Though Gierow was unsure at first whether he could spare the manpower to help set up his company's inflatable satellite dishes, just two days after the first devastating quake struck, on January 14, GATR deployment expert David Hoffman was on his way to Haiti at the CEO's request. Hoffman brought two dishes with him - which cost about $100,000 each - to help aid workers, U.S. troops and doctors to coordinate their efforts via phone and high-speed Web connections. GATR's light-weight antennas can fit into as little as two boxes, and can be checked on an airplane or sent via FedEx to anywhere in the world.
