Humanitarian Relief

In addition to supporting AT&T's network, the Network Disaster Recovery Team also uses its mobile satellite capabilities to provide communications support for humanitarian relief efforts. This is accomplished by establishing satellite links to the AT&T network for use by relief organizations and government agencies. The AT&T ECVs (Emergency Communications Vehicles) and Satellite COLTs (Cells on Light Trucks) may also be deployed to provide calling capability for people isolated from their normal communications channels due to widespread disasters and/or evacuations.
