    GroundEye is a proven solution for providing operational control over wide stretches of terrain in both time and space. The capability includes high-resolution video capture, large area footprint recording, and analysis at close and long range. The SupervisIR is an infrared Wide Area Persistent Surveillance System (WAPS), which brings unprecedented surveillance and situational awareness capabilities to the user. The technology can be installed as part of legacy surveillance systems and networks, and used by border agents in vehicles or on the ground.

  • Mission-Critical Broadband Services for First Responders
    With Widebridge Cloud™ and SmartResponder™, reliable, secure, and P25-compliant smartphones interoperate over LTE with Land Mobile Radio handsets in the field. This app-based solution extends situational awareness, first responder safety, and value to served communities.
