A Case-Based Mobile Satellite Internet System 

The portable Flyaway Toughsat mobile satellite system, manufactured by Ground Control, is easily transported and deployed by one person for high-speed satellite Internet service from anywhere. Our performance iDirect service delivers speeds of 5 Mbps down (Megabits per second) by 2 Mbps up. And since the system includes an integrated Wi-Fi access point, this portable mobile satellite dish becomes a multi-purpose hotspot and phone connection point in minutes. Our pricing reflects complete ready-to-go systems, so don’t be fooled by less expensive solutions that fail to include routers, radios, or other necessary equipment in their pricing.

Use or Mount The Toughsat Flyaway ANYWHERE

Ground Mount – Vehicle Mount – Truck & Trailer Mount – All-In-One Mounting Solution
Our Flyaway is more than a traditional Flyaway VSAT System… it’s designed to mount in every location you will find any mobile VSAT system. The multi-functional Fly-And-Drive stabilization brackets work for both ground mounting and roof rack mounts… even rental vehicles!

Since the Flyaway lid is impervious to weather, mount the lid to any mobile surface, such as a flatbed trailer. For permanent installations on top of trucks and trailers, you may purchase an inexpensive mounting kit that is permanently mounted on a truck or trailer roof. Simply remove the 6 nuts that hold the Toughsat mount on the Flyaway lid, and then fasten it to the permanent mount on the truck with the same 6 nuts. Use the same cables and rolling rackmount equipment and you’ve got a fully functional “permanent” roof mounted mobile VSAT.

And since it’s a Toughsat, it can be stowed and redeployed like any of our mobile satellite systems.



One Operator Simplicity – No Certification Required

Once the system is assembled (see video above) operation is as easy as pressing the “Deploy” button. The system will deploy, lock on satellite in about 3.5 minutes and create a Wi-Fi access point for high-speed Internet automatically. It’s that simple!
