Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

Provided is a method including providing a text creation interface in response to an execution of a text application; receiving an input signal for selecting content during a text creation process using the text creation interface; uploading the selected content to a cloud storage; and transmitting a text message including route information about a route accessible to the uploaded content to a counter party terminal. If a file capacity of the selected content is greater than or equal to a reference capacity, the selected content is uploaded to the cloud storage in response to a user request and the route information is automatically created and included in the text message.



TWO WAY MODULAR RADIO APPARATUS

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

A two way modular radio apparatus capable of integrating with smart devices to enable users of the smart devices to communicate with a plurality of other smart device users through a common radio frequency without the use of the internet or other cellular connections. The modular radio is comprised of a housing integrated with a radio frequency (RF) transceiver, a control processor for processing the radio signals from the RF transceiver, a switch for switching between the RF transceiver and other radio cards integrated with the smart device and a plurality of anchor units for electronically coupling the RF transceiver, control processor and the switch with the electronic components of the smart device. A push to talk button on the apparatus enables a user to transmit their voice communication to another user and an antenna attached to the apparatus amplifies the voice communications transmitted and received.



INSTANTIATING TALKGROUPS

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

In one implementation, information specifying a geographic area for a talkgroup may be received. In addition, information specifying that the talkgroup is a “warm” talkgroup may be received. In response to the receipt of the information specifying that the talkgroup is a “warm” talkgroup, a satellite constellation may be controlled to continuously light up a control channel in the geographic area for the talkgroup. A request to instantiate the talkgroup via the control channel may be received. In response thereto, the satellite constellation may be controlled to continuously light up a traffic channel in the geographic area for the talkgroup. Subsequently, the talkgroup may be determined to be inactive. In response thereto, the satellite constellation may be controlled to stop continuously lighting up the traffic channel in the geographic area while continuing to continuously light up the control channel in the geographic area.
