Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom CEO

Gilat Satcom, a provider of satellite and fibre-based connectivity services in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, has announced a new system which will provide high-quality voice connectivity to people working in underground mines.

Traditionally communication with underground workers has been via temporary coax cables which are prone to damage and unsuitable for many locations. Gilat Satcom’s SuricatePRO service provides coverage extension for standard satellite phones extending telephony underground without loss of signal quality.

SuricatePRO takes advantage of Foxcom’s leading RF-over-fibre technology. To enjoy the benefits of SuricatePRO, customers need only to install outdoor and indoor units connected via fibre (up to 6 km). Immediately, Iridium satphone users in the room can access the Iridium constellation as if they had clear sky view.

The company has been providing a similar system to underground bunkers operated by military forces around the world for a number of years. It has adapted this system to cope with the harsh conditions found at many mines.

“Communicating with workers in underground mines has always been problematical. Our system is extremely reliable, cost-effective and market-proven. We are actively reaching out to mining companies in Africa where we know our system will be of great benefit,” says Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom Chief Executive Officer.
