Emergency Mobile Responder Service Package

We understand many public safety organizations do not require 24 x 7 connectivity, so Ground Control has created the high-speed Emergency Mobile Responder “EMR” occasional use service package. Any 10 calendar days of unlimited connectivity per month for one low monthly price.

This can be purchased with or without hardware. If you have existing equipment, we can provide airtime for that, or if you are in need of a complete communications solution, we offer mobile auto-acquire satellite systems including the Toughsat Flyaway and the MCD-4800 “The Football”.
