The MCD-MissionLINK requires no user training to operate. Like all of our MCD products, simply place the ‘closed’ weather-tight sealed case on the ground or on a moving vehicle/platform under an open sky, rain or shine, and turn it on – no pointing necessary – and with the case lid closed.
The terminal connects with the Iridium Certus satellite network with speeds of 700Kbps and then broadcasts a Wi-Fi hotspot (up to 300 meters – 1,000 feet) for up to 12 devices to connect to. It runs for about five hours on its internal battery. This portable case uses the new Thales MissionLINK satellite terminal integrated with our proprietary mobile electronics for a ruggedized, self-contained, in-field, user-friendly worldwide communications solution.
100% Global Coverage and Service
Iridium Certus services are 100% global even on the North and South Poles at full available speeds. There’s no place above ground it doesn’t cover – an excellent advantage over other satellite service that have limited service regions or line-of-sight obstructions. The Iridium network uses 66 satellites moving in low-earth-orbit. For more information please visit.
Built for Extreme Environments
The MCD-MissionLINK is enclosed in a watertight hardened plastic Pelican case that is proven to take a beating and keep out the elements. Full operation of the terminal can be done with the case lid closed, so it operates in heavy rain or in sloshing water environments. External ports are inset to avoid breakage with impacts. With an IP rating of IP66, the terminal is dustproof and can take high-pressure water jets from any direction. Besides the onboard cooling fan, there are no moving parts of this system. Cold or hot weather? The MCD-MissionLINK operates from below -22°F to 131°F (-30°C to +55°C).
The MCD-MissionLINK integrates the Thales MissionLINK terminal into in a ruggedized Pelican 1450 case (flyaway case) with Ground Control engineered electronics and software.

What's Inside the Case
Inside the case is the WiFi antenna (1000' range), the power button, the fan plate cover and a toggle switch to turn off the exterior lights (Power LED and battery display) for stealth mode.
Inside the case, in the other corner, is the SIM port for the terminal.
The LAN panel of the MCD-MissionLINK allows a standard phone connection (or 2 with splitter), and two LAN Ports with PoE (Power over Ethernet). Next is a WAN port to connect up a primary Internet connection if one is available, such as a cellular data service.. The WAN port offers least-cost-routing. All ports may be watertight with attached cabling with the watertight connector.
Battery Level Display
On one side of the MCD-MissionLINK is a LED that shows when the unit is turned on. The battery level display stays on even if the unit is turned off (but may be turned off for stealth mode). Next to the display is the internal battery charge port that is watertight when plugged in for full time round-the-clock operation.
