In the rural backcountry of Marin and Sonoma Counties, fire stations sit in a communication dead zone. Remote Satellite Systems set up communications suites with push to talk capabilities inside the command centers of the stations. This allowed for the stations to tie into the state office of emergency services talkgroups, linking all the surrounding stations to assist with remote blazes with the push of a button.

San Francisco International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the country, needed help in determining best methods possible to communicate in the event of a huge California earth quake. Remote Satellite Systems helped design and implement redundant communications, by providing multiple satellite networks to ensure that airport personnel had what was absolutely necessary to do their job in securing the airport, assessing the damage and protecting the public in the event of a catastrophic earth quake that hits the Bay Area.

The new San Francisco Public Safety Building which houses both the Police and Fire Departments was built to withstand anything Mother Nature could throw at it; Remote Satellite Systems provided a communications system equally up to the challenge. With an auto-acquire, 1.8 meter VSAT antenna on the roof, the In-Building Incident Command Center is able to maintain contact with surrounding emergency responders and other city departments without worrying about downed phone lines or overcrowded telephone and cellular networks.
