Alcatel Alenia Space develops tracking system for emergency services

The system enables civil security forces and fire brigades to locate emergency calls from mobile phones and track them to the source, even after the call has been disconnected.

The company says that the service will ultimately help to improve the speed and efficiency of rescues, as well as increasing team safety and helping the emergency services optimize their resources for each incident.

Nicolas de-Ledinghen, vice president of Alcatel Alenia Space’s navigation activities, said, Within the next three years, up to 50% of mobile phone users in Western Europe are anticipated to use a handset with highly accurate positioning features. This radical new scenario will bring new opportunities to more efficiently coordinate emergency services.
