Icom IC-SAT100M

One-to-Many Satellite Communication for In-Building and In-Vehicle Use


The Icom IC-SAT100M is the dedicated satellite push-to-talk (PTT) radio, and is the only PTT radio offering real-time communications at the push of a button between a group of individuals, each of whom can be anywhere on the planet*. The IC-SAT100M uses the Iridium® satellite communication network, which covers the entire globe, including both poles.

* Subscription contracts are required for using the IC-SAT100M. Depending on the country or region, carrying and/or use of the IC-SAT100/M may be prohibited.

One-to-Many Communication

IC-SAT100M users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.

Total Global Coverage, Including the Poles

The Iridium® satellite network covers the entire globe, including both poles, and can provide global communications anywhere on the planet*.

* Subscription contracts are required for using the IC-SAT100M. Depending on the country or region, carrying and/or use of the IC-SAT100/M may be prohibited.

Real-Time Communication

Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium® satellites, the IC-SAT100M provides low-latency communication, and broader, more reliable network coverage, compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.

SKU: IC-SAT100M Categories: ,


Interoperability with Conventional Radios


With a VE-PG4 RoIP gateway, the IC-SAT100M can interconnect with an IP phone, WLAN, LTE, IDAS digital*, analog transceivers and other communication systems.

* Type-D multi-site trunking and conventional systems.

Power supply capability over Ethernet from main unit to antenna (with RF unit)

LAN cable (CAT5e) accepts up to 100 m cable connection (from main unit to antenna with RF unit) without any sensitivity loss and thin cable allows easy wiring work

Supplied multi-functional speaker-microphone

Power supply requirement: 13.2 V/26.4 V DC

IP67 waterproofing and dust-tight protection*1

Other Features

  • Voice Recording function
  • Built-in Bluetooth® capability
  • Multiple language display ( English, C hinese, French, Japanese, a nd Spanish)
  • Integrated GPS receiver shows received signal position information on the display
  • 1500 mW powerful audio output
  • Short Data Message
  • AES 256-bit encryption*2

*1 Main unit: IP54, Mic: IP55.
*2 Communication data is scrambled in the Ethernet section to prevent casual eavesdropping.

Installation Examples

In-Building Use

You can flexibly install the radio and the antenna with only a LAN cable (Maximum 100 m, 328 ft).

Mobile Use

By attaching the antenna on the roof, you can use the radio in a vehicle. The IC-SAT100M has Bluetooth® capability, and allows hands-free operation* while driving.

*A third party accessory required.

Advanced System Examples

Flexible Installation with a PoE Switch and IP Network

Using a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch (for power supply to the antenna) and IP network, you can install the IC-SAT100M more easily.

In this installation scenario, you don’t have to worry about the distance between the antenna (with RF unit) and the main unit.

Low Visibility Installation for Mobile Use

The optional AH-40 antenna provides flexible antenna installation. You can replace the antenna with AH-40, and mount it on the roof instead of the RF unit. When you use a third-party antenna cover, you can cover the AH-40 making it look more discreet.

Advanced System Example with VE-PG4

The VE-PG4 is a versatile RoIP (Radio over IP network) gateway unit, which seamlessly interconnects satellite PTT radios, PMR radios, LTE radios, WLAN radios, IP phone systems, and external devices. In addition to the IP Network (LAN/WAN), the built-in LTE module* provides virtually nationwide communication coverage.

*Service availability depends on the country. Network coverage provided by a custom SIM card.
