CNC Technologies, an aviation technology and wireless communications company serving the law enforcement, military and government markets, announced today it has deployed an airborne law enforcement mission suite for the Nebraska State Patrol’s (NSP) new Bell 505 Jet Ranger X helicopter. Completed in partnership with Force Aviation of Dallas, Texas, the state-of-the-art mission suite provides the NSP with a comprehensive patrol, surveillance and communications solution that is fully interoperable with the agency’s existing aircraft and technology infrastructure.
The project builds upon CNC’s standing as a leading provider of airborne law enforcement solutions for the Bell 505. CNC previously provided the tactical airborne mission suite for the Fort Worth Police Department Bell 505, and CNC was recently contracted to provide microwave downlink solutions for the Omaha Police Department Bell 505. The company also has broad expertise developing, deploying and supporting airborne law enforcement solutions for the Bell 407 and Bell 429.
For the new mission suite, CNC developed a custom solution matched to NSP’s specific needs, incorporating an L3/Wescam MX10 imager, Shotover/Churchill Systems moving map, Airborne Displays monitor, Trakka TLX searchlight and Troll Systems microwave downlink system. Air crews will be able to utilize the solution to stream uninterrupted HD video and data from the aircraft to commanders and officers on the ground, enhancing situational awareness, intelligence gathering and public safety efforts.
“CNC has a proven track record in building airborne law enforcement solutions for agencies across the US and around the world,” said Lt. Brian Petersen of the Nebraska State Patrol. “They brought a deep understanding of the needs of our air crews and commanders to the project, and we are pleased to partner with them in support of our public safety mission.”
NSP will take delivery of the aircraft at Dallas Executive Airport following this year’s HAI Heli-Expo in Dallas. As part of the engagement, CNC will provide ongoing training and 24/7 support for the new mission suite. The project builds upon CNC’s growth over the past year with a broad range of law enforcement and public safety agencies including the Massachusetts State Police, Swedish National Police, Jamaica Defence Forces and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
“We are honored to have been selected by the Nebraska State Patrol to launch the airborne mission suite for the agency’s new Bell 505,” said Ron Magocsi, founding partner and chief technology officer at CNC Technologies. “We look forward to working together on an ongoing basis to support their law enforcement efforts.”
