The QS-100 delivers the latest Iridium Certus 100 mid-band service in a compact, rugged package for global on-the-move (OTM), over-the-horizon (OTH), and beyond-line-of-site (BLOS) connectivity. Suitable for both standalone usage and embedded integration, it simplifies low-profile installations by employing a small detachable, passive, omnidirectional antenna. The QS-100’s modular design makes it the ideal mid-band solution for remote command and control (C2), diagnostic monitoring, telemetry, and voice applications.
When search and rescue workers are in distress they simply press the SOS button on their Solara Flare or TrackLink on their smartphone, their GPS location is automatically routed to WebGate screens carried by rescue teams and helicopters equipped with a NAL Quicksilver satellite system.

All GPS and text messages between mobile command desks and personnel are displayed on computer screens. This includes smartphones and remote command screens using satellite or cellular routing.
DataGate cloud service is modular. From basic low cost Bluetooth GPS and SOS to advanced multi-networking communications. Including anything from GPS tracking of aircraft to placing drone IR scanned GPS locations on map screens.
Worn by team member the goTennaMesh provides a GPS location of each member when polled or when an SOS is activated by a team member. The device uses an internal 900Mhz spread spectrum transceiver with automatic mesh relaying and connects to an Android smartphone. Datalink's TrakLink relays the SOS and text messages over 4G, Iridium GO (satellite), or Solara Flare-DG (satellite).
Datalink's DataNET version of the goTenna provides GPS and SOS protection for SAR personnel with goTenna's automatic relay to provide wide range tracking using a common UHF channel.
Datalink's custom application, installed on any Android smartphone, controls the goTenna allowing for SOS and GPS tracking only. Alternatively the goTenna sends GPS location updates every minute from every goTenna on the DataNET. Two-way text messaging is also a built-in feature.
A WebGate installed in the mobile command vehicle process all data with all SAR team member's locations appearing on map screens.
Data can also be routed from mobile command vehicles to the DataGate cloud over 4G, Iridium GO, or other satellite modems.
Datalink International and its core team have been working together for over 20 years. In that time Datalink has created specialized solutions for a wide range of clients around the globe. The Royal New Zealand Air Force equipped its P3 Orion long range patrol aircraft with Datalink i50 MobiHubs and were later involved in the search for the missing Boeing 777 MH370. The Swedish Space Agency uses the Datalink i50 MobiHub to control high altitude scientific balloons rising to altitudes over 100,000 ft.
On September 2011 Taliban fighters attacked the US embassy in Kabul. A few days later the US State Department contacted Datalink to ask if Datalink could provide a GPS application to work with the embassy’s P25 portable radios.
Datalink delivered a working solution, including DataGate and WebGates, within a few weeks. Providing GPS tracking for all their P25 portables.
In 2007 the London Metropolitan Police anti-terrorism squad contracted Datalink to develop an Android-based, covert GPS tracking system for undercover officers.
Datalink is under a multi-year contract to deliver bespoke variants of DataGate for undisclosed applications.
