Smart Arena Capital One Case Study – Under competitive award from DHS Science and Technology Directorate, Mutualink technology has created the first fully Intelligent arena in the country, Capitol One Arena in Washington DC, designated the Indoor Building Sensor Suite (IBSS) project. The project purpose is to establish a testbed facility for testing and evaluation of indoor building sensors and associated building analytics developed to improve overall building safety and performance.
Madison County Indiana Interconnects with Mutualink Technology - Faced with heightened challenges due to the pandemic, the Madison County Emergency Dispatch Center needed a way to connect the dispatch center with multiple first responders, including EMS and emergency room physicians. The video below demonstrates the solution deployed using Mutualink technology:
The State of New Hampshire - Mutualink technology has been used to create a statewide collaboration network enabling first responder agencies, 9-1-1 centers and hospitals across the state to securely share voice, video and information on-demand. Most recently Mutualink was used to respond to uncharted public health and safety threats during the recent global COVID-19 pandemic.
Virginia Smart Community Test Bed Center – Mutualink technology is integral to Virginia’s first Smart City deployment and model Smart City Center in Stafford County, VA. The center gives innovators and researchers a place to develop and test sophisticated new tools to improve safety, mobility and communications in smart communities across Virginia and the entire U.S. The public/private partnership is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and aims to foster community-driven innovation that improves emergency response.
New Jersey hospital network – Over 100 (out of 104) hospitals in New Jersey use Mutualink for daily security and for regional and statewide health and mass casualty coordination. Mutualink proved vital in coordinating hospital evacuations during Hurricane Sandy and other critical incidents.
All forms of government, from the federal government to state, county and local governments, can benefit from Mutualink’s interoperable radio communications technology. While many of our clients such as public safety officials, schools and others are often concerned mostly with active shooter technology and panic button systems for schools, government forces and facilities have a great many other concerns on top of threats from active shooters.
Critical voice communications form the basis for federal, state, and local government planning and response for public safety. Regardless of the event or the type of radio connection, interoperations amongst those first responders must work seamlessly. Mutualink systems allow for individual and group communications across any network via cellular phone LTE, 4G, 5G, radio, dispatch console, satellite phone, and mesh networks.
In response to a disaster the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), along with state agencies, state and local police, fire, paramedics, and first responders need to work together. Natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, floods, and blizzards seem increasingly common. People may be trapped in their homes, cars or elsewhere, and decisions must be made quickly about where help is needed most.
Mutualink LNK360™ software coordinates first responder alert systems with all types of other communication systems, allowing police radios to interface with smartphones, computers and other devices, regardless of the operating system. Mutualink uses a standardized inter-radio subsystem interface (ISSI) to connect radio systems of different agencies—such as police, military personnel, National Guard, and other officials from different municipalities and jurisdictions to share information seamlessly. All connections are fully encrypted.
This type of interoperable communication is invaluable in natural disaster situations. It can help with rescue efforts, transportation to hospitals and shelters, distribution of emergency food, water and medicine, and so much more.
While government workers have a full slate of emergencies to contend with, one of the worst-case scenarios is someone with a weapon inside a government building. Some of the greatest dangers are in (and outside of) courthouses, where the stakes are high in criminal cases. Other areas where the chance of danger is greater include city halls, post offices, prisons, state capitols and governors’ mansions. Locations in which important decisions are made that change lives have the potential to attract danger more often. You can’t predict when those in crisis will get hold of a weapon and try to use it in a government building. The best defense is diligent 24/7 oversight.
The Mutualink LNK360™ technology provides a force multiplier by joining voice, video, and other data streams from cameras, sensors, and drones. The consolidated information provides government security, police, and the military with and real-time situational awareness and actionable information via virtual crime centers and/or mobile devices such as smartphones.
At the mere touch of a panic alarm button, everyone in your network is alerted to a possible emergency. Depending on your setup, doors and windows may automatically lock and nearby first responders will be notified.
