Communication is Key For Disaster Recovery

Emergency management services often need a rugged, reliable internet connection that can travel with them to wherever an emergency arises. When an emergency hits communication is key to your rescue efforts, and you can’t wait for terrestrial connections to be repaired. Your main focus should be the emergency at hand, not establishing a communications system. That’s why you need a disaster recovery plan with Skycasters satellite service.

Skycasters offers multiple portable satellite internet solutions that can be easily transported. Two of our most popular products for disaster response are the Mobile Satellite Trailer (MST) and the Turn-Key Flyaway.

The MST can be easily towed by even small vehicles and can be detached once onsite so that the vehicle can still be used. The MST features an auto-pointing satellite system, scalable electronics, and integrated Wi-Fi.

The Flyaway is compact and can be shipped virtually anywhere by common carrier. This product comes in two convenient sizes, in which the smaller size (.98m) is designed to fit between the wheels of a full size pickup truck. The Flyaway features a large hard case for the antenna, mount and pointing system; and a smaller hard case for the antenna controller, portable satellite modem, router and cables.


Both systems can be deployed in approximately 10 minutes so your team does not need to fool around trying to get a communication link in place.

Not only can these products be easily brought to your changing locations, but they are built to withstand extreme conditions such as high winds, freezing temperatures, ocean storms and intense heat. All Skycasters equipment is commercial-grade and backed by our 24/7 live, in-house tech support. Our high-speed, low-latency VSAT system supports the applications you need for recovery communications; such as email, fax, VOiP, VPN, streaming data and videos.

This equipment can either be bought or rented, based on your needs. Even better, Skycasters is GSA approved and offers discounts for GSA customers.
