Internet Connection: Anywhere - Anytime 

The Star-Runner™ provides internet and cellular connectivity virtually anywhere - from urban roof tops to remote mountain tops, and is more versatile, cost effective and faster than COWS, COLTS or Fly-away kits.

The Star-Runner™ delivers an auto-acquiring portable satellite antenna with Ka-band speeds and cost effective data plans to virtually any location quickly, efficiently and reliably. It rolls like a cart, then easily elevates itself and attaches to any vehicle with a 2" trailer hitch where it rides, wheels up, like a cargo carrier.

Its rugged design and NEMA 4 rated enclosure ensures reliable functionality on remote deployments, while its compact size allows it to be taken into buildings and on elevators for urban applications.

Take Your Star-Runner Anywhere!

Star-Runner™ mounts itself to any standard 2", class 3 trailer hitch, and because the wheels are off the ground during transport, it does not have the registration costs and road restrictions of a trailer. There are no special driver qualifications or modifications to the vehicle.

One person can easily move hundreds of pounds of equipment from storage to deployment without lifting or straining, thereby reducing the potential for injury.

The combination of faster data speeds and unrivaled portability makes the Star-Runner™ an operational game changer.

Whether you need portable satellites, portable satellite systems, or mobile incident command centers, The Pod Runner is the go-to resource. A satellite antenna or a mobile command center for sale would definitely work miracle in your project due to its portability and user-friendliness.
