Reducing the Impact of Natural Disasters by using Satellite Communications in the Philippines (IPP Case Study)

This project supported the Philippine government, through the Department of Social Welfare and Development, in improving their emergency communications system by providing them with a complete satellite connectivity solution for disaster response.

The solution to the emergency communications issue was to deploy Inmarsat’s high-speed Global Xpress service along with BGAN mobile broadband terminals and IsatPhone 2 handheld satellite phones to five
regions in the Philippines chosen for their vulnerability to disasters.
