Public safety

When an emergency happens, public safety professionals depend on Digital Radio Protocols to clearly communicate the situation and ask for further assistance. Most Police, Fire Departments, or Ambulatory Agencies depend on Digital Radio Protocols, which include TETRA, P25, DMR, and TETRAPOL (among others), enabling mission critical functions to continue when less stable networks fail or are unavailable, such as cellular. Not only must their radios work all over the city, but they also must ensure all interference or jamming is hastfully identified, localized, and reported.

Decodio software packages help Public Safety leaders ensure safe and secure communications. Our DECODIO RUNNER solution combines the monitoring and analytical power of DECODIO NET with the data display and drive test mapping of DECODIO ORANGE , allowing operators to map their spectrum and optimize their networks. By uncovering detailed information through decoding, such as Bit Error Rate (BER) and Message Erasure Rate (MER), and plotting these metrics, operators can exactly pinpoint problems. For example, a new high rise building is built, it could block a TETRA repeater. But using DECODIO RUNNER , public safety departments can identify the block zone and reposition the repeater for better coverage. RUNNER can hook up easily to existing sensors and doesn’t require long system startup times. Don't wait for the emergency to learn that a network has coverage gaps, with RUNNER, Public Safety leaders can ensure more stable and robust radio networks in their area of operations.

DECODIO Localizer can be added to track specific signals or interference for further actions.

RUNNER Comprises of the following core software:
  • NET is Decodio RED, tailored for a specific digital radio protocol
  • Uncover call data, including network identifications and users
  • Standard interface for GNSS receiver
  • Create alerts for signals of interests through automatic detection
  • Optional DF function allows any unit to localize signals or interference
  • Adapt to existing government or commercial sensors
  • Discover our NET solutions:
  • Quickly display call statistics in various pivot table options
  • Use pie-diagrams to easily wade through large data sets
  • Analyze and display capacity time series, call setup histograms, PPT lengths, and many more statistics
  • Display drive test results on a wide range of maps (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, SwissTopo)
  • Control the remote acquisition stations running Decodio RED
  • Use TDOA, AOA, or combine both (hybrid for pinpoint accuracy)
  • Use existing or new sensor networks, fixed or temporary
  • Acquire a wideband RF signal and extract the narrowband signal of interest
