Introducing the ObSaS LINK from Observis
The ObSaS LINK will be officially launched at The 13th CBRNe Protection Symposium in Malmö, Sweden September 24-26 2019.
To see the ObSaS LINK in action, as well as detectors, both fixed and handheld, attached to the system stop by and see Observis on Booth 18A.
Bridging the Gap
The fast development and miniaturisation of wireless networking technologies has made the world mobile in only a couple of decades. The growing interconnectivity of devices and systems is affecting our everyday lives at a breathtaking speed since technologies delivering real-time data and networkability have become inexpensive and available to all.
Similarly, the concept of networking of all tactical assets has become the foundation of defense, security and first responder operational playbooks. Unfortunately, pursuing this capability has proven to be extremely costly since a large number of devices in service lack the networking features. For example, there exists a vast quantity of perfectly functioning detection devices with long remaining lifetime, only missing the bells and whistles required for networking. As a result, networking the assets often means replacing fully operational equipment with the latest versions at a rather high cost.
Enter ObSAS LINK
ObSAS LINK bridges the gap between modern and legacy technology. It connects all your handheld or portable chemical, biological and radiological detectors into one modular monitoring system. You are free to choose the best technology for your needs, be it your current proven detectors and analyzers or entirely new next generation of devices. ObSAS LINK can connect them as part of a full spectrum monitoring network.
The idea of ObSAS LINK is to enable network connectivity to virtually any device having physical data output capability. The ObSAS LINK adapter plugs into the detector’s communication port and connects to the user’s mobile phone wirelessly. A mobile application then displays the data the device is producing and sends it to ObSAS situational awareness system through wifi or whatever available mobile network (3G, 4G, 5G, satellite, etc.) using secured connection.
Comprehensive Situational Awareness Solution
The ObSAS LINK is built on ObSAS platform which is the situational awareness software for the mission control. All the measurement data alongside with unit location is shared with the control center and distributed to other ObSAS LINK units on the field. This way every unit is fully aware of the situation in the field as well as the location of other units. The user can also drop down POI tags on the map from detections or suspicious targets. The POI tags are shared with the ObSAS control as well as other ObSAS LINK units. The entire mission history i.e. the status and location of the devices as well as all events and incidents are stored for later evaluation and reporting.
Modernizing your detectors
ObSAS LINK enables full modernisation of existing detection devices at a fraction of the cost compared to new detectors. The mobile app can communicate with several detectors simultaneously providing rich, visualized view to the data produced by your devices. The map interface of the mobile app displays the location and status of your team in real time improving drastically the situational awareness of the field personnel. If anyone from your team gets an alarm, the alarm information is shared instantly with the whole team.
