A case study: ACT emergency service agency high-bandwidth mobile radio network. Economic and independent augmentation of PSMB
The ACT Emergency Services Agency, as part of its commitment to continuous improvement in bushfire management since the devastating January 2003 firestorm, has recently deployed a high-bandwidth, air to ground mobile meshed radio network. Primarily, this is to accommodate live streaming from emergency incidents such as bushfire fighting through helicopters (or drones/UAVs).
This investment in capability funded by the ACT is of great interest to the firefighting community, as it presents greater operational capability to manage potential and active bushfire threats through advanced infrared imagery, geo-spatial intel and live, high definition video streaming through cloud hosted ICT.
