Polaris Wireless partnered with Mark43, a cloud-based public-safety software provider, to integrate 3D location technology into CAD systems for public-safety organizations. This enables police and fire departments to track personnel and assets with pinpoint location, including indoors and in high-rise buildings, with floor-level accuracy.
This level of granularity in location tracking delivers enhanced situational awareness and improved operational efficiency, which in turn helps save lives and additional costs. Mark43 CAD powers field response with a mobile unit view optimized for laptop or tablet use in vehicle. Mark43 works with police and fire departments to make sure web-connected units stay mobile in the cloud.
“Our 3D location is enabling new use cases in public-safety applications with our partnership and integration into Mark43 CAD systems,” said Amir Sattar, senior vice president of operations for Polaris Wireless. “Dispatching police and firefighters to the precise location, including the correct floor number, represents a major advancement for public safety and a significant benefit for the communities they serve.”
By operating independently, or over the top, of wireless carrier networks, the platform enables applications to locate any device on any network, an important consideration when police and fire departments operate devices across several networks, a Polaris statement said.
