Mass Notification System Activation by Web Portal via Satellite Communications
ATI Systems has developed a web based version of its MassAlert® software which can control system components with a cloud based application accessible through a web browser using satellite communications, and without using the central station. The remote units, such as high powered speaker stations, are equipped with a satellite modem that allows them to communicate directly to a satellite which then sends the message to a ground station, and uses the Internet to connect to the ATI Systems’ MassAlert® Web Portal application server. The software running in the cloud performs all the same functions as the software in a central station, including activation and keeping track of the status of each remote unit.
Dane County, Wisconsin Upgrade: A Solution For Today and For the Future
Dane County Emergency Management is transforming their existing Siren Control and Warning System into a 21st Century Mass Notification System through a cost-effective upgrade. The new system utilizes the existing sirens, which have been retrofitted with new state-of-the-art remote control and monitoring capabilities, enabling them to make the most of the existing system and save the cost of replacing sirens. The upgrade also adds the ability to send alert messages through multiple channels, taking advantage of today’s interconnected environment for maximum efficiency, and targeting messages more precisely.
Sedgwick County Upgrades to a 21st Century Storm Warning System For Under $1 Million
Sedgwick County, Kansas is in the process of upgrading its tornado warning system to achieve a whole new level of control over the way the county issues warnings. Previously, when the sirens were activated, all the sirens in the county were activated. With the new system, sirens can be activated in smaller groups, so that only the communities being directly threatened by the oncoming storm will hear the siren warning. ATI Systems was able to complete the new system for less than the county had budgeted for the upgrade.
