SCOTTY Lands Satellite Video Upgrade Contract for SAR Aircraft

SCOTTY has recently landed an upgrade contract to refit six Diamond DA42 MPP search and rescue (SAR) aircraft in Latin America with the latest SatCom solution.  Originally delivered in 2008, the planes and corresponding ground equipment will now provide headquarters with higher quality live video more cheaply and with lighter, compact equipment.  By using the new SCOTTY Communication Platform (SCP) and the Inmarsat Swift Broadband satellite network, even HD video can now be transmitted from the air to headquarters in real time.  The combination of audio, video, and data from these aircraft will help officials make better life and death decisions and support deployed crews in critical missions.


SCOTTY Announces Greatly Improved Beyond Line-of-Sight Surveillance Video Quality

SCOTTY Group Austria, which specializes in solutions for transmitting airborne HD video surveillance via satellite, has now developed a new technology which further increases the quality of SCOTTY’s live video feed.  This increase in surveillance video quality, which requires no hardware modifications to the existing SCOTTY systems, is done by bundling satellite channels to increase bandwidth and thus making SCOTTY’s transmissions even more fluid and stable.  This further improvement in quality makes it increasingly easier for officials at home to make quick and intelligent decisions in crisis situations.
