The Cobham Explorer 510 is perfect for use by the media, natural resource exploration or anyone conducting business where traditional terrestrial communication is not possible. The Explorer 510 offers exceptional voice quality and fast data speeds up to 464 Kbps.





New Smaller Size, Same Cobham Quality
