Real-time tracking of employees and assets
Asset tracking helps your organization keep track of your vehicles and personnel as they move across your operational area, to keep them safe and to keep business and services running smoothly and more efficiently.
Loss of signal means loss of whereabouts
Dispatchers in organizations deploying vehicles across large operational areas need to know where their vehicles and personnel are at all times.
Today, most radios have a built-in GPS function that transmits the radio’s position at regular intervals. However, as soon as a vehicle ventures outside of radio coverage, its radio’s GPS location disappears too, leaving the dispatcher in the dark – and an employee unaccounted for and potentially in danger.
Complete data coverage for complete overview
PRISM PTT+ from Cobham Satcom connects all your organization’s vehicles in a unified, resilient IP-based network. The in-vehicle Explorer Mobile Gateway features GPS, allowing your organization to track employees and assets in real-time. The system uses both LTE networks and satellite to ensure complete coverage of your operational area, so your field crews are covered at all times.
Integrates with dispatch map
The solution is controlled and operated through the PRISM Portal, which also features a map showing the location of each vehicle. Location data can also be integrated with your organization’s dispatch map, showing each vehicle’s position in relation to your other fixed and mobile assets.
Keep track of your hardware
With a digital radio solution from Cobham Satcom, you can have access to all the data generated by vehicle equipment, giving your organization full overview over all your assets. Every device page in the PRISM Portal shows what each vehicle’s modem is connected to, right down to the serial numbers. If a vehicle is stolen, you can pinpoint its location and disable its access to your network.
With real time data tracking of vehicles, utilities and emergency agency dispatchers can always see which vehicle is closest to a location requiring urgent attention. This allows for improved mission planning and execution, as well as fast and agile reactions to emergencies or unexpected events.
Optional extra: Geo Fencing
If your operational area is subdivided into smaller areas using different channels for radiocommunication, we can use geo fencing to trigger a switch to the relevant channels whenever one of your vehicles crosses into a new area.
Optional extra: Scenario Replays
Collecting and connecting all your organization’s vehicles, personnel, and voice and data communications into one unified, IP-based network also enables scenario replays for training or legal purposes. As an add-on function, all GPS-positions and every voice and data transmission can be recorded and timestamped in the system’s master data. This allows a precise breakdown and analysis of who did what, when and where in case of an accident or a near miss event, NOTE: Local legislation may prohibit recording data like this.
