Supernet Wins Innovation Award...Rescue + Relief Made Possible... C-COM’s iNetVu® Vehicle Mounted Auto-Acquire Antenna

[SatNews] Supernet, Pakistan's leading satellite network service provider and systems integrator has won the 'Innovation Award' at the 2015 Yahclick Service Partner Conference, held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on February 9, 2015. Supernet is the national service partner for the Yahclick satellite broadband service in Pakistan.

The award was given to Supernet in recognition of developing innovative communication solutions for rescue and relief organizations operating in disaster stricken areas, where other communications infrastructure is not available, or has been destroyed.

The solution boasts Pakistan’s first ever Ka-band vehicle-mounted Communication-on-the-Pause System and was chosen as the most innovative solution amongst nominations from Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The solution also consists of a special kit for rescuers who need to go on foot to areas which are inaccessible by vehicles. The kit includes Helmet Camera, Wrist display, Voice Headset, and Backpack radio. This kit enables rescuers to move within a radius of 1000 meters from the vehicle, and stream live videos of the situation to the control centers for rapid evaluation and response.
