Our services are divided into three divisions:
We help our clients to find the ideal satcom solution to fit their needs. This can be anything from handheld sat phones from Iridium, Thuraya or Inmarsat to BGAN or portable VSAT solutions. This goes hand-in-hand with attractive priced air-time with all major mobile providers.
ROUGH PRO CELLULAR SOLUTIONS
With the Astron Rough Pro smartphones and tablets, we have a unique solution to provide mobile communication regardless of where you are. Our IP-68 shock- and waterproof devices allow you to communicate in the most harsh environments. And to make it even better: our intrinsically safe (ATEX & IECex) version makes it even possible to call, mail or browse the internet in "Zone 1" explosive areas.
We don't just offer the devices, but with apps like Push-to-talk, Smartworker, Aidoo-Mobile, etc we are able to offer you a complete solution to make your operations more efficient.
Airplanes need to communicate with ground control towers and other airplanes, need weather and passenger information, but also have to communicate with the plane and/or engine manufacturers...
This can be done over VHF and/or satellite communication. Passengers also want to be able to stay connected in the air, and require the planes to be fitted with broadband solutions.
Astron is able to offer the whole range of aero communication.
