Milipol Asia 2017: SuperneT U-Agile+ bridges comms gaps

6th April 2017 - 08:44 GMT | by Chen Chuanren in Singapore


Seeing a gap between military and homeland security communication networks, ST Electronics has developed application-based software named SuperneT U-Agile+ to bridge the two systems.

Its release comes as more security forces are deploying a mix of both military and homeland security forces to better deter and react to threats.

SuperneT U-Agile+ is part of the well-established SuperneT Unified Communication Suite, which Shephard understands is already being used by the Singapore Armed Forces.

The application can be installed in either Android or iOS smart devices, and it allows instant messaging, push-to-talk communications, high-definition video streaming, blue force location tracking and data transmission. All this information can be monitored and used by a web console, in this case a command post.

A key enabler is interoperability with radio networks. For example, police force and military radios can be linked to the radio gateway and pumped to the network through the U-Agile+ server.

Thus, users can keep their legacy communication networks with just U-Agile+ running externally as an engine.

Another unique feature is the mission process management, which digitises paperwork and creates customisable forms for mission reports, reporting defects, calls for resupply, etc. These functions all have embedded information like timestamps, location and job status, which data analytics can use to understand work patterns and operational needs.

As systems integrator, ST Electronics is also offering FLIR mobile handsets with specialised tools like a thermal imager.

'The number of units we can support is limitless,' said Kelvin Ling, solution manager of ST Electronics' public safety and security division. 'It's all highly dependent on the size of server the customer requires.'
