Gilat Satcom today announced that its SuricatePRO solution for underground and closed facilities has been certified by Iridium Communications Inc., which operates the only mobile voice and data satellite communications network that spans the entire globe.

Gilat Satcom’s SuricatePRO solution provides high-quality voice and data connectivity to people in underground and other closed facilities with the ability to communicate over Iridium devices such as satellite phones, personal trackers, modems etc.

SuricatePRO was specifically designed for using Iridium devices without a line of sight to the sky. The solution provides coverage extension for Iridium satellite phones for users in mines, secure military installations, hangars, closed facilities and remote locations.

This fiber based solution extends the signal up to 6km enabling users to immediately access the Iridium® satellite constellation with up to three Iridium devices simultaneously as if they had a clear sky view.

Ami Schneider, Vice President of Mobile Satellite and Voice Services of Gilat Satcom, said “Since we launched the SuricatePRO interest has been extremely high as it provides satellite communication to formerly impossible-to-reach locations and secure facilities. The certification process was complex and demanding but ultimately extremely worthwhile as it enables us to expose our unique solution to a global audience.”
