Strat Importance Webinar 062509 Strat Importance Webinar 062509 Presentation Transcript

  • The Strategic Importance of Satellite Phones for Emergency Communication Lou Altman CEO, GlobaFone Webinar June 17, 2009 CONFIDENTIAL 1
  • Agenda  Introduction  Review  Satcom Solutions  Q&A  Close CONFIDENTIAL 2
  • So who is this guy anyway? • Industry veteran • Leading spokesman • Tireless advocate • GlobaFone founder CONFIDENTIAL 3
  • CONFIDENTIAL 4
  • Total Communications Failures CONFIDENTIAL 5
  • CONFIDENTIAL 6
  • CONFIDENTIAL 7
  • CONFIDENTIAL 8
  • CONFIDENTIAL 9
  • And now…. Communications myths…. CONFIDENTIAL 10
  • Our radio system is CONFIDENTIAL 11
  • Our radio system is dependable! CONFIDENTIAL 12
  • We’ll use our cell phones! CONFIDENTIAL 13
  • It’s never happened before! CONFIDENTIAL 14
  • 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
  • NONSENSE! CONFIDENTIAL 16
  • Who wants to discuss reality? CONFIDENTIAL 17
  • 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
  • Satellite phones CONFIDENTIAL 19
  • Satellite phones are not: • Complicated • Hard to use • Heavy • Expensive • OPTIONAL! CONFIDENTIAL 20
  • CONFIDENTIAL 21
  • Satellite phones ARE: • Highly Reliable • Functional • Critical • Inexpensive • Mandatory!!! Most critical device for DR/BC/ EM or remote communications CONFIDENTIAL 22
  • Then CONFIDENTIAL 23
  • Now CONFIDENTIAL 24
  • Satellite phones are THE most reliable communications solution CONFIDENTIAL 25
  • 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
  • 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
  • CONFIDENTIAL 28
  • What is in a Satellite? CONFIDENTIAL 29
  • Satellite Orbits Communications satellite orbit the earth at a designated distance and trajectory CONFIDENTIAL 30
  • CONFIDENTIAL 31
  • 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
  • How it Works  66 satellites  6 Polar planes of 11 birds  16,832 mph – 100 minutes  Provides global coverage CONFIDENTIAL 33
  • 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
  • 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
  • Cross-link and spot beam technology give Iridium….. Total global coverage! CONFIDENTIAL 36
  • CONFIDENTIAL 37
  • CONFIDENTIAL 38
  • How it Works  40 satellites  876 miles  Gateway to connect calls  Path diversity, bent-pipe  70 degrees coverage  Handsets see multiple satellites CONFIDENTIAL 39
  • CONFIDENTIAL 40
  • CONFIDENTIAL 41
  • Globalstar Status  Radiated satellites  S-Band degraded duplex functionality  Coverage gaps  Wait times for service  This is as bad as it will be  Simplex data works great CONFIDENTIAL 42
  • SPoT  Satellite Personal Tracker  Has won multiple awards  120,000 since 11/07  $149, $99, $49, $8.95  Retail stores  Simplex network  Great device  Personal use CONFIDENTIAL 43
  • Globalstar Future  New constellation  New gateways, funding, SPoT  June 2010  Backwards compatible  Up to 10 MB data rate  Great deals on hardware  Cheap/free, unlimited service  ATC CONFIDENTIAL 44
  • A NCILLARY TERRESTRIAL COMPONENT:  Terrestar  Skyterra  Globalstar  Terrestar – July 6, 500 spot beams, 60 ft.  Skyterra – launch late 2009  Globalstar – ATC part of new satellites  Cell calls over Satcom spectrum CONFIDENTIAL 45
  • CONFIDENTIAL 46
  • GEO Satellite Footprint • Most GEOs don’t cover poles • 4 GEOS for near global coverage • Voice signal - ¼ sec. for round trip • Point and click • Variety of applications CONFIDENTIAL 47
  • How it Works  Three I-4 satellites:  America, EMEA, Asia  Near global coverage  Global beam covers 1/3 of the earth  19 regional beams - Fleet, mar. mini-M  228 narrow spot beams  Each narrow beam has 630 channels CONFIDENTIAL 48
  • CONFIDENTIAL 49
  • CONFIDENTIAL 50
  • CONFIDENTIAL 51
  • CONFIDENTIAL 52
  • Service Offered  GMDSS - global maritime distress and safety services  Fleet: Broadband, 77, 55, 33, Phone  Swift Broadband and Swift 64  Land phone, land portable, ISAT  Comms on the move – BGAN 727  BGAN – up to 492k IP, 384k streaming  All flavors, all speeds CONFIDENTIAL 53
  • CONFIDENTIAL 54
  • INMARSAT Coverage CONFIDENTIAL 55
  • CONFIDENTIAL 56
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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?
