Firetide, Safety Vision to equip MBTA

Posted on September 11, 2007

Firetide Inc. and Safety Vision L.P. have partnered to provide wireless surveillance and security applications for mass transit, law enforcement and student transportation sectors, with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) among the first to implement the new integrated wireless surveillance system. 


The $1.4 million project, partially funded by a Department of Homeland Security grant, calls for installation of onboard surveillance systems on 155 new MBTA buses. The system enables transmission of live video feeds to laptops in MBTA police officers' networked vehicles, allowing first responders to view an onboard incident as it unfolds, in real time.  


Firetide provides the wireless video network portion of the project, operating in the 4.9 GHz spectrum, which is designated by the FCC for public safety and provides interference-free, secure connectivity for first responders.  


In addition to supplying onboard, mobile-rated cameras and video recorders, Safety Vision provides an intuitive video management application, which delivers high-resolution live video, and works seamlessly with the Firetide mesh network.
