What is SATELLITE PTT?
SATELLITE PTT (Push-To-Talk) is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, SATELLITE PTT can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks.
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talk group, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button
Wide Area Global Communications
The Iridium® satellite network covers the entire earth, including both poles, and can provide wide-area global communications anywhere on the planet*.
* Depending on the country or region, carrying and/or use of the IC-SAT100 may be prohibited.
Real-Time, Low-Latency Communication
Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium® satellites, the IC-SAT100 provides low-latency communication, and broader, more reliable network coverage, compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.
Built-in Emergency Key
The orange key on the top panel can be used for emergency situations. You can transmit an emergency call to preprogrammed users by holding down the key.
Waterproof, Dust-tight and Durable Body
The IC-SAT100 provides IP67 waterproofing (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes) and dust-tight protection, making it ideal for use in harsh outdoor environments. The radio also meets MIL-STD 810G specifications. The operating temperature range is from –30°C to +60°C (–22 °F to 140 °F).
1500 mW Powerful Audio
1500 mW audio delivered from the internal speaker provides loud and clear communication, even in noisy environments.
Long-Lasting Battery Life
The supplied BP-300 Li-ion battery pack provides 14.5 hours of operation. Long-Lasting Battery Life
* Approximate. Operating periods are calculated under the following conditions. TX : RX : standby = 5 : 5 : 90
The IC-SAT100 provides secure conversations with AES 256-bit encryption.
