PLP-H - An Advanced Iridium-Based Soldier C4 Device for Search and Rescue Operations by Trilogocal and Gilat Satcom
Trilogical Technologies, showcased a range of accurate, modular C4I solutions for defense, security, law enforcement, and first responders at Eurosatory, June 11-15, Paris.
Trilogical's solutions - incorporating advanced hardware and software - are comprised of a command & control platform (C4Harmony), integrated with field units that are placed on a person, vehicle, or asset that is being tracked. The company's defense solutions - which have all been extensively field-proven - include closed systems for small operating units or open systems that integrate with existing communications systems (e.g., the IDF's DAP -Digital Army Program).
The company highlighted two solutions for military and first responder applications - an advanced C4 Soldier System – PLP-H, and C4Patrol - a First Responder Vehicle Solution for the effective management of operations in the field.
Iridium-Based Soldier C4 Device (PLP-H) – Continuous visibility of soldier's location
Together with Gilat Satcom, Trilogical launched PLP-H - an advanced iridium-based Soldier C4 device for Search and Rescue operations. The PLP-H unit is a tracking, navigation, and communication device ensuring that field personnel always know their exact location, and that their exact location is always visible to the back-office, regardless of geographic location or communication constraints. The unit provides cutting-edge satellite and GPRS technology in addition to two-way messaging and navigation capabilities. Fast and accurate tracking is provided by iridium-based satellite and cellular communication, roaming between them to control expenses. The unit enables field personnel to call for assistance by activating a distress signal, transmit messages via encrypted two-way messaging, mark points of interest for later reference, and receive encrypted waypoints and routing instructions from the back-office.
The other highlighted solution was Trilogical's C4Patrol for First Responders. The solution is a comprehensive management tool that improves officer safety, helps resolve complaints, and preserves the chain of evidence. The advanced Control & Monitoring system for military and police patrols automates law enforcement fleets. Among its features are a smart army/police dispatching tool, an event/task-handling mechanism, video streaming in/out view, and automated reporting and analysis.
In both solutions, all the data collected from the outlying units is transmitted to the command & control center via flexible communications, covering a range of technologies, including cellular, satellite and wireless (VHF, Wi-Fi).
