Harris integrates public safety communications with H-Class
Demonstrations at APCO 2005 (Association of Public-Safety Communications) featured the Harris SafeGuard and SecNet 11 Plus applications in a simulated chemical emergency response to show how third-party applications can integrate with the H-Class content delivery platform to support mission-critical communications for emergency response.
The demonstration will show how public safety agencies can leverage the H-Class platform to integrate high-bandwidth content (audio, video and pictures) typically stored within agencies' existing databases, and manage and distribute the content to users of varying types. The H-Class scales from single-site to nationwide deployments, across jurisdictions and various communications disciplines.
Utilizing the situational analysis application known as SafeGuard and the SecNet 11 Plus product for secure wireless networking, APCO attendees witnessed a simulated chemical emergency response in which pertinent hazardous material data in the form of rich media files (e.g., 3-D visualization, maps, live video and voice) were presented in a multimedia environment for enhanced understanding and better decision making. Virtual dispatchers and first responders received the rich media display on laptop receivers via secure distribution of the SafeGuard files over IP wired and wireless networks. The integrity of the file was maintained by the Type 1 (SECRET-level), National Security Agency-certified SecNet 11 Plus product, which enables users to quickly assemble a network and maintain secure and mobile wireless communications.
