellite services can address some of the issues, but there may be logistical, operational, and technical restrictions.
Each of these scenarios whether at land, air and sea relies on the most robust connectivity solutions to enable rapid information exchange, situational awareness, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) to allow for seamless command and control, and to warrant the safety of victims and personnel.
