The new IC-SAT100 provides a true Land Mobile Radio experience with an IP67-rated durable housing, large front-ported speaker for loud audio, a top mounted on/off volume selector, talkgroup selector for “no-look” operation, and a field replaceable antenna. Icom offers a large portfolio of Land Mobile Radio accessories for the radio to enhance the customers communication requirements.
The IC-SAT100 operates exclusively on Iridium Push-To-Talk services, and is compatible with the full portfolio of Iridium and Iridium Partner PTT products for seamless, global push-to-talk capabilities. Icom also offers the VE-PG4, a RoIP router to interconnect and manage latency of other radio technologies into a seamless communication.
SATELLITE PTT (Push-To-Talk) is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium® satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, SATELLITE PTT can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks.
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.
The Iridium® satellite network covers the entire earth, including both poles, and can provide wide area global communications anywhere on the planet*.
Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium® satellites, the IC-SAT100 provides low-latency communication, and broader, more reliable network coverage, compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.
The orange key on the top panel can be used for emergency situations. You can transmit an emergency call to preprogrammed users with holding down the key.
The IC-SAT100 provides IP67 waterproofing (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes) and dust-tight protection, making it ideal for use in harsh outdoor environments. The radio also meets MIL-STD 810G specifications. The operating temperature range is from –30°C to +60°C (–22 °F to 140 °F).
