Thursday, December 13, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

An exceeding number of police departments and law enforcement agencies, whose officers spend upwards of 3-4 hours a day completing incident reports and other time-sensitive paperwork*, are turning to smarter tools, such as speech recognition solutions, to help transform their police reporting workflows.

Join us on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 2:00 PM ET to hear why these law enforcement professionals are embracing smarter tools to complete higher-quality reports and move mission-critical information within the CAD/RMS faster and more efficiently – all by voice.

This discussion will provide you with an understanding of:

  • What law enforcement has to say about current reporting processes
  • Why officers, especially recruits, want smarter tools to help with police paperwork
  • Why manual reporting has a negative impact on report accuracy and productivity and can hinder criminal proceedings
  • How departments can speed up data entry within the CAD/RMs and move mission-critical information more accurately and efficiently
  • How speech recognition technology can help increase officer safety and improve situational awareness and productivity on patrol
  • Why embracing smarter technology increases community visibility, and minimizes costs

Learn how your department can make incident reporting faster, safer and more complete by registering for our webinar today.

View now!

Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Michigan State Police Upgrades Deepwater Capabilities with Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

October 16, 2015  | 

OceanServer Technology recently delivered an Iver3-580 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to the Michigan State Police Underwater Recovery Unit. The AUV system operates at depths to 200 meters and includes EdgeTech’s 2205 high-resolution side scan sonar.

OceanServer has sold more than a dozen systems to customers in the Great Lakes Region, including four systems to the University of Michigan and one Iver3 system shipped to Michigan Tech University in 2013.

The Michigan State Police Underwater Recovery Unit has a lot of water to cover with thousands of inland lakes and shorelines on four of the Great Lakes. The Iver platform will allow the MSP team to rapidly deploy the AUV not only in shallow water but in depths of more than 50 meters where towed sonar systems and diver operations are far more challenging.

AUVs allow users to program fixed lawn mower-style sweeps of wide areas with very little logistical support or cost. The EdgeTech’s 2205 sonar system comes with two frequencies (1600kHz/600kHz) to give investigators the option for very fine resolution or wide area survey capability. AUVs are increasingly being called into service for support in underwater forensics and search and recovery operations.

“It is a real milestone to see this critical technology adopted by the State Police, building on years of collaboration with universities in the state. Michigan’s investment in this technology will greatly expand the Underwater Recovery Unit’s deep water search capability as evidenced during the two recent deployments on two open cases,” OceanServer's president Bob Anderson says.

All Iver AUV models come standard with OceanServer’s VectorMap mission planning and data presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files that can be easily exported to other software analysis tools. The VectorMap program can input NOAA electronic navigational Charts (ENCs) or any geo-referenced charts, maps or photo images, allowing the operator to intuitively develop AUV missions using simple point-and-click navigation.

The Iver AUV gives university, government, and commercial users an affordable base-platform for sensor development or survey applications in water quality, sub-surface security and general research.
