First Responders

Easy-to-use, reliable, interoperable satellite connectivity, available anywhere and anytime

Through Inmarsat Government, first responders acquire instant, dependable voice and data services from narrowband to wideband in critically-hit areas where other networks are congested or non-existent.

When a natural or man-made disaster strikes, first responders must stand ready to deploy anywhere on Earth, at a moment’s notice. In those situations, every second counts, and reliable connectivity is imperative to maintain seamless communication services when existing access and core infrastructure is damaged or destroyed.

Inmarsat Government’s suite of mobile satellite communications and managed network solutions have repeatedly proven to be instrumental in helping to overcome the hazards of catastrophes, due to wide area coverage, rapid deployment, ubiquitous availability, reliability, security/privacy and flexibility.

Through Inmarsat Government, first responders acquire instant voice and data services from narrowband to wideband in critically-hit areas where other communication options have failed. This is accomplished by using a wide range of dependable equipment that is as simple and easy to use as a cell phone, and often small and light enough to store in a backpack. Subsequently, our satellite phones, BGAN, Global Xpress and fixed satellite services prove themselves – over and over again – as irreplaceable in delivering unique critical capabilities to emergency responders and public safety organizations, augmenting and integrating with existing networks into a hybrid capability.
