With a coverage radius of 5 kms, it enables voice and data connectivity at affected sites through built-in VSAT connectivity. Communication can be restored at disaster sites almost instantly and emergency response can be accelerated. The system also aids in search and rescue operations by picking up mobile signals from trapped civilians and aggregates information across platforms and technologies to enable effective decision-making. ResQMobil works during all types of disasters – natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, floods and tsunamis or any other man-made disaster.
