The deadliest tsunami in recent history struck the Indian Ocean region in 2004.


As international help poured in from all over the world, it quickly became apparent that because the tsunami has struck in remote areas, communication was one of the biggest challenges.


But UNICEF engineers are developing equipment that will improve its emergency response.


The BEE combines satellite technology, wireless internet, FM radio and a mobile phone.


Its first field test was in upstate New York, but it could work anywhere in the world.


SOUNDBITE, Seth Herr, UNICEF Engineer:
“What we are looking for is much more than just a computer system is something that is fully functional. We want it to be something that can be brought in a box, set up in an hour or two and work.”


The BEE is easy to use and maintain. All of the hardware can be found on the shelves of an electronics store. It will give aid workers a vital tool during emergencies.


SOUNDBITE, Seth Herr:
“There is a hole in a lot of the developing areas where you will have modern communication tools in most of the cities, but not in the outlying areas… with the appropriate hardware you can be connected just like you were in the city.”


The BEE could work as an electronic companion for UNICEF's school-in-a-box and on a larger scale, a network of BEEs could connect entire communities in times of trouble.


This successful test is one step towards giving a voice to everyone in need.
