IWT’s Mine Rescue System was developed to meet the rigorous and demanding specifications of mine rescue teams. As a result, mine rescue teams are moving faster, safer, and more efficiently than ever before.
Replacing legacy sound-powered or walkie-talkie handsets, the system enables constant communication among the exploration team members, the briefing officer, and the Command Center.
Small, lightweight, rapidly deployable Portable Mesh Nodes (PMNs) are the heart of the system, acting as repeaters that establish a robust wireless network. The nodes join the network automatically – no IP address needed. Just turn them on and go. Scale the system from inby the Fresh Air Base all the way to the surface Command Center by dropping PMNs outby as the Fresh Air Base advances.
Handsets provide crystal clear voice for anyone on the network. Speaker mics, headsets, and direct connection to the SCBA facemask are options to facilitate communications. Furthermore, all communication is encrypted to maintain security. Handsets are also tracked by the system.
All capabilities are modular and can be added individually as needs arise and funds are available.
The IWT Mine Rescue System is trusted by federal and many state response teams. With 24/7/365 technical support, your team can trust it too. Training and service plan options are available to maximize effectiveness.
