Mobilicom executes successful security and rescue proof of concept in Sri Lanka

  • Successful proof of concept (POC) field trial with local security and rescue teams
  • Mobilicom’s MCU-200 integrated into holistic mission management solution
  • Activity underway to promote the solution to other potential customers & nations

Mobilicom is pleased to announce it has executed a successful proof of concept (POC) field trial in Sri Lanka with local security and rescue forces.

Mobilicom was chosen by a local system integrator to the nation as the key solution for the field trial, with Mobilicom’s MCU-200 units installed on helicopters and ground stations, creating a Mobile MESH communication network between all forces.

The successful POC field trial also used augmented reality (AR) capabilities, providing the aerial and ground teams with a unified real-time situation awareness. This addresses one of the key challenges of situation awareness, being the communication between HQ, air and ground and the collection & sharing of unified real-time information.

Alongside the system integrator customer, Mobilicom is now able to offer this system solution and target high-volume project wins in numerous jurisdictions. Following this successful POC field trial, Mobilicom has already began promoting the solution in other countries.

The system solution provides an ability for security and rescue forces to handle emergency events and take critical decisions while observing the situation & covering large geographic areas. As such events involve multiple elements such as a situation room, mobile command post(s), helicopters, ground forces and ground or naval vehicles, Mobilicom’s flexible and mobile technology provides an ideal solution.

The solution has potential across first responders and disaster relief, police & firefighters, boarder control & surveillance, critical infrastructure surveillance & security and coast guard search & rescue applications.

“With the successful POC field trial Mobilicom is now able to offer customers and prospects a holistic system solution with its partner,” said Mobilicom’s CEO Oren Elkayam. “This has numerous potential applications and we are looking forward to marketing an offering that we feel meets a significant unmet need.”
