Emergency Communications in Rugged Terrain

Forward Deployable Mobile Emergency Communications in Rugged Terrain

The key to having effective emergency communications in rugged terrain is command communications capability at the most forward point of operations. This provides you increased Situational Awareness (SA) at all levels of Command and Control.  Having the ability to provide consistent “over the horizon” communications  means covering gaps in “line of sight” communication.  Having this coverage greatly increases operational effectiveness and outcomes.  As a result, you will have right resources are in the right place at the right time.

Attaining autonomous mobile emergency communications in rugged terrain under austere conditions where there is no supporting infrastructure is highly challenging. Hotshots work in terrain where gaps in coverage are common and this is one of the most challenging for Communications, Command and Control.

Rugged Terrain’s Impact on Emergency Communications

The rugged terrain that hotshots operate in is often effected by  communication  “blind spots or dark spots”. These types of  “gaps” create poor communications conditions which puts the mission and responders at risk.  Given the thousands of square miles with this type of terrain, it is nearly impossible to have reliable line of site communication coverage with  existing emergency communication approaches.

Responders who face rapidly changing and ever shifting conditions, where circumstances  change in instant must  maintain accurate Situational Awareness (SA) at all times to ensure  correct tactical decisions are made.  Effective mobile communications closes the decision time gap and is  the difference between life and death.
