Integrated Microwave Technologies announced that it received orders from the Pennsylvania State Police to outfit up to seven of its law enforcement helicopters with tactical video downlink systems, including IMT’s ChannelMaster Lite, NVG Access Remote and Omni Antenna technologies.

These new orders comes on the heels of last year’s $1.6 million contract between IMT and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, which included video downlink receiver equipment and installation services. IMT will be delivering microwave video downlink equipment to transmit live video to IMT’s PSRx tactical suitcase or MobilCMDR handheld receivers on the ground. When the transmitters are in range of one of the fixed or mobile IMT receive sites, the signal is converted into streaming video onto the state’s existing IP network, enabling the State Police, the Office of Public Safety Radio and the Attorney General’s office to now view instantaneous synchronized video feeds.

IMT’s “land-and-hand” transmitter and receiver solution gives the Pennsylvania State Police capabilities to support the most rapid response to events, on-scene situational awareness and true interoperability. True interoperability is achieved due to the fact that IMT’s downlink system tactical receivers can be handed to different jurisdictions and disciplines to support joint response and mutual aid. The fixed receive sites are also intended to be interoperable with any other aircraft from different jurisdictions or disciplines with technically capable equipment.

“IMT is proud to continue its business relationship with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” says Stephen Shpock, president, IMT. “The real-time tactical video downlink system that the State Police have purchased will provide a critical tool to aid airborne law enforcement operations state-wide.”

Once installed, the new downlink systems will be used to support a variety of law enforcement situations, including surveillance at large outdoor events, search and rescue missions, criminal and drug eradications and traffic patrol inspections.
