US National Guard Deploys Librestream Video Collaboration Technology for Instant Situational Awareness
Supporting Incident Response Events for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams (WMS-CST)
Librestream today announced it received a firm fixed-price order for Librestream’s Onsight mobile video collaboration solution to support the Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams (WMD-CST). Librestream received the order from ADS, Inc. on behalf of the US National Guard through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) program.
The WMD-CST are the first responders for the US National Guard and tasked with assessing and providing support for potential chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incidents. The Librestream Onsight solution will be installed at all 57 WMD-CST locations.
The WMD-CST first responder units will use Librestream’s Onsight rugged smart cameras and video collaboration software that runs on computers and tablets. This approach will enable remote subject matter expert(s) to review potentially hazardous situations instantly and securely no matter where they are located. These specialized Onsight rugged video devices are also Ex certified to operate in potentially hazardous environments.
“We worked together with the professionals at ADS, whose military-experienced personnel demonstrated a clear understanding of the customer’s mission and requirements. The addition of mobile video augments the existing tools used by WMD-CST and provides a collaborative platform for instant situational awareness to help assess any potential threats,” said Jereme Pitts, COO of Librestream.
The US National Guard tested the Librestream system extensively before selecting it for its ability to share live visuals and voice from even the most difficult locations.
