Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust chooses Omni-Hub
Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust (KSSA) and Tactical Wireless Ltd (TWL) have reached an agreement for the joint development of a backpack-mounted version of TWL’s award winning OMNI-HUB® multi-mode communications system.
The backpack-mounted OMNI-HUB® will provide paramedics with high quality video, audio and medical data links to and from KSSA’s control centre at Marden, Kent. The backpack OMNI-HUB® will operate for up to 8 hours per day using on-board battery packs. Trials of the new system are expected to start at the end of May.
OMNI-HUB® integrates proven technologies: a world-leading multi-band router and an advanced video management system (VMS) to provide communications capability in remote and difficult areas. The technologies aggregate bandwidth and manage the transmission so that the available bandwidth is used efficiently.
