NI designed enclosures for portable deployment of SATRAD G2; or for fixed site, EOC or radio tower installations.
Two models of portable kits are provided. The GO-KIT enables integration of a LMR repeater and NI's Matrix MIS interface for cross-band bridging of a LMR repeater to the SATRAD satellite transceiver and network.
The Wall Mount Kit is ideal for in-building installations to house the G2 configuration in mountable enclosure with battery backup.
