Automated Personnel Location Systems
With safety paramount, for a control centre to decide which personnel to send to which location relies on them having accurate knowledge of their precise location to begin with.
We have successfully developed Automated Personnel Locations System (APLS) which is extensively used by the emergency services and is accurate to within a metre.
Using readily available communications equipment in combination with wireless networks, our APLS system enables command and control centre staff to view the locations of colleagues out in the field via a live map. The efficiency this system brings to the control centre facilitates rapid decision-making when responding to a time-critical situation.
Our engineering field-force has expertise across both new and legacy systems, are fully accredited, understand the GD-92 protocol and have manufacturer specific training.
Beyond emergencies, the system has applications in any field-based service with a central control function such as logistics or public facilities maintenance.
- Engineers trained on GD-92 protocol and Firecomms
- 24/7/356 hour technical support
- Integration with existing Command and Control systems
- telent’s Command and Control systems dovetail neatly with APLS
In partnership with Frequentis, we are implementing APLS for one of Europe’s largest police services, the Metropolitan Police. The system uses police officers’ radios, combined with a comprehensive wireless network, to provide visibility of officers’ whereabouts – priceless when an officer requires urgent assistance but is unable to direct support to their location.
