MSV Introduces the MSAT-G2 Mobile Satellite Radio at APCO International 2005 Conference

Reston, Virginia, UNITED STATES

DENVER, Aug. 22, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Mobile Satellite Ventures is introducing the versatile new MSAT-G2 Mobile Satellite Radio during APCO International 2005, being held this week in the Denver Convention Complex.

This new two-way radio was developed to address the increasing needs and demands of public safety and emergency response personnel, which include: interoperability with Land Mobile Radio systems; access to multiple agencies and talk groups; as well as GPS, which enables emergency management coordinators to know the exact location of their people.

Designed for use on the MSAT Network, the MSAT-G2 supports continent-wide satellite Push-to-Talk (PTT) Dispatch Radio and Circuit Switched Voice communications. In addition to providing users with the full suite of Dispatch Radio Service functions and features, the lightweight, dual-service handset offers a GPS display feature, a backlight control for the keypad and display and a headset jack. The compact radio transceiver features Ethernet and DB9 serial ports to enable GPS output and interconnectivity to 3rd party interfaces which extends the reach of traditional Land Mobile Radio technology.

The MSAT-G2 Mobile Satellite Radio is on display in both the New Product booth number 509 and the Mobile Satellite Ventures booth number 207.
