Motorola wins contract from Abu Dhabi police force

To provide location-based video surveillance from police in the field back to control room

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola has won a contract from the Abu Dhabi police force to provide a wireless mobile video surveillance system for the force’s vehicles and personnel. Motorola is delivering the solution with its UAE authorized distributor Safeer Integrated Systems.

According to Motorola, the new service will enable control room operators to interact with the video system that delivers real time streaming of video from police vehicles and personnel. Videos sent from the vehicles and personnel will be made available to the five command and control centers throughout the Abu Dhabi and Mussafah area. To aid the police further, mobile command and control will also be provided.

A core aspect of the new contract is the provision of the MotoLocator service, the primary purpose of which is to provide location-based video surveillance from police in the field back to the control room. The service, which also shows all the force vehicles on a map, will enable control room operators and management to have real-time knowledge of what is happening in the field and allow them to respond on that basis.

Motorola claims that the new video system can also be used to connect other applications used by the Abu Dhabi police, including fixed camera installations, automated speed tracking of vehicles, facial recognition and automatic number plate recognition. In future National ID, electronic passports and fingerprint reading capabilities will be added.

Manuel Torres, vice president and general manager for government and public safety at Motorola EMEA, said: At Motorola we pride ourselves on delivering ultra reliable mission critical communications anywhere and at anytime. We hope the strong relationship we have with the Abu Dhabi force grows and deepens in the future.
