Icom Inc. releases the Satellite PTT Transceiver IC-SAT100M for stable mobile and inbuilding use (15/07/2020)
Icom Incorporated (Headquarters: Hirano, Osaka, Japan/President: Masataka Harima) will release the Satellite PTT Transceiver IC-SAT100M, with which the antenna unit can be mounted outdoors to make satellite communications possible from inside a building or a vehicle. Icom’s Satellite PTT uses the Iridium® satellite network for one-to-many concurrent global communications* with only a push of the PTT (transmit) button. By mounting the antenna unit outdoors such as on the roof of a building, satellite communications from indoors, a car or underground is possible where no satellite signals can reach directly. As ordinary LAN cable is used to connect between the antenna unit and main unit and is powered by PoE (Power Over Ethernet). System installation could not be easier.
The main unit of the transceiver is slim and compact and the supplied multi-function microphone allows for flexible main unit installation. It accepts either the 12 V or 24 V DC power source. Installation in a large vehicle with 24 V DC is possible. Like its hand portable cousin IC-SAT100, it has Bluetooth® function for hands free operation, is dustproof and waterproof, voice record/playback, loud audio output, short data message and AES 256 bit encryption are all available.
Satellite communication with the IC-SAT100M is less susceptible to natural disasters or climate, making it a reliable emergency communications tool for rescue activities, and maintains communications between remote areas and in the sea. Icom Inc. will engage in sales promotion for various type of users like local governments and corporations who require dependable BCP (business continuity plan) solutions.
