Reliable, Secure Communications for Defense

Satellite Communications (SATCOM) are ideal for military applications, providing real-time, pole to pole coverage over land, air and sea, with complete security and no dependency on commercial communication networks.

From handheld sat phones to portable carry cases, through to in-motion vehicle internet and communication trailers, Ground Control is a single source for government grade communications hardware and world-class satellite networks.

With regional and global services, our experts can design a system that suits the mission:

  • Secure, encrypted satellite networks
  • Voice, data and video capabilities
  • Trusted hardware solutions from the world’s most trusted communications manufacturers.

We work with military organisations all over the world - Army, Airforce, Navy, and Coast Guard - to enable real-time asset tracking, communications, operational oversight and coordination in remote and hostile environments.

We offer unparalleled access to high speed communications networks via robust, reliable, and portable technology. Whether it’s for tracking a deployed soldier in the field or managing a civil-military operation from the command centre, Ground Control provides military organizations with access to secure and reliable networks.

In order to succeed, you need to rely on a communications provider that has delivered mission critical data for more than 20 years. Whatever the communications challenge, Ground Control can help.
