Ground Control's BGAN Communication Backpacks or "Manpacks" are lightweight solutions for hiking in phone and Internet communication into remote regions. These highly reinforced packs include everything required for creating a high-speed Internet hotspot (up to 100 feet) for any in-range device. The optional lightweight foldable solar panels make no-power locations no problem.

BGAN Backpack

We offer cases for all BGAN terminals, however we have found the new Hughes 9202 is favored because it includes integrated Wi-Fi for any in-range device, and doesn't require any special external devices for plugging in a phone, like terminal adapter for the 9201. And the 9202 is one button easy for getting online. Finally, with all of these great features, the 9202 is 94.3% as fast as the fastest BGAN terminal.

Communication Backpacks Are Built For Extreme Environments
Each pack is constructed from tactical grade polyester with polyurethane coated lining and a waterproof bottom. Heavy duty zippers and pockets are standard. Features also include an adjustable/removable waist belt, adjustable padded shoulder straps with d-rings, padded back with breathable mesh backing, top carry handle, top and side adjustable web straps with quick release buckles, and self repairing zippers. Size: 19" x 15" x 8". Colors of backpack come in Desert Tan, Black, Drab Olive, ACU Digital Camouflage, Digital Woodland, and a light foliage green.
