Remote Satellite Systems® has teamed up with ESRI, a major player in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) mapping and Inmarsat to bring real time GIS mapping to those areas where there is no other alternative communication networks. This combined effort has resulted in the ability to map the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and to document […]
Remote Satellite Systems joins Inmarsat and the Immersive Visualization Center (SDSU “Viz Lab”) at San Diego State University’s Homeland Security Program in a new partnership to develop and test solutions to extend the availability of time-critical Geographic Information System (GIS) data to remote fire teams fighting wildfires For more information on BGAN communications for emergency […]
Remote Satellite Systems® is proud to be helping the Around the Americas program with their satellite communication needs. Ocean Watch is using an Iridium Open Port system supported by Remote Satellite Systems for their 13 month 24,000 mile journey around the Americas. Around the Americas is a clockwise circumnavigation of the North and South American continents as though they […]
BAY AREA CASE STUDY FEATURES REMOTE SATELLITE SYSTEMS “Remote Satellite Systems International (RSSI), a value added reseller for satellite communications technologies, realized the critical need for a redundant communications system that would allow its customers — public safety and government agencies throughout the San Francisco area — to connect with each other, even when terrestrial […]
Experienced in connecting even the most remote of locals, Remote Satellite Systems was called on to build a custom solution to Camp Mather’s communications gap. Beginning with an extensive site survey, RSSI developed a solution to bring voice and data connections to the remote workers. By mounting a VSAT dish high up on an antenna […]
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.
Remote Satellite has helped make UCSF Mission Bay the gold standard for modern hospitals, building an Emergency Communications Solution capable of connecting emergency responders to command centers and other hospitals across the region at the flip of a switch.
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.
