Mobile satellite services operator, Thuraya Telecommunications Company, is showcasing its latest solutions and products at this year’s Eurosatory exhibition in Paris from June 10-14. Visitors to Hall 5A– B790 can engage with senior officials from Thuraya, who will answer questions on Thuraya’s defense portfolio that includes the recently launched Thuraya Aero and Thuraya tracking and monitoring service and terminal.
Director of Market Development, Government and NGO, Fahad Kahoor, Thuraya, said: “Eurosatory is a vital event for those working in the defense and security arena and specifically in the European market which is one of our priority markets. The portfolio we’re showcasing is a combination of mission-critical, purpose-built products and solutions that meet key sector requirements.”
Thuraya boasts a range of products particularly suited to the government and military sector, including a growing suite of rugged, compact terminals that are reportedly innovative, easy to install and maintain, and are simple to set-up for LAN or wireless connectivity. They are fast, lightweight, compact, easily deployed, highly flexible and interoperable for all operations. The purpose built Thuraya IP Commander or the Thuraya IP Voyager or Thuraya MCD Voyager among others have especially been designed for government and defence users.
Thuraya’s M2M portfolio is also well suited for government customers. The Thuraya T2M-DUAL terminal is a mobile, dual-mode device for superior machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and remote asset tracking and monitoring. It ensures the safety of assets through allowing the simultaneous collection of data from multiple points including location information, data from external sensors and peripheral devices, and input gathered from vehicle or heavy equipment CANBus.
It is designed to allow for the integration of any third-party applications and has several built-in smart features such as geo-fencing, network selection based on least cost routing and internal battery backup. The service supports on-the-move M2M/IoT applications seamlessly on satellite and GSM networks, allowing for optimized connectivity based on the best available network, and is built to withstand harsh environmental conditions.
“Our defense portfolio was developed to meet the needs and requirements of military and defense operators,” Kahoor said.
“We are currently pitching T2M to the government sector, because its unique features can assist them in remotely managing and securing their assets.”
Also on display is the Thuraya Aero, which caters to the growing demand for in-flight connectivity. Developed as an in-flight communications system, it supports steady Internet access, voice calls, text messaging, and real-time, secure data link communication, high-speed data applications such as video streaming for ISR & SAR missions, on board small to medium-sized planes, as well as rotary wing aircraft.
