MSUA MOBILE SATELLITE INNOVATIONS 2022

Outstanding Leadership in Use of a Mobile Solution

The Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA) recently announced Intelsat as the company earning the 2022 Outstanding Leadership in Use of a Mobile Solution Award for its contributions in providing continuous, secure broadband internet connectivity for disaster response after the earthquake in Haiti in August of 2021.

“With Intelsat’s FlexMove network, NGOs all around the world can quickly deploy to a disaster zone with reliable, ready-to-use, high-speed connectivity. The network supports critical mobility solutions for vehicles and portable connectivity for temporary network access in a fixed location. FlexMove enables an internet connection to be established within minutes without the need for any prior in-depth technical training making this an ideal solution for emergency response teams that need to deploy at a moment’s notice,” says Lisa Dreher, President, MSUA. “Our panel of five judges reviewed over 60 nominations this year to narrow in on the top mobile satellite innovations for 2022 and saw Intelsat’s role in supporting emergency response teams around the world as important to saving lives,” continues Dreher.

 

“Intelsat worked with HELP.NGO, an experienced international disaster response team trained to respond quickly to emergencies when existing communication networks fail, to support their mission to mobilize resources and equipment with the goal of restoring connectivity rapidly. The team quickly deployed to the epicenter to assess the earthquake damage,” explains Joel Schroeder, Director, Land Mobile Products, Intelsat. “Using the latest satellite technology and applications for situational awareness, emergency responders were able to jump-start their response with quick and efficient resource coordination,” says Schroeder.
