This will allow operators to seamlessly overlay location specific data on top of live HD video feeds, enhancing situational awareness. Other key mission suite components include FLIR Star SAFIRE 380-HDc imagers, Spectrolab SX-16 enhanced searchlights and Troll microwave video downlink systems. As part of the assignment, CNC is also building out both fixed and mobile receive sites that will provide uninterrupted connectivity across all of Broward County.
