Emergency communication, search and rescue system for disaster-hit areas

Because public communication networks are the first casualty in most disasters, first-responders and public safety agencies need a dedicated communication system to be setup and deployed at the site within 6 hours, in order to minimise disaster impact.

RK Telesystem’s emergency communication, search and rescue system is an integrated solution that is perfect for the job. It aids emergency response by providing an independent communication network to first responders, aids in search and rescue by providing mobile location information and connectivity to active mobiles of affected civilian population, and integrates with different legacy radio networks to provide actionable information to authorities seeking a bigger picture. It can be tailored to specific area or country requirements and is designed to work in different scenarios covering natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, floods and tsunamis, building fires, terrorist attacks, and can even be used for Homeland security applications at large venues.

The portable and robust wireless network solution helps create a timely network bubble that’s invaluable in times of emergencies like earthquakes, floods, forest fires and suchlike. Each field-deployable GSM NIB unit creates a secure, private and global disaster response network independently or integrating with a Central Controller. The Central Network provides quick and easy communication instantly via connectivity to fixed-line, mobile and IP Networks.

The disaster response network solution enables receiving calls from around the world with an easy link-up to an IP-Backhaul or integration with an IP-BBX, allowing those affected in these areas to get in touch with their families back home, wherever their home may be.
