The main benefit of the project is that visual communications over mobile satellite systems is taken to a new level. Faster, better, cheaper and more efficiently than ever, the technology will make possible what was previously not, and lower the threshold for taking advantage of satellite communications as an additional option for solutions that simply must work all the time – always.
User groups whom may benefit include those working to save lives, environment and infrastructure, those involved in law enforcement, safety and civil protection, public utilities and airborne surveillance, to mention some.
We also see benefits for the rapidly growing UAV market, where sending imagery live from flight is an essential task.
The ability to automatically let applications use satellite or mobile networks when available, or bonding two or more potentially different satellite terminals adds to the flexibility and user friendliness of the system, lowering the threshold for connecting applications to satellite terminals.
The ability to connect Android smartphones to GSPS and send small images even at rates around 2 kbps will expand the functionality of satellite phones.
