Satellite-based crisis communication for civil defense and disaster protection




Communication saves lives

When developing disaster management plans, the first things that naturally come to mind are ambulances, life-saving equipment, oxygen cylinders and personnel. But one thing has proven to be even more important in the event of a disaster, and that is the ability for emergency responders to communicate with the outside world.

When emergency services arrive at the scene of an accident or disaster, the situation is first checked to assess the extent of the damage and to organize the extent of the necessary first aid. You must be able to communicate immediately with base camp and the outside world so that further help can arrive as quickly as possible.


Goal: Ensuring communication for civil defense and disaster protection
Task: Providing communications in the event of a disaster
Requirements: Secure and independent crisis communication

Reduce the consequences of a disaster

The early availability of voice and data communication can determine whether help reaches the right place as quickly as possible. Therefore, in the early stages of a disaster, communication equipment is the most important means of reducing the consequences. Immediate communication from the disaster zone can save countless lives and prevent some of the worst consequences.

For this case, we offer various EXPLORER® emergency kits, which should be standard components of every emergency plan.

Our products are easy to use even for untrained users and are ready for use in less than two minutes. Our devices enable high-speed voice and data transmission in even the most remote locations.

Ready for immediate use

When minutes count, there is often no time for training emergency responders or reading manuals. Our EXPLORER® emergency kits offer efficient disaster management from the first crucial moment.

In the event of an emergency alarm, simply grab your emergency kit and you'll be prepared. Even untrained personnel have our EXPLORER® emergency kit ready for use within minutes without prior instruction and are immediately able to make contact with the outside world via voice and data connections - no matter where and under what conditions.

Our EXPLORER® emergency kits work worldwide, regardless of the severity of the devastation.


No communication network? You can count on our emergency kits!

Experience shows that common communication networks are the first to fail in the event of a disaster. Cell phone towers have been destroyed and the still functioning communication routes are no longer accessible. Furthermore, the disaster area may have been isolated from the outside world by a tornado, an earthquake, a volcanic eruption or a terrorist attack. The disaster may affect a remote location where terrestrial networks are not available.

Our emergency kits enable instant communication anywhere. Emergency responders have the opportunity to transmit important information to and from the disaster site, such as the names of survivors, addresses for insurance purposes, construction plans to identify areas that are becoming unstable, etc. Survivors of a disaster can contact their relatives by telephone or email to record.

Our EXPLORER® emergency kits have been specifically developed for use in areas where there are no terrestrial networks available and no infrastructure in place. In the event of a disaster, the EXPLORER® emergency kit is ready for use quickly and ensures immediate voice and data communication.

The mobile EXPLORER satellite terminals impress with their robust, but light and handy design. The devices can be operated regardless of location. As soon as they are switched on and aligned with the satellite, they enable immediate communication via satellite signal when connected to a handset, smartphone or laptop.

The self-aligning and tracking antenna of the EXPLORER® vehicle version is mounted directly on the emergency vehicle. This ensures communication and connectivity even while driving. Think of it as part of a cost-effective safety kit.
