Spacenet Inc. introduces a new mobile Emergency Communications Vehicle (ECV) for disaster recovery and first-responder organizations. The vehicle serves as a transportable command post that can typically be deployed in 10 minutes or less and provides converged data, voice and video communications. The ECV represents Spacenet's new service offering for custom mobile emergency response vehicles. Although most vehicles the size of an SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) or larger can be used for emergency response vehicles, Spacenet's vehicle is based on a GM H2 Hummer. Spacenet's ECV can include a fully integrated high-performance satellite communications link; LAN (Local Area Network) communications gear including a digital phone, Land Mobile Radio (LMR) units, laptop PC, and video surveillance equipment; and multiple power interfaces for a generator or other standby power. The satellite link is built around an auto-acquisition antenna mounted to the roof of the vehicle.
