SPECTRAREP

IncidentOne Datacasting Technology

In the rush of an emergency, first responders need accurate information to make life-saving decisions. Unfortunately, valuable time is often lost locating and delivering things like blueprints, hazardous material handling instructions and other time sensitive data.

IncidentOne eliminates the problem of getting information to the scene of the incident and into the hands of the first responders.

IncidentOne delivers any just-in-time incident response data using existing digital television signals. We take advantage of the billions of dollars already spent by TV station's to convert to digital and use those high-power transmitters to get your content anywhere you need it to be. Unlike wireless Internet solutions, TV signals are controlled by the broadcaster, so they will not become clogged during an emergency. TV station's also typically have backup transmitters, power generators and other redundant infrastructure to make sure they stay on-the-air. SpectraRep's technology assures that your information cannot be seen by anyone but the users you designate. It is encrypted and targetable to specific users.

IncidentOne datacasting technology was used during Baltimore's recent Sailabration event to control and deliver secure video, files and priority messages instantly to officers in the field and six disparate public safety command units, including vessels on the water. IncidentOne, a state-of-the-art, wireless emergency communications solution, used public broadcasting spectrum from Maryland Public Television to securely deliver this public safety data directly to emergency responders quickly, securely, reliably and without relying on Internet and cell phone spectrum used by the public.
More than 200,000 people attended Sailabration June 13-19 in Baltimore. The event consisted of 20 tall ships from around the world, 20 U.S. Navy gray hulls including the U.S.S. Fort McHenry and 5 U.S. Coast Guard cutters. Event activities spanned over 6.5 miles of navigational water from the Francis Scott Key Bridge to Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Six command units were in place to secure the event, including Maryland Emergency Management Administration (MEMA) Command; U.S. Navy Reserve Command; Martin's Airport (Blue Angels) Command; U.S. Coast Guard Command; United States Park Police U.S.P.P. Mobile Command Fort McHenry; Unified Command 1st Mariner Tower consisting of federal, state, and local agencies. 
Utilizing Maryland Public Television's state-wide network of television transmitters, Baltimore PD and USPP law enforcement officers were able to transmit live video from fifteen cameras. Large amounts of emergency information such as evacuation routes, crisis plans, and other data were also available for transport as needed to officers in the field and fixed operations centers run by the Navy, Coast guard, Maryland Emergency Management and more. Secure text messaging was also utilized during the event over the MPT signal. MPT utilizes six full-power transmitters to cover the entire state.
