Automated radar surveillance system to locate aircraft or vessels travelling across the Baltic coastline
Motorola has installed a network of 43 Motorola PTP600 series wireless ethernet bridges for the Polish Maritime Border Guard. The network will be used to co-ordinate border surveillance as well as search and rescue operations across 450Km of coastline.
Supplied by local partner Sprint, the links connect 29 border guard points and 11 intermediary points onto a single network, transmitting real-time data to the Central Supervision Centre (CSC) in Gdansk.
Motorola has said that linking to an automated radar surveillance system, the PTP wireless network allows the border guard to pinpoint the location of aircraft or vessels traveling across the Baltic coastline and to monitor activity approximately 20Km offshore. High-speed communication links provide up to 100Mbps of bandwidth, enabling the CSC to receive data, video and images from the border guard points.
Janusz Karpiuk, chief section of telecommunications department at Polish Border Guard, said: Motorola’s PTP600 series has enabled us to install a broadband communications system quickly and at low cost. It is easy to configure and simple to operate, providing an effective way to support our objectives for public safety and inter-agency border management.
