INTRODUCING ZERO-GAP CONNECTIVITY ON-THE-MOVE
Excelerate launched a new 4×4 rapid response vehicle with the very latest on-the-move communications capability. This new vehicle provides superior ‘always on’ connectivity – keeping responders connected whenever and wherever required.
The integrated Kymeta flat-panel satellite antenna gives responders the ability to have reliable, on-the-move communications and is a game-changer for emergency response. The antenna is small in size and can be installed on front-line rapid response vehicles as well as larger command & control units and everything in-between. The antenna can be used as the primary bearer, or part of a more resilient blended-communications solution.
We are continually developing offerings to ensure that customers have the right solutions to address their converged technology needs. Our in-house R&D department monitors leading edge technologies to see if they can benefit our customers and complement our overall offering.
CONNECTED VEHICLE STRATEGY SESSIONS
The Northamptonshire Joint Operations Team hosted sessions around connecting responders in operational environments and demonstrated how technology has supported operational outcomes for major pre-planned event security and spontaneous complex incidents.
