Example of vehicle TECHNICAL DEPARTMENT installation

Secure Communication with field operational team

  1. This feature is based on our own field proven experience and it is suggested as an integrated sub system for mission critical users like special police, anti-drug/anti-smuggling officer, senior guard, etc., only a professional terminal is not enough to accomplish tasks and ensure safety. This is where a complete communications solution is demanded.
  2. To enable direct and uninterrupted communication with operational team/cars in the field, an encoded radio communication system with the agents will be operated from the command and control vehicle, -the Motorola or Hytera DMR Radio
  3. The car’s agents will be equipped with in car or portable communication systems, complies fully with ETSI open standard.
  4. Perfect combination of structural rigidity, versatile functionalities, and refined design; secure communication ensured by AES encryption algorithm
  5. Convenient application development facilitated
  6.  GPS positioning – Real-time tracking. This feature allows the radio dispatch system to track the location of any radio units in real-time. Users have an option to display the location route on the computerized car mapping.

On critical missions, the dispatcher can send staff nearby for check and help when the route of an agent halted.

  1. The built-in GPS module supports GIS applications.
  2. Dual modes (analogue & digital) operation ensures a smooth analogue to digital migration.

Car Security nearby feel of the activities system (Video and Audio)

As the vehicle is operated by an operational team which is inside the vehicle without feeling the activity in the vicinity of the vehicle, the vehicle is equipped with a * nearby feel of the activities system & actually, the vehicle is installed with 4 hidden cameras that cover the and 2-3 hidden microphones for the audio activities.

The middle section of the vehicle will be design as Command Control centre it will be equipped with special comfortable seats and command table, allowing 5-6 commander to participate and command the operation. Full communication means to enable communication with the operational team, 2-3 high resolution 37 & 40 & video screens to display the receiving video signals, geographical maps and another computer screen and allow the commander team to observe –real time – the signals from all the sensors in the operational area e.i in additional a 42 & TV screen (connect to the satellite system) to display the public news regarding the actual news (if any) regarding the & running operation &

Satellite communication.

A satellite communication system will be installed within the vehicle to enable completely inherent communication as a closed circuit between the vehicle and its vicinity and headquarters as well as independent internet communication within the vehicle. This satellite communications system will provide the vehicle countrywide communication from any scene without the need to coordinate or depend on cellular or Radio communication

The antenna

The iNetVu® 980 Drive-Away Antenna (OR similar), is a 98 cm auto-acquire satellite antenna system which can be mounted on the roof of a vehicle for direct broadband access over any configured satellite. The system works seamlessly with the antenna Controller providing fast satellite acquisition within minutes, anywhere anytime. It works in Ku band; the 980 system is easily configured to provide instant access to satellite communications for any application that requires reliable and/or remote connectivity in a rugged environment. Ideally suited for Military Communications, Disaster Management, SNG, Emergency Communications Backup, Cellular Backhaul and many others.

Special measures

Each of the following sub systems is essential for the safety operation and for operational cases which might occur during operation. The following sub systems were designed and integrated in a variety of vehicles and the operational feedback is excellent. It gives solutions for several needs:

  1. Long stay in the vehicle (refrigerator & air condition system)
  2. Power demands for long operation (UPS/ banks of batteries)
  3. Emergency cases (siren, blue lights)


To enable continuous operation within the closed intelligent cabinet we shall install and SELF SUPPORT 220V air condition system. To provide fresh air from the exterior, we shall install an additional small silent ventilator.

Autonomic battery power supply system

To enable uninterrupted 3-4 hours operation of the control and communication equipment within the vehicle, the vehicle will be equipped with 15 kw special LIT/Ion battery systems to allow continues operation when the main generator will stop working all the main operational activity and its other ‘functional’ systems i.e. lighting, communication, scanning and air condition).


The vehicle will be equipped with one Mag light spotlights with a special charger inside the vehicle to enable search and orientation by night.

Alarm system

The vehicle will have an alarm system activated if broken into illegally while parked.

Siren/loudspeaker system and emergency signal The vehicle will be equipped with a loudspeaker (siren) hidden within the

engine. The system will be operated from the driver’s control panel in case the vehicle will have to operate for police missions or a getaway car.

Police flashing blue light

In case of an emergency a police flashing blue light can be activated. It will be hidden within the regular head lights and back lights of the vehicle or on additional lights installed on the front and rear.


The vehicle will contain 8 KW silent generators. The generator will be attached to the vehicle with special anchor straps and an anchor clasp secured to the wheel axle.

Technical Operators WORK STATION

A special operational station will be constructed in the technical compartment enabling the operation of 2 technical operators the maximum comfort work. One work station (min) will be designated for the communication system’s operator whereas the other work station will serve the visual operator & Mission commander.

Portable refrigerator.

The vehicle is equipped with a portable mini refrigerator (12V) for preserving drinks and food. The refrigerator will be connected to the car special batteries.


At the technical sector –the work table will be equipped with special lighting system. The intensity of the light will be adjustable and either blue or red only. For maintenance & install at this compartment regular white led light at the command control sector & install white led light with special dimmer allowing the m to adjust the best light during observing the receiving video or TV signals.

Satellite navigation system

The vehicle will be equipped with a GPS type satellite navigation system that will connect to the main communication system and the unit commands. This system will provide the team easy navigation to the target and orientation in the field in a manner that will indicate the exact location of the vehicle should they require assistance, reinforcement etc.

Power supply board

The main power supply board is mounted in the equipment cabin.

The board contains the following components:

  1. Ground insulation monitor for the generator
