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.
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.

Iridium Certus is 100% global even at the north and south poles at full available speeds. There is no place above ground it does not cover... An excellent advantage over other satellite services that have limited service regions or line-of-sight obstructions.
Iridium Certus enabled
The MissionLINK high-gain phased-array antenna works with the Certus network for high-speed satellite connectivity. The new Iridium network is ready to use today!
Additional hardware is provided for fixed mounting of the antenna and the MissionLINK transceiver.

The MissionLink antenna comes with three rubberized mag mounts to quickly secure it to any vehicle roof.
The MissionLINK web interface provides many powerful tools to configure the system to needed requirements. From any connected browser, the interface is located at URL: 192.168.55.1 or type in portal.thaleslink from any connected browser
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).

Antenna with rubberized mag-mounts
The MissionLink antenna comes with rubberized mag-mounts that attach to 3 locations on the bottom of the antenna for easy placement on any vehicle rooftop. Additional hardware for fixed location and rackmount mounting is also included with the terminal.
