Strat Importance Webinar 062509

  1. 1. The Strategic Importance of Satellite Phones for Emergency Communication Lou Altman CEO, GlobaFone Webinar June 17, 2009 CONFIDENTIAL 1
  2. 2. Agenda  Introduction  Review  Satcom Solutions  Q&A  Close CONFIDENTIAL 2
  3. 3. So who is this guy anyway? • Industry veteran • Leading spokesman • Tireless advocate • GlobaFone founder CONFIDENTIAL 3
  4. 4. CONFIDENTIAL 4
  5. 5. Total Communications Failures CONFIDENTIAL 5
  6. 6. CONFIDENTIAL 6
  7. 7. CONFIDENTIAL 7
  8. 8. CONFIDENTIAL 8
  9. 9. CONFIDENTIAL 9
  10. 10. And now…. Communications myths…. CONFIDENTIAL 10
  11. 11. Our radio system is CONFIDENTIAL 11
  12. 12. Our radio system is dependable! CONFIDENTIAL 12
  13. 13. We’ll use our cell phones! CONFIDENTIAL 13
  14. 14. It’s never happened before! CONFIDENTIAL 14
  15. 15. Etc, Etc, Etc….. We’ll use VoIP…. We have a ham radio…. We’ve never had a problem with… We have carrier pigeons….. CONFIDENTIAL 15
  16. 16. NONSENSE! CONFIDENTIAL 16
  17. 17. Who wants to discuss reality? CONFIDENTIAL 17
  18. 18. REALITY…… In most major and many minor disasters you WILL LOSE your communications systems: • Landlines – PSTN, T1, T3, VoIP • Cell phones – out or over burdened • Radios – limited scope CONFIDENTIAL 18
  19. 19. Satellite phones CONFIDENTIAL 19
  20. 20. Satellite phones are not: • Complicated • Hard to use • Heavy • Expensive • OPTIONAL! CONFIDENTIAL 20
  21. 21. CONFIDENTIAL 21
  22. 22. Satellite phones ARE: • Highly Reliable • Functional • Critical • Inexpensive • Mandatory!!! Most critical device for DR/BC/ EM or remote communications CONFIDENTIAL 22
  23. 23. Then CONFIDENTIAL 23
  24. 24. Now CONFIDENTIAL 24
  25. 25. Satellite phones are THE most reliable communications solution CONFIDENTIAL 25
  26. 26. Functionality  B/C, E/M, D/R communications  Daily use in remote locations  Asset tagging and tracking  Geo-fencing and alarms  M2M – reporting, monitoring Satellite phones save lives! CONFIDENTIAL 26
  27. 27. Industries  Military, Defense Contractors  Civilian Government  Law Enforcement  Insurance, Fin. Services  Utilities, Power Companies  Oil, Gas, Chemical. Forestry  Media, Journalists  Maritime –shipping, fishing  B/C, E/M, E/R CONFIDENTIAL 27
  28. 28. CONFIDENTIAL 28
  29. 29. What is in a Satellite? CONFIDENTIAL 29
  30. 30. Satellite Orbits Communications satellite orbit the earth at a designated distance and trajectory CONFIDENTIAL 30
  31. 31. CONFIDENTIAL 31
  32. 32. LEO Satellite Footprint • Orbiting periods: 90 to 120 min • 400 - 2500 miles • 10-20 min horizon • 2.5% - 5% of earth surface • Many satellites = global coverage CONFIDENTIAL 32
  33. 33. How it Works  66 satellites  6 Polar planes of 11 birds  16,832 mph – 100 minutes  Provides global coverage CONFIDENTIAL 33
  34. 34. Each Satellite  Linked to four others  Has 48 spot beams  250 NM in diameter  Footprints overlap  Specific spot beams briefly support a call – 10 minutes  2800 NM diameter  All spot beams overlap  Satellites hand off calls as required CONFIDENTIAL 34
  35. 35. How it Works #0 EL L #2 #1 P AN EL PANE N 2 0 PA 1 21 21 09 2 1 1 9 2 2 1 8 1 2 6 2 2 2 1 8 2 7 25 2 5 2 3 3 1 7 2 6 2 7 2 5 2 8 2 3 1 7 2 4 4 0 3 3 30 7 2 9 3 1 3 2 8 2 4 12 44 40 4 2 3 3 3 4 3 0 3 2 7 6 1 5 3 1 4 5 2 9 1 2 48 8 4 4 1 1 11 1 6 40 3 4 3 5 3 2 4 6 6 1 4 1 4 4 5 5 1 5 1 3 4 7 4 1 0 4 4 2 1 6 4 8 4 1 3 6 1 1 4 3 3 5 4 1 4 9 88 4 4 64 4 4 5 1 3 4 7 1 0 4 2 3 7 3 3 3 8 3 1 3 9 9 3 6 2 4 3 4 9 8 4 4 3 7 3 3 8 2 1 3 9 CONFIDENTIAL 35
  36. 36. Cross-link and spot beam technology give Iridium….. Total global coverage! CONFIDENTIAL 36
  37. 37. CONFIDENTIAL 37
  38. 38. CONFIDENTIAL 38

  57. 57. Conclusions  NOT having satellite phones is dangerous  People and assets are at risk  Communications are cut off  Coordination is near-impossible  How do you implement and run your response plan absent reliable communications? So….are you REALLY prepared? CONFIDENTIAL 57
  58. 58. Conclusions  Satellite phones work when all else fails  Must be on site before the disaster  Solutions for you and your situation  Test, test, test, train, train, train  Include Satcom in your strategic budget The Bottom line? BE PREPARED! CONFIDENTIAL 58
  59. 59. Your Take-Aways  Where does Satcom fit into your plan?  What is the value of communications?  What are the most critical areas of your business?  What will keep them running?  Budgetary issues aside, what will you buy?  How will you test and train?  How will you make all of this this happen?  Who do you recruit at your organization?
