Deployables can include Satellite Cells on Light Trucks (SatCOLTs), Micro SatCOLTs, Compact Rapid Deployables (CRDs), Communications Vehicles (CVs) and an Aerostat.
SatCOLTs provide capabilities and connectivity similar to a cell tower. They’re housed across more than 50 locations nationwide to enable a 14-hour delivery window following the initial emergency request.
Micro SatCOLTs, stationed out West during the 2021 fire season, are ideal for supporting firefighters on the front lines. A single technician can deploy the asset in minutes, once onsite.
CVs provide an extra-level of communications support. The CVs provide connectivity via LTE (high-quality Band 14 spectrum) and/or Wi-Fi similar to a SatCOLT. They have an air-conditioned command space for 2 first responder personnel, multiple monitors, a television, charging stations, and a large exterior screen and speakers for briefings. Plus, they’re equipped with a generator that can run for multiple days before refueling; a lavatory, microwave, mini refrigerator and sleeping bunk – for those long deployments in the harshest of conditions.
