Cubic, Help.NGO to Support Hurricane Dorian Recovery Efforts

Cubic Corporation has announced its Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) business division in partnership with Help.NGO deployed its GATR satellite communication (SATCOM) antennas and DTECH rugged Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, including Vocality Radio over IP (RoIP) products, to assist in Hurricane Dorian disaster recovery efforts in the Bahamas, the company said.

Together, Cubic and Help.NGO were able to establish five SATCOM links to restore connectivity within 72 hours of arrival.

Help.NGO´s Global Disaster Immediate Response Team (DIRT) has successfully used Cubic´s GATR antenna systems as part of its ongoing disaster relief missions around the world. Cubic assisted the organization´s Hurricane Dorian relief efforts by supplying antennas and rugged IoT solutions, as well as training for the response team operators on the equipment.

The first successful link was established with a 1.2-meter GATR antenna in Winding Bay at Team Rubicon´s forward operating base on Abaco Island. The Internet connection was via Intelsat´s FlexGound network, which allowed Team Rubicon, another non-profit organization supporting the relief efforts, to better coordinate aid for supplies and personnel.
