Aid & Emergency

As the frequency of major disasters, health crises and conflicts globally grows apace, so does the demand for humanitarian assistance.

With loss of electricity, shortage of food and water supplies, and human lives at risk, aid agencies and other non-governmental organisations face a lack of basic security and secure communications, which hinders their success and can ultimately result in the loss of life.

To overcome this problem, Spectra has developed a number of secure, robust and reliable communications solutions, to aid coordination and protect all field workers in unstable environments.


for Aid & Emergency

You need to deploy personnel to a humanitarian disaster quickly. Time is of the essence. The local situation is unstable and communications links are precarious. How do you ensure you can co-ordinate and communicate with your outreach staff without delaying their deployment?

SlingShot is a small and lightweight unit that attaches to existing VHF and UHF radios, enabling users to maintain real-time Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) communications in all situations and locations. With flexible airtime pricing structures and minimal training, it could make the difference in the vital early days of your response.


for Aid & Emergency

You have reached the relief area and need to set-up camp and install a communications hub. What you need is a system that can utilise whatever infrastructure is available but is flexible enough to add satellite communications when other bearers aren’t available.

Teams using SHADE (The Spectra Hostile Area Deployment Environment) can rapidly deploy to remote or hostile areas knowing that their voice and data communications requirements are fully catered for, enabling them to concentrate on their main tasks. SHADE is portable, pre-configured and is supported by highly skilled engineers in the 24/7 NOC (Network Operations Centre)
