CNC Technologies, an aviation technology and wireless communications company serving the law enforcement, military and government markets, announced its selection by the Michigan State Police (MSP) to deploy a state-of-the-art mobile video network to support the department’s airborne law enforcement operations. Developed to speed and improve the ability of MSP to share actionable aerial intelligence, the new solution will enable secure transmission of real-time video and data from the department’s airborne assets to officers and partner agencies across the region.
CNC will design, deploy and provide ongoing support for the entirely mobile video network, which will be integrated within MSP’s Mobile Command Center truck. The system will centralize live video and data streams from MSP’s Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS fleet and helicopter assets, allowing officers to immediately distribute up to four simultaneous feeds to HD monitors, PCs and handheld devices via local WiFi and satellite.
To provide complete coverage across the state’s 96,000+ square miles, the system has the capacity to stream video and data over both cellular and satellite networks, leveraging cellular in metro areas and satellite in rural regions. The system is also the first from CNC to integrate both helicopter and drone video within a single platform with the drone transmission capability driven by a custom, CNC-developed software package.
“MSP has been at the leading edge of airborne law enforcement as one of the first agencies to integrate drones into its public safety and policing efforts,” said Ron Magocsi, founding partner and chief technology officer at CNC Technologies. “We are pleased to assist them on this assignment and look forward to supporting the department in its public safety mission.”
CNC Technologies can deploy any level of solution from implementing a real-time microwave downlink capability to building out a nationwide counterterrorism network encompassing aircraft, ground-based receive sites, imaging platforms and encrypted communications systems for sovereign state clients. The CNC Technologies team also has extensive experience supporting Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) projects funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
