Mobility

Wherever communication is needed, Proactive is there.

In the aftermath of natural disasters or during emergency situations, first responders often face enormous communication challenges that hinder their ability to efficiently manage crises. When existing terrestrial communications infrastructures fail, mobile satellite communications solutions deliver reliable integrated communications where and when they’re needed.

From auto-deploy communications packages and trailers, to fully integrated, operable vehicles, Proactive offers a range of mobile response solutions to meet your Emergency Response and Disaster Relief needs. 

Auto Deploy VSAT Packages

Proactive designs, delivers and supports a broad range of rugged, deployable VSAT packages. With support for up to 50 remote responders, our Emergency Response and Remote Office solutions are built to provide interoperability, ease-of-use, rapid deployment, and robust communications—anywhere in the world.

Our flexible packages are built to support various customer needs, and integrate modular components and capabilities from industry-leading technology partners like Cisco, Riverbed, iDirect, Fortinet, and Uplogix. We also include our data, Internet and VoIP services on either shared or dedicated circuits, and provide engineering experts and 24x7 monitoring to maintain the integrity your communications in the face of adversity. 

Portable Satellite Communications

Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) is the first mobile communications service to deliver simultaneous voice and broadband data globally through a single portable device. High-performance, full portability, simple setup, and competitive pricing make BGAN an ideal solution for routine mobile business needs and remote operations.

BGAN is also first to offer guaranteed data rates on demand.

The freedom to communicate.

Using a lightweight satellite terminal about the size of a notebook computer, BGAN gives you the freedom to perform critical communications wherever terrestrial networks are unavailable:

  • Access e-mail, corporate networks, and the Internet
  • Transfer files

Satellite Phones

Global Satellite Phone Service (GSPS) offers a powerful alternative to the handheld, fixed, and maritime phone solutions currently available in the marketplace. GSPS provides high-quality voice and 2.4 kbps circuit-switched fax and data connectivity via small, affordable equipment. GSPS (accessed with the ISatphonePRO handheld device) utilizes the Inmarsat-4 satellite network, deployed in 2010 with decades of operational life.

Features:

  • Global voice, SMS, voice mail and text messaging
  • Call forwarding and restriction options
  • Message notification
  • GPS Look-Up-and-Send

SPaRTAN™ Manned Emergency Response Vehicles

Specifically designed to support emergency responders in disaster situations, Proactive’s SPaRTAN™ vehicles are self-contained, immediately deployable emergency response solutions, giving you the ability to communicate, access data, and provide real-time information updates over Internet Protocol (IP). 

Available as a Chevrolet Suburban or Coach-style transport vehicle, we customize the SPaRTAN vehicles to meet your organization’s specific needs.

SPaRTAN Features:

  • Mobile Broadband Ku SATCOM - Offers KU on The Move or Auto Deploy Antenna configurations with link speeds from 256kbps down by 64kbps up to 1.5Mbps down x 1.0Mbps up. Service includes transmission security (TRANSEC) capability, as well as 3DES encryption.  
  • Next Generation IP Based Interoperability Gateway - Emergencies, disasters, and other planned or unplanned incidents involve multiple agencies with a wide variety of communications gear. The ACU-5000 gateway enables seamless communications among these first responders. Optimized cables and preloaded settings ensure quick interface of radios, phones, and satellite phones. Interoperability networks can be quickly put together allowing appropriate personnel to talk with each other, all using their own equipment, whether phones, various types of radios or VoIP devices.
  • Unmanned Surveillance Camera - Ideally suited for day and night perimeter security, maritime surveillance, and DHS/DoD applications, the Unmanned Surveillance Camera has an industry leading mid-range thermal imager that can see in complete darkness and through many environmental conditions including smoke, rain, snow, dust and dense fog. Based on FLIR technology developed for the U.S. Military, its “VisionSense" technology combines video feeds from both a visible light (CCD) camera and an Infrared camera.
  • Deployable Base Station (QDBS) - Using proven 3rd Generation CDMA cellular technology with TYPE I NSA-approved QSEC 2700 secure cell phones, the QDBS is designed to provide a highly portable, all-IP CDMA2000(R) 800/1900 MHz network to enable reliable mobile voice and 153-kbps data service in both stand-alone scenarios or when interoperating with commercial or other private networks. The QDBS system is designed to interface with pico-cells and macro-cells to increase coverage areas and system capacities, and supports network-centric operations of forward deployed radio access nodes linked to a rearward switch center.
  • Video Teleconference Service (VTS) - Proactive’s VTS allows conference hosts to connect up to four video and three audio sites with optional embedded multi-site functionality. It provides call speed for each multi-site participant with rate matching & transcoding, allowing participants to view presentations and presenter simultaneously. With transmission speeds up to 2 Mbps, Proactive’s VTS also offers the highest level of embedded encryption, as well as IEEE 802.1x & H.235 authentication for security.
