Emergency Preparedness | Globalstar | Worldwide Satcom

Globalstar satellite voice & data products and services are interoperable-rated and fully compliant with public safety wireless communications standards including: FEMA SAFECOM Guidance for Emergency Communications Grants, FEMA National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP), National Incident Management System (NIMS) and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services HPP/PHEP Cooperative Agreement Guidance on Interoperable Redundant Communications.
The Globalstar satellite system enables users to communicate 100% independently of regional terrestrial infrastructure, bypassing the PSTN and other vulnerabilities in the national wireline communications network. With our satellites in the sky and out of harm’s way, Globalstar works when cellular, 2-way radio, high frequency Ku & Ka bands and land line phones don’t. We all know that can happen as a result of any type of disaster or terrorist attack…or even the threat of an attack.
Interoperability, as defined by FEMA, is “The ability for emergency management/response personnel and their affiliated organizations to communicate within and across agencies and jurisdictions via voice, data, or video-on-demand, in real-time, when needed, and as authorized.” Globalstar’s complete family of products allows you to seamlessly interconnect with any other communication solution (e.g. cellular, Wi-Fi, Land Mobile Radio, other MSS devices) making it the fastest and most reliable platform, providing instant infrastructure.
