The scorpion Manpack is our fastest deployment system. Its light weight and compact size make it easy to handle and manoeuvre into position.  An advantage of its compact size is that the Scorpion can access transmission locations our other, larger systems simply would not be able to reach. The Manpack system is the ideal choice for setting up coms quickly, anywhere.
