MissionLINK Overview

Whether you operate as part of a deployed force or a single individual, this solution is designed to meet your unique challenges through a simple, adaptable and robust design. MissionLINK operates using Iridium Certus broadband services over a network of 66 satellites that cover 100% of the globe. The solution utilizes this robust network service to provide highly reliable, mobile and essential voice, text and web communications for fixed sites and mobile users.

Phone & Internet

The Thales MissionLINK (pronounced “Tal-les”) is a WiFi Internet hotspot (802.11bg) for any wireless capable devices. It has 3 Ethernet ports and 3 phone lines to make and receive calls from anywhere in the world using standard corded or cordless phones. The MissionLINK is designed to be mounted on any vehicle, or at a fixed location where connectivity may be limited… No matter where you are located, as long as there is a view of the sky, the MissionLINK may connect.

MissionLINK Terminal - Front Panel

The Thales MissionLINK is composed of two main parts, the transceiver and the domed antenna which are connected by a 10 foot (3 meter) antenna cable. Below is the front panel of the MissionLINK terminal.

MissionLink_Front_Panel

On the front panel next to the on-off button is a standard RJ-14 phone jack that will support 2 standard phone lines (with dial-tone). A phone splitter is used to break out the 2nd phone line. Note that any standard corded or cordless phone will operate with this phone jack. Also shown are three Ethernet ports which can support any connected device and VoIP phones (up to 3 VoIP phones for 3 phone lines). The WAN port is for a device connected to the Internet such as a cellular modem or satellite dish so that the end user may have least-cost routing… For example, if a vehicle travels out of the less expensive cellular coverage area, the satellite connection will automatically be there.

MissionLINK Terminal - Back Panel

On the back panel is the WiFi (802.11bg) antenna for up to 12 wireless devices, the SIM card slot, an IO Input-Output port for API integration (not required for normal use), a power port that can take a wide range DC voltages from 10 to 32 volts from any source. The 12VDC power port is an alternate power input port. Right of that is the antenna connector for the 10′ (3 meter) antenna cable and finally a vehicle chassis grounding lug.

Inserting the Iridium Certus SIM card

For service, the MissionLINK requires an Iridium Certus SIM card that provides the account information to the terminal when connected. Here is where the SIM is inserted (with rubber cover bent back for a better view).
