IC-SAT100 Satellite PTT Radio Update - Available in Japan in the Second Quarter of 2019

Icom Inc. has provided further details about the upcoming release of the IC-SAT100, Satellite PTT radio. This will begin with the introduction of this new model to the Japanese market in the second quarter of 2019.

The IC-SAT100 is Icom’s first Satellite PTT handheld radio that uses the Iridium satellite communication network. Unlike satellite phones, the IC-SAT100 will provide radio service to users with a push of the transmit (PTT) button. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure, such as mountainous areas, remote islands and desert areas. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, satellite communication can provide a stable backup.

The IC-SAT100 uses the Iridium satellite network which covers the whole earth including both poles and can provide wide area global communication anywhere on the planet. Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, it provides low-latency communication and broader, more reliable network coverage compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites. The IC-SAT100 will be a suitable communication tool for governments, military forces, humanitarian organisations, multinational companies, and users that need communication in remote, isolated areas or for emergency assistance.

At present, we do not have a UK delivery date for the IC-SAT100. We encourage you to sign up to our newsletter or our social media channels for future updates.

More information about this model can be found on the downloadable PDF on the side of this page.

Icom Inc. and Iridium will be displaying the IC-SAT100 on stand #1949 at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in Las Vegas between March 4th and 8th, 2019.
