Wireless Broadband Ad-Hoc Networks

himonn4m smallAs a reliable, robust and mature solution for ad-hoc networking in disaster management and mission control of security authorities, VITES offers HiMoNN (Highly Mobile Network more
Node). This product line is well established and successful in the market for many years and it is used by numerous security authority offices, e. g. police, fire brigade, technical support forces but also in the industrial sector.

Due to its performance qualities, HiMoNN typically provides advantages in situations where task forces have communication demands, but where a communication infrastructure is not available, overloaded, where it is not reliable or destroyed. This is, for example, the case during disaster control operations or with major fires or floods. Furthermore, HiMoNN brings a tremendous benefit for the monitoring of critical infrastructures, with major sports or other events, demonstrations or in case of hostage situations and other special operation tasks.

More and more often, rescue operations are coordinated centrally by regional control centres. The exchange of an accurate assessment with the respective control centre plays a very important role for reliable allocation of resources. In cases of emergency or damage, the complexity of infrastructures normally requires further information regarding the condition of buildings and systems at the operation site. The spectrum reaches from connecting control center systems, the integration of indoor radio systems via the transmission of video and thermal image information, up to the merging of measurement and sensor data as well as the networking of medical treatment places on big events or of entire plant areas.

Video data of the operation site - recorded via video drone, vehicle camera, helmet camera or other portable systems, combined with detailed position and sensor data enable precise assessment of the current situation and thus increase operational efficiency. Data is exchanged in real time between first responders, emergency vehicles and on-site sensors, and finally submitted to the operation control centre in bundled form. A head of operations is not required to be on-site for gaining an overview of the situation, but he is supplied with information at the control centre and can co-ordinate the operation together with other task forces, if necessary. In response, information from data bases is made available, such as building plans or safety measures in case of chemical hazards at the scene.
