Integrated Communication And Transportation Efficiency – Some Study Cases

    () (Frequentis AG, Vienna)


A critical factor in search, rescue or criminal investigation is time – specifically, the time needed to complete a big number of tasks that occur in any emergency. A critical asset in assisting disaster relief teams and public safety personnel in their mission to save lives and defend property loss is the access to resources data – location of personnel, emergency service resources, streets, buildings. The ability to locate resources, on foot or in vehicles, in relation to the local transportation infrastructure in a specific geographic area need to be considered in a new way of managing emergency situations. The TETRA based systems integrated with a wide range of mapping, tracking, alarming and resource-allocations applications used in conjunction with a dispatcher tool allows operational teams to manage a large ground, water and air-based emergency teams using voice and text communications.
