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. See the Iridium satellite coverage map.
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.
