A great day showcasing a range of satellite terminals and proving capabilities to visitors at GRC, from the small form Swarm, Tampa Microwave Manpack and Satcube to the Tampa 1.3m and Paradigm Connect100. We also demonstrated GRC’s own SCYTALE suite and our Mission Modules attached to Thuraya Telecom IP+, providing RoIP.
Huge thanks to Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce and Visit Herefordshire for a superb networking day at the beautiful Oldcastle in Colwall. A fantastic event and a great chance to meet fellow Herefordshire and Worcestershire businesses... where better to discuss cloud security than under skies like these!
GRC are extremely proud to sponsor Hereford Lads Club Under 11's Team - The Panthers. It was great to meet players Zach and Tom, who delivered a superb presentation about their team and football ambitions. Wishing The Panthers the best of luck in their upcoming games and looking forward to seeing them among the World Cup squad in a few years time!

The first pair of Satcube Terminals on Intelsat airtime and GRC Scytale Mini+ have been delivered! This innovative satcom terminal weighs only 8KG, will set up in <10mins, yet delivers speeds of up to 20Mbps via HTS satellite. Combined with the Scytale Mini+, this duo will provide secure, high-speed VoIP and Data communication to the most remote areas on the planet!
Current Terminals of choice for quick move deployments where size, weight and power are key requirements. The Tampa Microwave Manpack 65 and Satcube AB are one-man carry satcom terminals and are able to be established <10 minutes on arrival. Combined with the GRC SCYTALE baseband units, they provide IP Voice and Data at high bandwidth with 99.5% availability.
We don’t just provide hardware, airtime and remote support… our engineers, who are always ready for deployments, have been completing repairs and training with users operating in Lebanon, maintaining critical communications with VT iDirect satcom kit operating on Avanti Communications airtime in one of the region’s most challenging environments.

Day 4 of the Hoplite Charity Bike Ride and Team GRC have covered another 50 miles!
