CCW 2016: Leonardo-Finmeccanica showcases critical comms technologies

Security solutions based on Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s critical communications technologies, innovative terminal devices and command and control applications were showcased at Critical Communications World (31 May to 2 June 2016), RAI Centre, Amsterdam.

Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s (formerly Selex ES) critical communications portfolio is built upon its PERSEUS CSP (Communications Service Platform) next generation infrastructure. PERSEUS CSP aims to bring the features found in commercial networks to demanding, technologically-fragmented mission-critical communications. 

The solution provides personal mobile radios and multimedia capabilities independently of the technology used and is able to integrate legacy networks with new-generation ones such as 4G LTE.

PERSEUS CSP is the central element of a professional system that includes end user devices and control room applications supporting security officers in everyday activities and emergency management.

Leonardo-Finmeccanica also presented its new PUMA T4 handheld terminal. The PUMA T4 combines TETRA security features with innovative applications made possible by the use of broadband LTE networks and an Android-based software platform.

Also on show were the company’s family of terminals including the MR4000. The system supports TETRA and TEDS (TETRA Enhanced Data Service) wideband data services and LTE data routing capability in addition to Wi-Fi access point features, allowing for the provision of short-range, around-vehicle connections with dismounted officers.

Multi-technology communications management is built into Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s operations management platform, which was also showcased at CCW 2016. This platform provides control room operators with superior emergency management capabilities and better coordination of in-field forces. 

The solution was used for security management at Expo 2015 in Milan last year and is at the heart of Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s offer for critical infrastructure protection. Its open architecture can manage various sensors, providing data fusion and correlation and the system can generate and handle operational workflow integrated with professional communications.
