[Satellite TODAY 10-01-09] U.K. satellite and wireless data supplier Excelerate Technology unveiled the first of its next-generation rapid response vehicles, the company announced Sept. 30.
    The vehicle is a Land Rover Discover equipped with emergency service communication technology, including a transportable satellite, private GSM, VoIP, wireless network, CCTV and video streaming.
    The vehicle also has been fitted with four drop-down touch screens, COFDM body worn camera kits and a mobile Broadband Global Area Network solution to deliver high-speed broadband access on the move.
