Indonesian Search and Rescue Deploys New Satellite Communications
Wednesday, January 03, 2018 | Comments

BASARNAS, the Indonesian search-and-rescue organization, deployed satellite communications mobile command and power systems developed by 308 Systems.

Previously, Indonesian military and humanitarian personnel tried to communicate using legacy radio systems and outdated command infrastructure. Given recent tsunamis, fires and mudslides, BASARNAS recognized the need for more command resources in the remote, communications-sterile locations of the nation comprised of more than 1,500 islands.

The custom “mobile command in a box” TAC-PAK/Flexiwatt systems were designed to meet specific mission field communications requirements, including linking field radios to cell phones and computers throughout the country. From the base operations in Jakarta, the systems provision each remote team with a voice and data response capability.

With multiple form factors and satellite communications data rates up to 6 Megabits per second (Mbps), the combination provides deployment flexibility, operates anywhere with efficiency, and is packaged in a rugged, small and portable form factor.
