July 18, 2007 In this new age where communication, not ammunition, is the deciding factor in warfare. The ROSETTA-911, a rapid response communications system developed by Platforms Wireless International Corporation, has shown that not only is it effective in battles, but can also assist emergency workers in saving lives. The system enables disparate VHF, UHF, 800 MHz radios, cellular and land-line (secured) telephones, and Internet/VOIP to interconnect and communicate with each other, regardless of differences in equipment makes or brands, communications protocols, and/or communications backbone systems. After successfully demonstrating an earlier model to the US Department of Defense in 2006, PWIC has recently announced the readiness of its new and improved version.
The ROSETTA-911 Military System Model M-1 has all the capabilities of its predecessor, and additionally includes advanced VHF, UHF, 800 MHz radio and cellular interoperability facilities; twice the number of Talk Groups (four vs. two); eight radio ports instead of five; a secured land-line telephone port, (STU-III compatible); Internet/VOIP communications with two independent IP addresses; integrated military radio (“Green Gear”) interface; and redundant, high-efficiency power supplies.
The system integrates seamlessly with existing legacy radios and communications infrastructure, and is delivered ready to use and fully equipped with VHF, UHF, 800 MHz mobile (LMR) radios, matching portable radios, a cellular and land-line (STU-III compatible) telephone port, Internet/VOIP communications connectivity with two independent IP addresses, and a custom, tri-band interoperable antenna. Once in operation, the system enables incident commanders to efficiently control, direct, and manage communications traffic.
The ROSETTA-911 is currently being marketed to the US Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, all branches of the military, and the police, fire departments and emergency medical services.
