The Operational Area Satellite Information System (OASIS) is a network of over 80 earth stations (terminals) located statewide. The terminals provide broadband internet and telephone access immune to regional failures in the terrestrial network. The inventory of terminals includes both fixed and transportable terminals.
Fixed terminals are sited at Emergency Operations Centers in all 58 California Counties. Additional fixed remotes serve locations of particular importance to Disaster Response; seismological laboratories, California National Guard Headquarters, etc.
A fleet of transportable units is available for both response and recovery missions. The transportables regularly serve Incident Command Posts providing reachback communications from locations in austere conditions. Transportables are also used to provide needed internet and telephone communications in a variety of recovery settings; shelters, local assistance centers, logistics marshalling, etc.
