Global Satellite USA, one of the leading satellite solutions providers, is pleased to announce the launch of its SatPhone Optimizer that creates a global satellite wireless and wired hotspot that works with Windows, Mac and Linux to provide greater efficient satellite communications for your email and Internet access. In simple terms, this means for the first time you can now email from anywhere and browse the Internet for a fraction of the cost when out at sea or in the middle of nowhere. The SatPhone Optimizer prevents unwanted traffic via its firewall, compresses emails to improve your data transfer by up to 20 times,  web browsing by an average of 3-5 times that can then save you up to 85% on satellite airtime.

The SatPhone Optimizer can be used with the Iridium Extreme, Inmarsat  ISAT Phone, BGAN and Fleetbroadband and works with iPad, iPhone and iPod.  The device has also been developed to quickly and easily connect any WiFi capable computer and is compatible with any Apple iOS  device (iPad, iPhone or iPod).

“One of the biggest issues on satellite communications is cost and speed.  With our new SatPhone Optimizer, we believe that we can make those issues less painful while at sea or in the middle of nowhere.  It’s easy to connect and weighs less than 14 grams so the device is truly mobile and transportable”, says Martin Fierstone, CEO & President of Global Satellite USA.

Additionally, the Satphone Optimizer works as a tracking device with the industry-leading GSatTrack service from Global Satellite.  It provides tracking data using the GPS chip built into the satellite terminals, including Inmarsat FleetBroadband, BGAN and IsatPhone Pro devices.

The Satphone Optimizer retails at $200 plus airtime and comes complete with a base unit and quick start guide, WiFi antenna for WiFi enabled units.  The  SatPhone Optimizer software for iOS App is available in the Apple iTunes store at:

 High-Resolution Thermal Night Vision with a Color TV Camera

FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced the release of the latest addition to its industry-leading M-Series family of thermal night vision cameras, the new gyro-stabilized M-618CS.

This exciting new M-Series camera offers powerful new features, including:

High resolution thermal night vision – 640 x 480 resolution, along with 2× and 4× E-Zoom, provide clear, detailed images from farther away than you ever thought possible, even in total darkness.

Extended range performance –  The M-618CS’s 35 mm thermal lens can detect small vessels from over 2 miles away, giving you more time to see and avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Active gyro-stabilization – Provides steady imagery, even in rough seas; this is critical for getting the most out of the M-618CS’s long-range cameras.

Color TV camera with 10x optical zoom – Continuous zoom can match the thermal camera’s e-zoom for easy operation when switching between cameras.

Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, the M-618CS provides horizon-to-horizon coverage, and incorporates cutting-edge Ethernet connectivity for easy installation and control. No one else has ever offered all of these cutting edge features at this price point.

The M-Series Control Unit makes for safe, easy, and intuitive operation.
