[Via Satellite 02-23-2015] Avanti Government Services, in collaboration with Chemring Technology Solutions and Spectra Group, conducted a series of secure cellular communications over satellite trials for defense and security applications in remote areas. The tests used both Spectra Group’s Spectra Hostile Area Deployment Environment (SHADE) and µSHADE solutions to connect to Chemring Technology Solution’s SmartLink “cellular network in a box” through Avanti’s Ka-band satellite system. The companies trialed services including push-to-talk, video streaming, Voice Over IP (VoIP) and Web browsing. SmartLink is designed to provide secure connectivity in remote locations for military units and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).
“Our collaboration allows us to address immediate demand for a number of use cases, most notably with highly secure applications for the defense, security and emergency responder sectors. This capability complements and builds on Avanti’s pioneering deployment of 3G backhaul in 2013,” said Paul Feenan, director of Avanti Government Services.
