Indonesia Federal Police Receive Satellite Broadband on the Move Technology
Tuesday, September 10, 2019 | Comments

Several groups supplied Indonesian Federal Police command center vehicles with technology to access satellite broadband on the move.

The project is a collaboration of ThinKom, Skyreach, Heimdall Defence and Newtec. ThinKom supplied the antenna, integrated with the Newtec Dialog Hub. Heimdall was responsible for system integration, installation, user interface and operator training, and Skyreach is providing very small aperture terminal (VSAT) connectivity.

The systems were initially deployed on two Indonesian Federal Police vehicles. Other installations are expected to follow in the coming months.

Based on ThinKom’s patented phased-array technology, the vehicle-mounted antenna enables IP networks, streaming video and voice-over-IP applications without stopping to deploy a fixed satellite terminal or waiting for a blockage recovery.

“This satcom-on-the-move capability will be a tremendous asset to the Indonesian Federal Police in sustaining mission-critical operations across the 6,000 inhabited islands in the Indonesian archipelago,” said Riana Ng, Heimdall regional account director. “Many of them have limited or no terrestrial mobile communications network coverage.

Satellite communications on the move is also useful in urban areas, especially at busy times when a mobile network becomes congested, executives said.
