Minneapolis – (Apr 10) – Federal, state and local law enforcement and public safety agencies, representing some 800 first responders, worked in coordination this past weekend to ensure the safety and security of those attending the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament. At the heart of this effort was Fusus' Fusion Central platform that provides both officers in the field and incident commanders working real-time tactical awareness.
Fusion Central is accessed through a lightweight, easy-to-use app that runs on smartphones as well as through a suite of web-based command interfaces. It allows for viewing officer locations, live videos, stored video evidence, and more. This enhanced situational awareness allows for faster, more effective response by first responders and lets incident commanders react quickly and deploy appropriate personnel to events.
“Being embedded in a complex, multi-agency security environment like the Final Four is a perfect application of our technology,” said Tim Kingsley, Fusus Director of Strategic Development. “The platform lets officers in the field better assess a situation before entering it, have better knowledge as to how other assets are deployed and gives them instant communications using the smartphone they’re already carrying. All that technology is behind an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that lets both first responders and command focus on the situation instead of fiddling with the tech.”
Fusus first deployed its technology in 2018 in support of law enforcement efforts around Super Bowl 52. The latest version of the technology incorporates new features such as real-time firearms and weapons detection, the ability to add closed-circuit camera networks on the fly in response to real-time needs and mapping of camera locations as an overlay for location floor plans. The company technology is currently integrated into more than 35 public safety programs for schools, communities and corporate campuses across the United States as well as in France and Germany.
