Public Safety Communication Systems
Emergency management and federal, state, and local security under the current environment requires a coordinated and timely response. The ability of the authorities to communicate in real time is critical to establishing command and control at the scene of an emergency, to maintaining event situational awareness, and to be able to operate within a broad range of incidents. Wireless communications (including radio communications) is the most effective way of transmitting and receiving information in any emergency situation where the affected area may not have the infrastructure in place to serve first responders, or where such infrastructure may have been destroyed because of the event itself.
ANGRUP offers communications equipment and services designed to serve the authorities for the three levels where emergency communications are typically required:
To Satisfy Operational Needs - Operational needs are the ability of emergency responders to establish and sustain communications in support of mission operations. Equipment used at this level includes portable, mobile, and base station radios.
Interoperability Requirements - The ability of emergency responders to communicate among jurisdictions, disciplines, and levels of government, using a variety of frequency bands, as needed and as authorized. Interoperability is achieved by means of equipment standardization, frequency coordination, and by using systems that are capable of simultaneously cross-connecting different radio networks (VHF radio systems vs UHF, AM vs FM, etc.), connecting radio networks to telephone systems (Cellphone or Satcom systems) or networks’ VoIP circuits.
Continuity of Communications - The ability of emergency response agencies to maintain communications in the event of damage to or destruction of the primary infrastructure. This is especially serious when traditional means (i.e. wired telephone systems and the wireless cell phone networks are taken for granted) are rendered ineffective or taken out of service during an emergency.
