Primetech, the emergency services technology and solutions company, has announced it will be presenting a number of key additions to its MultiNet Communications integrated communications solution range at the Emergency Services Show 2019. MultiNet Network
MultiNet Communications - Converging proven technologies where terrestrial networks are inconsistent, scarce or congested.
The MultiNet Network delivers fast, robust, reliable connectivity - Anywhere! Anytime! Any location!
Fulfilling the demand for:
- Temporary or special project networks
- Emergency/Disaster response
- Greenfield developments
New product launches include:
The powerful MultiNet T6 Communicator combined camera, radio and GPS-enabled device
Allows emergency responders to use time and date-stamped (and encrypted) 4K Ultra High Definition video and audio, linked through interoperable satellite, mobile, Wifi and radio systems, providing full comms coverage regardless of location.
- Can be carried on PPE or mounted on vehicles, and is packed with cutting edge capabilities, including push-to-talk, communication across networks, a distress alarm function, TFT monitor and the ability to capture HD still photographs.
- Comes with a portable, secure docking station (IP68) that contains an intelligent data management system which automatically downloads encrypted files from up to 12 bonded cameras simultaneously, with each downloaded file attributed to the ID number of the camera, time and date stamped for evidential trail purposes.
Other new products being launched or supported by Primetech at ESS 2019 include:
- Two new advanced Thermal Imaging Cameras (TIC’s) - the HT-19 and the HT-A2.
The HT-19 is Primetech’s most advanced handheld thermal imaging camera yet. Highly durable and easy to use, the HT-19 combines a high-performance 320 x 240 thermal sensor with intuitive software to help users identify heat sources smarter and safer. The HT-19 delivers unprecedented high-resolution thermal imaging at an affordable price. The HT-19 helps emergency workers find hot spots and heartbeats faster, when every second counts. It allows them to see through smoke, and to visualise and execute plans.
The smaller, highly durable and easy to use HT-2A combines a high-performance 320 x 240 thermal sensor with intuitive software to help you to identify heat sources smarter and safer. The HT-2A delivers unprecedented high-resolution thermal imaging at an affordable price.
- The LUMAPHORE® B40 BackPac, which delivers a massive 6200 Lumens at 40Watt, and weighs less than 9 kgs with 7 hours operational use at 100%.
The B40 BackPac is a potential game changer for SAR teams worldwide, allowing powerful lighting to be man-carried on an incident ground, This supports more effective response under the difficult conditions often experienced by emergency response and SAR teams, reducing the need to use less powerful snd effective torches.
The LUMAPHORE® 400XL is the most adaptable of the LUMAPHORE® LED range. Four high-power COB LEDs in a translucent polycarbonate casing give increased ground level illumination. It has IK10 protection, and is available with IP65 rated enclosure. The LUMAPHORE® LED 400XL emits more than 48,000 Lumens from less than 400 W.
- MultiNet Communications/The MultiNet Communications Trailer
The MultiNet Communications Trailer is a unique piece of kit for supporting emergency, SAR and disaster response operations. It contains a range of high power communications systems, giving emergency services, SAR organisations and disaster response organisations and NGO’s a new option for deploying high powered, self-sufficient mobile satellite broadband-based communications without requiring the use of a full scale Incident Command Unit.
Combined with portable accommodation such as tents, or used in temporary facilities such as schools, churches or local government buildings, the MultiNet Communications Trailer allows a fully featured emergency command centre to be set up anywhere, at any time.
The MultiNet Communications Trailer features the MultiNet multi-frequency mobile satellite broadband system (Ka, Ku and X-Band through one receiver), a self-healing COFDM Mesh wifi network, Incident Command software on MDT's, and an 8-metre mast capable of supporting a wide range of different frequencies and radio systems - UHF, VHF, TETRA - plus VoIP, digital television, satellite phones , etc.
These systems can then be integrated with drones, wide-area incident ground wifi using mobile base stations, and the hugely capable MultiNet T6 Communicator combined handheld/body-worn radios with hi resolution video/stills camera and GPS capabilities. These deliver push-to-talk capability in areas where normal radio and mobile phone mast coverage is not available.
All of these systems, plus a silent running generator, are housed in a robust, waterproof, long-life co-polymer pod carried on a trailer that can be towed by non-specialist vehicles and drivers, both on- and off-road.
User Case study - Kendal Mountain Rescue Team
‘We’ve been using Primetech’s MultiNet satellite internet system for a couple of years and it has proved its worth many times in our more remote areas.
‘But more recently we’ve incorporated it into our new control vehicle with a small modification to the modem Peli-case, introducing a weather-proof RJ45 connector which allows us to have the modem hard-wired into the vehicle’s network for improved connectivity.
‘The new control vehicle has a repeater linked to other repeaters on a network
via the internet, so a good stable internet connection was vital. It’s quite amazing to think that a simple two way radio communication between base and a team member in the remotest of locations is actually travelling via satellite.’
