NewSat’s Adelaide teleport facility has consistently delivered world-class satellite communications to military personnel in the Middle East. US-based Proactive Communications Inc. (PCI), has relied on the South Australian satellite ground station to provide camp communications for soldiers in Afghanistan, and has been delivering stable and secure support thanks to a number of factors.
South Australia is a geographically optimal location to house teleport facilities. The state has mild temperatures and low rainfall thereby minimizing the risk of rain fade causing latency issues. No major earthquakes hit the area too, and its location in the Southern Hemisphere provides optimum look angles to the Middle East, visibility of the US Pacific rim, Eastern Europe, and Africa. Since Australia is also an allied country, the US can be assured of political stability, as well as shared foreign policy objectives.
Soldiers in Afghanistan require high-capacity satellite communications for a number of a uses including medical emergencies, camp to headquarters communications, construction, operations, as well as connectivity for resource providers.
According to Marc Legare, CEO of Texas-based Proactive Communications, NewSat has delivered the necessary satellite capacity to military personnel across the Middle East. The Adelaide teleport facility’s remoteness allows it to uplink to a wider-range of satellites required to meet the demands in the regions where military organizations operate.
In places with no terrestrial infrastructure, NewSat’s teleport services makes US Army operations possible - from telephone services to unclassified research, recreations or troops welfare. PCI makes use of the satellite communications to seamlessly integrate camp communications, turning radio signals to IP data streams which are then backhauled over the satellite to the Adelaide teleport, and then back to the military bases in a specific region.
Mr. Legare also expressed his excitement over the Jabiru Satellite Program of the Australian satellite specialist. The Ka band satellites will deliver new-capacity high-demand regions in the ME needed for quality communications.
In fact, worldwide demand for high-quality satellite bandwidth has been increasing over the last five years, especially in the military sector. The Australian satellite communications industry has emerged as one of the global leaders in supplying this surge in demand, thanks to its geographical and political advantages over other teleport facilities in the world. Recognized as one of the leading facilities by the World Teleport Association, the Adelaide teleport may very well be at the center of this leading market.
