and man-portable assets
with rapidly deployable satellite and interoperability resources assure communications independent of terrestrial infrastructure and power. Global coverage and interoperability are achieved within minutes of arrival.
Extended Networks - As the incident unfolds, communities will need to "light up" critical locations such as hospitals and airports. Hastily formed mesh extensions provide voice and data services miles from the primary deployed location of the mobile platforms.
Boots on the Ground - CommsFirst hires, trains, and certifies response personnel from the local community, who arrive within a predetermined timeframe to an incident with the equipment they maintain, upgrade, and continually train on. Response teams are experts in incident response and ad hoc networking, and include former military and first responders.
Training and Preparedness - At the 125-acre CommsFirst Academy outside Atlanta, deployment teams and client personnel exercise together to bolster preparedness for real-world scenarios. Training is available through various means and includes classroom, tabletop, and full in-the-field immersion events.
Emergency Operations Center - When our response teams deploy, 24/7 mission support is provided by our EOC outside Atlanta. Support for all equipment, incident awareness, video, and satellite services, as well as logistics and language translation/interpretation services are all coordinated from here.
Awareness Applications - Situational awareness is delivered simply over the Web with our Awareness Dashboard and Dynamic Directory, enabling quick access to a common operational picture and response expertise and resources that can be queried by location, core competency, and certifications. Additionally, Blueforce Tactical software provides awareness and extended presence data of people, sensors, and services over mobile devices brought to the scene; and it facilitates the secure information exchange among them.
