Built on the Communiqué 950, solution advances situational awareness and increases efficiency for EMS, First Responders and all ground fleet operations.

Outerlink Global Solutions, the leading satellite tracking and first-responder communications provider for mixed air and ground fleets, today announced through a live data connection with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that they can now provide customers with real-time weather forecasts and animated radar maps.

The new weather features, built on Outerlink’s Communiqué 950 (CQ950), eliminates the uncertainty of weather in any given response situation, enhancing efficiency for dispatchers and responders by empowering them with up to the minute forecasting. The CQ950’s in-dash touch screen brings tracking and communications functionality to ground fleets, coupled with cloud-based software for dispatching, communicating, and monitoring. Users can access the real-time weather and forecast information from the home screen in a matter of clicks on the in-dash touch screen device.

“The ability to provide our customers with live, actionable data and information is critical,” said Steve Durante, CEO of Outerlink Global Solutions. “In the emergency response line of business, every second counts. With the real-time weather and forecast application, both dispatchers and responders can easily access and communicate information to make informed decisions about suggested response routes, potential traffic backups, appropriate gear and preparedness items, weather patterns based on increased situational awareness. The technology and functionality of the real-time weather overlay in the CQ950 enables our customers to do their jobs faster, more effectively and better serve their communities.”

Outerlink’s advanced turn-by-turn GPS mapping and point-of-interest (POI) software, provided by award winning SyGic Navigation, is enhanced by this live environment overlay as it pushes real time information to the device corresponding to the fleet operator’s location at any given time.
