Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency Badan SAR Nasional has selected solutions from Thuraya to improve its search and rescue efforts in the country.
The government agency will be installing a combination of Thuraya IP terminals, the Thuraya Integrated Communications Solution from Ultra Electronics - AEP and Thuraya NettedComms from Speakerbus to integrate its headquarters’ capabilities with all branch offices, ships, portable units and land mobile units.
This will enhance voice and data services as well as video surveillance and interoperability on crucial operations at sea. The agency is comprised of the National Search and Rescue Centre, Rescue Coordination Centres and Rescue Coordination sub-division.
“The combination of Thuraya’s accredited solutions running over our robust Thuraya IP service will enable the Agency to connect their branch offices and ships at sea to their headquarters via a private network, to communicate instantly and securely within closed user groups,” said Robert Demers, Vice President of Government Services at Thuraya.
