One-to-Many Global Communications with Just a Push of a Button

IC-SAT100, Satellite PTT

The IC-SAT100 is the Icom’s first Satellite PTT handset that uses a satellite communication network. Unlike satellite phones, the IC-SAT100 will provide communication to a number of users with a push of the transmit (PTT) button.

The Iridium® satellite network covers the whole earth including both poles, and can provide wide area global communication anywhere on the planet. Using Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, it provides low-latency communication and broader, more reliable network coverage compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.
Communication fees are typically charged at a flat rate via a monthly plan and there is no additional call charge (depending on countries or areas used the satellite PTT, a flat charge plan may not be applied or the service may not available).

What is SATELLITE PTT?

SATELLITE PTT (Push-To-Talk) is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium® satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, SATELLITE PTT can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks
One-to-Many Communications

Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all
the radios in the same talkgroup, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.
