Motorola provides integrated communications solutions, systems and networking services to police forces around the world. It announced that it has been commissioned by the Hong Kong Police to deliver its third generation Command and Control Communications system (CC3). The value of this contract to Motorola is US$69 million and includes 9-year maintenance of the system. In these security conscious times, the decision to award this landmark contract to Motorola demonstrates a confidence in its ability to deliver one of Asia’s most sophisticated police communications systems.
The CC3 system will be designed to provide the Hong Kong Police with highly responsive and resilient capabilities to better address increasing safety and security needs that have emerged around the world. The agreement calls for Motorola to deliver a completely integrated command and control communications system consisting of four components:
— A digital trunked radio communications system with voice and data capabilities
— 999 emergency telephone system with automatic emergency caller number and location identification capability
— A mobile computing system allowing officers to access necessary information from their radio handsets and/or mobile data terminals; and
— Automatic vehicle location system (AVLS) that will allow dispatchers to better allocate resources to attend emergency incidents as well as a Geographic Information System (GIS) that will allow the emergency call takers and dispatchers to more quickly and accurately identify the location of emergency incidents and police resources.
