The CellAntenna CAE750 Dual-Band Rapid Deployment Cellular Repeater System (RDCRS) could have helped with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina where cell phone signals were weak or non-existent. Communication was a major hurdle to not only rescue efforts but to the survivors trying to reach friends or relatives outside of the affected area.
Small and light enough to be handled by one person, the CAE750 can be tossed in the trunk of a car and used to boost signal to an area of about 15,000 square feet. Engineered for emergency situations, the device can ensure that emergency personnel and victims alike can communicate in and out of an area that otherwise may have been blacked out.
