Public Safety Satellite Communication Solutions

You Are Not Prepared Until Your Communications Are Recent years have seen the number of disasters rise sharply—hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods, landslides. Emergencies are an ever-present possibility. Are your communications ready?

As the United States prepares to deploy a nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN), satellite communications is at the forefront for delivering extended coverage and resiliency in the network. Inmarsat Government offers solutions for state and federal partners to meet the coverage and reliability objectives.

This combined with Inmarsat Government’s dual satellite stations, terrestrial network and redundant backups you are given a level of resiliency that is unheard of with traditional deployable communications along with almost unlimited range.

Why use satellite: Extending LMR Coverage Satellite Push to Talk is a complementary service that connects L-band terminals to existing LMR radios. By connecting your radios to Inmarsat’s L-band network it enables you to access Beyond Line of Sight communications without the need to modify the radios’ hardware or the encryption. Inmarsat’s “Push to Talk” solution is a less expensive option available to vehicles and dismounted officers. Since Push to Talk reuses your existing equipment the cost of hardware and training have been kept to a minimum. It is fast to setup and requires minimal user intervention before

Public Safety Solutions Inmarsat Government recognizes that there is no single solution that meets all of Public Safety’s needs. We have developed a range of satellite solutions using multiple frequencies to match your various missions and requirements for a seamless, integrated network.
