BASARNAS SAR teams deploy TAC-PAK and Flexiwatt mobile communications terminals as a pivotal technology in ensuring fast, effective responses during critical missions.

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Communication always plays a vital role in the completion of missions throughout the diverse and challenging Indonesian geography.  Imagine the necessity of swift and accurate data transmission during disaster response within a country with a footprint larger than the US, and comprised of over 1500 islands.  That is the challenge presented to BASARNAS, the Indonesian Search and Rescue organization.

Previously, Indonesian military and humanitarian personnel have found themselves trying to communicate in the midst of total terrestrial chaos and destruction using legacy radio systems and outdated command infrastructure.  Given recent tsunamis, fires and mudslides BASARNAS recognized the need for more command resources in the remote, communications sterile locations - and deployed TAC-PAK and Flexiwatt satcom mobile command and power systems developed by 308 SYSTEMS Inc (

These custom-configured "mobile command in a box" TAC-PAK/Flexiwatt systems were custom-configured to meet specific mission field communication requirements, including linking field radios to cell phones and computers throughout the country.  From the base operations in Jakarta, the TAC-PAK and Flexiwatt comm/power systems provision each remote team with a comprehensive voice and data response capability.

With multiple form factors and satcom data rates up to 6mbps, this TAC-PAK/Flexiwatt flyaway kit combination provided spectacular deployment flexibility, operated anywhere with great efficiency, and is packaged in a rugged, small, and highly portable form factor easily loaded into a pickup truck or similar deploying vehicle.  This effectively turned any local vehicle into a "Mobile Command Center."

This extensive Mobile Command/Flexiwatt lineup represents the latest state-of-the-art high bandwidth mobile command /communication solutions from 308 SYSTEMS Inc.  

Additional products such as the SATPAK wireless relay systems(, can be combined to ensure teams or organizations have reliable satcom and radio signal access from anywhere, including previously signal blocked areas such as mountain valleys, tunnels and urban canyon buildings.
