Communications systems are among the most critical when it comes to daily operations
Within the Law Enforcement arena, for example, communications systems are among the most critical when it comes to daily operations, meaning fully-redundant satellite communication is at the top of the list of necessary technology for law enforcement personnel. The ability to communicate in real time with a central command is often among the leading contributors to successful operations, risk mitigation, and public safety. GSE works with leading satellite providers (Iridium, Inmarsat, and others) to deliver uninterrupted communications capabilities even in the most remote settings where other technologies have the highest fail rates.
Additionally, GSE can work with you to equip your vessels and teams with technology that reports at regular intervals on location, environmental factors, and other considerations that must be monitored by remote command. Knowing where all units are located in times of emergency can help with logistical control, and technology can also alert rescue workers when they need to vacate an area while guiding them on the safest path out as well.
When building the technology set that is best for your department, GSE’s team of engineers has the ability to work with your existing equipment, upgrading only as necessary, in the interest of your ROI goals.We are also recognized as magnificent problem solvers, and would welcome the opportunity to help you work through a solution to any puzzle that you’re trying to solve.
Satellite technology presents an incredibly irregular set of circumstances for government agencies in that the costs of maintaining cutting edge equipment and technologies is typically a budget breaker for all non-defense related departments. In many ways, reinvesting in technology is rarely a defensible proposal for most government agencies, who are constantly forced to manage with outdated equipment and inefficient systems. Satellite technology, however, is among the few equipment and facilities categories that gets constant attention, and the reasons for that are manifold.
First, it is quite normal for satellite technologies to have strong ROI, often because they can automate systems and processes that otherwise require extensive man hours and maintenance of existing equipment currently employed to perform the task. These cost savings add up quickly, and can easily justify the budget approval in a matter of a few short years.
Internet Of Things Creates Actionable Data
Additionally, satellite technologies have seen an explosion of growth in the past few decades, and the rate of technological enhancement is accelerating with the commercial sector’s obsession with Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies. The current race to market in almost every commercial sector is the application of satellite-enabled smart devices to business processes in the pursuit of more actionable data, better asset management capabilities, and automation of costly and time-consuming processes. This has created a wealth of opportunity in the public sector to apply some of these technologies to operations that could be more efficient.
Expanded Infrastructure Beyond Traditional Networks
Further expanding the interest in Satellite technology is the ability to enable remote operations that were otherwise too costly, too dangerous, or too resource-intensive. Many government agencies are responsible for vast swaths of undeveloped territory where traditional communications infrastructure fails or hasn’t yet been introduced. Satellite’s global presence offers these organizations the ability to perform their operations without their current dependence on terrestrial networks, again making it easier for decision makers to justify budget allocation to technological improvement.
Making smart decisions about which of these technologies is best for your organization can be extraordinarily difficult, especially because of the influx of availability, and the pressure to make allotments only for those enhancements that will have strong ROI. As a technology partner, GSE will work directly with you to outline the opportunities available to achieve your goals, and we always emphasize the use of existing equipment wherever possible, as the majority of our solutions integrate with technology that has been on the market for quite some time.
