Connected surveillance in Cyprus police helicopters

Connected surveillance in Cyprus police helicopters

Business challenge

In an emergency – response time is critical. Police, fire, search & rescue services are relying on various means of transport and surveillance. However, the landscape of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus consists of rocky hills and difficult terrain making it challenging for vehicles of emergency services to navigate the area quickly. Because of this, in 2008 Cyprus police has established Police Aviation Unit (C.P.A.U), which includes helicopters with primary missions to surveil the coast, patrol the island, highways to prevent drug trafficking, illegal immigration, and terrorism. Also, it aims to assist in early wildfire detection as well as search and rescue missions. Currently, advanced surveillance systems are available. However, state-of-the-art IP Cameras require equally robust method of communication to transfer data from the helicopter to the responder headquarters on the ground.

WHY Teltonika Networks?

Eyescan Security Systems chose the RUT950 by Teltonika Networks because of its connection reliability, security, and ease of use. Also, due to continuous moving and height changing of the helicopter, two cellular network operators must be utilized which is supported by Dual-SIM auto-failover functionality of the RUT950. Finally, Teltonika Remote Management System allows Eyscan to manage and monitor the router remotely and conveniently, without ever having to disrupt C.P.A.U. operations due to maintenance.
