The van on display here is one of a kind, and the technologies inside it—including ARINC’s AWINSSM system—represent a giant step forward for public safety communications.
The Honorable Janet Owens will introduce the van. The county, in partnership with ARINC, will jointly demonstrate the van using ARINC's and other vendors' technologies to support statewide interoperability. It is the first Maryland wireless interoperable van and clearly demonstrates how first responders who have grown accustomed to their own communications equipment will continue to use their existing communications devices.
We are creating a mock scenario which will involve the stopping of a suspicious truck at the Bay Bridge and the involvement of the State Police, MEMA, AA CO Police, and MDOT to mention a few.
