Motorola has introduced a small gadget that adds satellite communication to smartphones.

If you want to access the satellite communication system and location monitoring and emergency services without getting new devices like the one Cat brand has just introduced, then Motorola’s latest gadget is for you.

Motorola Defy Satellite Link, which measures 70 x 50 x 11 mm and weighs only 70 grams, is equipped with a MediaTek NTN modem to support the new Bullitt Satellite Connect satellite communication system. This gadget has built-in GPS and supports electronic SIM card.

Defy connects to iPhone (with iOS 14 or later) and Android phones (with Android 10 or later) via Bluetooth 5.1 and is highly resistant thanks to IP68 and MIL-STD-810H certifications.

The new Motorola gadget is equipped with a special strap so you can wear it around your neck or attach it to your belt. Motorola Defy Satellite Link, which is equipped with a 600 mAh battery, is easily compatible with different phones. This device has a physical key for emergencies and monitors the location.

The new Bullitt Satellite Connect (or BSC) satellite system relies on Inmarsat and EchoStar geostationary satellites managed by Skylo (a Bullitt business partner). A text message with up to 140 characters and exact location details is sent to the nearest geostationary satellite via the free Bullitt Satellite Messenger app on a phone connected to the Motorola Defy Satellite Link, and then reaches one of Skylo’s ground stations. The message in question is then sent to the recipient through a cellular network or Wi-Fi internet connection.

After receiving the message in the form of SMS, the recipient will receive another message to install the Bullitt Satellite Messenger application. If the recipient wants to send you a message, he is obliged to install this application. After the message is sent through Wi-Fi connection or cellular network, it reaches the ground stations, then it is sent to the satellite, and finally the first person receives the message from the satellite on his phone.

The Motorola Defy Satellite Link gadget will be released in the second quarter of 2023 at a price of $99. The package includes one year of Essential subscription service (up to 30 satellite messages per month) for $149.
