While most fire and police departments communicate via radio, having access to visual information can help agencies manage and respond to incidents more effectively. According to a 2014 study published by MIT, neuroscientists found that the brain can process images that your eyes see for as little as 13 milliseconds. These findings match other data that suggests humans can identify and understand [...]

Why We’ve Chosen a Radical New Design for Our MDT Software

Public safety agencies of all types use MDT software to respond to incidents and manage emergencies effectively. A mobile data terminal or mobile data computer (MDT/MDC) gives first responders important information about the incidents they are responding to, before they even arrive at the scene. With an interface to dispatch and emergency call centers, the MDT gives responders access to crucial real-time data as the incident changes or progresses. Armed with this information, responders can plan strategy while still [...]

What Hurricane Harvey Shows Us About Emergency Communication Systems

During natural disasters and large-scale emergencies, phone and internet service can be unreliable, which makes it difficult for people to communicate important information. When Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit this past month, these communication failures sometimes prevented citizens from requesting emergency assistance. While communication systems across the country are improving, we’ll explain below how these incidents underscore the need for self-contained communications systems that work regardless of cell service or Wi-Fi. What Happened in Texas? National communications networks have [...]
