The new software, in combination with CX2 and GEOCommand technology, will allow emergency responders to use near real-time data in a mobile environment. The new solution allows first responders to share high-level GIS information with an Emergency Operations Center and other responders in the field using a low-cost and spectrum-efficient solution. Shared information can include geospatial mapping, site pre-plans, and automatic vehicle location (AVL).
On April 30, 2007, GEOCommand demonstrated an emergency response solution prototype using CX2 technology at the United States Department of Homeland Security's Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, Alabama. The prototype successfully integrated a sensor network with GEOCommand's Dynamic Server and Mobile Module software.
The demonstration successfully incorporated data from remote weather and radiation sensors using CX2 data radios with embedded GPS.
On October 23, 2007, GEOCommand, with the assistance of CX2 Technologies, demonstrated GEOCommand's interoperable GIS data communications solution integrated with a narrowband sensor network. The demonstration took place at Tech Fair 2007 in Washington, D.C. before members of the House Homeland Security Committee and the Department of Homeland Security. During the demonstration, GEOCommand displayed data from a neutron detector and portable radiation sensor. The demonstration showed that the solutions offered by GEOCommand and CX2 adhere to the 9/11 Commission's recommendation to create communications interoperability by combining existing frequencies with new world technologies.
GEOCommand President Albert Koenigsberg stated that the company is "very enthusiastic about this collaborative effort with CX2 Technologies. It is our belief that even though there is a significant amount of radio frequency set aside for a public safety network, the public/private partnership will need the proper field data imported from different radio frequencies. There are only 10MHz of spectrum that both the commercial operator and public safety will share in the future."
CX2 Technologies President Michael Rand stated that "with the collaboration between GEOCommand and CX2 Technologies, the CX2 line of low-cost, spectrum-efficient products will provide a communications pipeline, allowing the GEOCommand Dynamic Server Module to give the responder near real-time data on the way to an emergency. The Federal Communications Commission currently has available frequencies set aside for both public safety and federal use, and we believe that making use of these frequencies will help lower the cost of implementation for our target markets."
With the assistance of CX2 Technologies, GEOCommand is scheduled to implement its new technology in a citywide data network in March of this year. The data network, built for a fire department in the Northeast, will provide remote and mobile weather, chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear sensor information; Automatic Vehicle Location; GIS mapping; and site pre-plans.
