Time is essential during a military operation; the outcome can change within seconds, meaning the difference between life and death.

EMERGENCY & RESCUE

In disaster or emergency situations, such as tsunamis, earthquakes, and terror attacks, rapid response and accurate real-time information is crucial to save as many lives as possible and provide the necessary help.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

For both law enforcement agencies and security forces, rapid response and versatility are the keys to success. The versatility of our system ensures that it can be used for a wide range of tasks.

NON-GOVERNMENTAL

Severe damage to infrastructures and high casualties caused by natural disasters call upon great organizations of volunteers who has devoted their own lives to save others. Areas are often large and unmanageable which fast real-time overview counteract.
