Use Case: Missing person

Searching for missing person in the wilderness is challenging for many reasons, like a large area to be covered, lack of visibility, hard to pass terrain and challenges in coordinating search teams. And seconds count. 

NSC3™ situational awareness system can assist search missions in multiple ways.  

  • Create a task  to coordinate the work and communication of all personnel involved. Volunteers and first responders can use NSC3 in their own devices, without needing specialized hardware. Set marked areas for teams to search through and see every person, drone, and vehicle on the map in real time in the office and on the field. Every mobile phone can be used as a radio device with the push-to-talk feature to the entire task force. 
  • The NSC3™ platform offers a user-friendly interface to avoid any training and allow a fast deployment in their existing equipment.  
  • Use drones to cover large and hard to reach areas quickly. Set up an area for drones to search through in a systematic manner. Share the drone view and location information with teams on the field to see the real time situation.  Drone devices with thermal camera features are a useful aid in finding a lost person in hard-to-reach areas like the middle of the forest. The NSC3™ Drone application enables real-time transmission of the thermal camera view to a centralized control room. This remote monitoring capability brings more eyes to the search mission. 

The NSC3 Platform is made up of these component apps: 

NSC Web App a web application that provides a dashboard view through any device that supports a web browser. This allows the Command Center and field locations to be on the same page throughout the search.

NSC Drone enables live video streaming from the drone camera or cameras. It allows secure recording for for After Action Review, Training and for Evidence if needed. 

NSC Mobile enables video from smartphones to be streamed, recorded and shared with team members. NSC Mobile™ also allows team members to see the video stream from drones and different mobile phones. Other features include a map, Push To Talk and chat capability.

NSC IOT™ enables integration of other devices, such as cameras, sensors, and license plate readers into the platform. If your fleet of vehicles is equipped with mobile routers, NSC3™ can add more capability to your investment.
