L-3 Mobile-Vision Announces PatrolScout Situational Awareness with Video Streaming
Boonton, N.J. – L-3 Mobile-Vision, in collaboration with L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation, announced today that it has released its newest product, PatrolScout.
With PatrolScout, L-3 Mobile-Vision’s industry-leading Flashback™ digital in-car video solution now supports the seamless ability to stream live video. In addition to streaming video, PatrolScout creates situational awareness across the deployed operating fleet to enhance officer safety and improve operational effectiveness.
“Every day, law enforcement command staffs are in constant need of strategic, tactical and operational information regarding their staff and fleet,” said Chief Mike Burridge (Ret.), Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PatrolScout provides a single, intuitive map-based situational awareness interface that consolidates and logically displays critical information from multiple sources to allow activity in and around any vehicle in the fleet to be easily and securely monitored with the click of a mouse.”
L-3’s PatrolScout allows the agency to organize and display vehicles in logical patrol groups, limit and control information access, and find/track specific vehicles. It also enables personnel to easily and remotely view a critical situation. The system provides broad accessibility and a flexible implementation plan that enables video to be accessed and viewed through virtually any 3G/4G network-connected piece of equipment, including office PCs, Smart Phones, and tablets. Additionally, PatrolScout leverages the agency’s existing cell infrastructure and is a modular add-on capability to the Flashback’s already impressive list of capabilities without affecting the existing hardware footprint.
PatrolScout is an integrated solution jointly developed by L-3 Mobile-Vision and L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation specifically to augment the industry’s leading in-car video camera system, Flashback, with advanced video streaming situational awareness technology to improve the safety and enhance the effectiveness of tools for the law enforcement and broader public safety markets.
