On Tuesday, June 4, Meridian Jet Center was proud to host the Satcom Direct Product Roadshow 2013 as it made one of its several cross-country stops at Teterboro Airport. The mobile event is a touring road show of Satcom Direct products, scheduled for various regional locations throughout the United States during June and July. Satcom Direct is a provider of satellite voice, fax, datalink and Internet communications solutions.
The road show is used to update current Satcom Direct customers on new products and features, including updates on new mobile applications, maintenance training and troubleshooting. It will also offer free training for flight departments who utilize Satcom Direct products and services. The day began at Meridian with training that included approximately three hours of classroom-type lecture, hands-on troubleshooting and live testing in the Meridian Jet Center training room. An outdoor barbeque followed at Meridian’s North Hangar with the Satcom Direct recreational vehicle on display.
The Satcom Direct recreational vehicle is a 40-foot mobile lab, 2008 Class A Monaco Diplomat Coach, and features services from satellite providers Inmarsat, ViaSat Yonder® and Iridium. Products that will be displayed and demonstrated in the mobile lab include the new SD Router, Inmarsat SB200, ViaSat Yonder and Iridium voice solutions. The Satcom Direct products and services to be featured in the mobile lab include Aero X®, SkyTicket, SkyShield, AeroV®, SD Flight Tracker and FlightDeck 360.
“Having a mobile lab allows our skilled personnel to bring our products and services, along with critical training and troubleshooting techniques, directly to our customers and to industry events,” said Curt Gray, Vice President of Satcom Technologies for Satcom Direct.
The summer road show is scheduled for June and July of 2013, and it includes stops in St Louis and East Alton, Ill.; Wichita, Kan.; Dallas, Texas; Lincoln, Neb.; Teterboro, N.J.; Londonberry, N.H.; Battle Creek, Mich.; Chicago and Waukegan, Ill.; and Minneapolis.
