  • Trailer and tower can be removed for aircraft transport over long distances.
  • Entire unit can be airlifted by most military helicopters.
  • Deployable by a single person and fully operational in 5-15 minutes (varies based on equipment).
  • Most configurations do not require technical expertise for setup.
  • Onboard systems can be remotely monitored and controlled via IP.
  • Flexible platform supports a wider range of missions for less.
  • One stop shop for technical support and maintenance – We own and operate multiple satellite teleports and VoIP hosting facilities and provide end to end technical support for all equipment and service we provide.
