ICOM IC-SAT100 Push-To-Talk (PTT) uses the Iridium network to provide users coverage anywhere in the world. This two-way radio system 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, this Push-To-Talk can provide a stable backup, independent from other networks.
ICOM IC-SAT100 Push-To-Talk (PTT) Key Features:
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 owners can start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup instantly, with just a push of a button (PTT).
The Iridium satellite network covers everywhere in the world, including both poles, and can provide wide area global communications*.
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. In fact, the latency is so low that the delay is approx. 500 milliseconds.
The built-in orange key can be used for emergency situations (located on the top panel). You can transmit an emergency call to preprogrammed users with pushing down the key.
Waterproof, Dust-tight and Durable Body
The IC-SAT100 provides IP67 waterproofing (1m 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.
The supplied BP-300 Li-ion battery pack provides 14.5 hours of operation.
The IC-SAT100 provides secure conversations with AES 256-bit encryption.
Conventional Radios and IP Phones Interconnection
With a VE-PG4 RoIP gateway, the IC-SAT100 can interconnect with an IP phone, IP, LTE, IDAS digital*1 and analog transceivers.
How does it work?
Using satellite Push-To-Talk technology, users of the ICOM IC-SAT100 can communicate with any other IC-SAT100 radios, that are assigned to the same talk-group. The coverage for the talk-group must be pre-selected and coverage areas can be split into different coverage regions.
