CNC to equip FDLE's King Air 350 with streaming video/data mission suite

CNC Technologies has been selected by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to equip King Air 350 with streaming video/data mission suite.

Using the new system, the FDLE will be able to transmit real-time data and HD video streams from its multi-engine aircraft during natural disasters, counter-terrorism efforts, and criminal investigations.

CNC Technologies co-founder Ron Magocsi said: "We will be equipping the FDLE's King Air 350 with everything it needs to have reliable HD video and meta-data communications while airborne.

"This will provide first responders from all levels of government with access to the unparalleled 'eyes above' situational awareness that only a camera-equipped aircraft like the King Air 350 can provide during man made and natural emergencies."

The FDLE was set up in 1967 by combining the resources of the Florida Sheriffs Bureau, the State Narcotics Bureau, and the law enforcement activities of the Anti-Bookie Squad of the Attorney General's Office.

The department seeks to "promote public safety and strengthen domestic security by providing services in partnership with local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies to prevent, investigate, and solve crimes while protecting Florida's citizens and visitors".

Nearly 1,700 members have the achieve this goal through the FDLE's agency headquarters in Tallahassee, as well as seven regional operations centers located in Pensacola, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Fort Myers and Miami.
