First LTE-over-Satellite system
A new LTE-over-Satellite system designed to provide connectivity to remote regions has been developed by Lockheed Martin for areas without cellphone coverage, including remote locations, boats off-shore, or to provide coverage during natural disasters like hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, catastrophic floods or volcanoes.

The new mobility system isn't limited to use during natural disaster or terrorist attacks, it can be potentially used by offshore fisherman located far from cell towers, remote mineral production outposts, scientific and research stations, and in agriculture operations.

Hotspots can be mounted to vehicles, trucks, or ships to provide additional connectivity. For example, with a vehicular-mounted device, LTE-over-satellite connectivity follows a first responder straight to the scene without a separate device. It can be used on cargo trucks to transmit locational data, shipment information and allow vital voice communication to connect with a central dispatcher.
