About EmergencySHIELD

Whether it's a disaster relief team deploying to a remote area devastated by an earthquake, or a deployed security force responding to a complex attack in a large city, reliable emergency communications can help protect a population, recover from a crisis and save lives.

As a trusted partner in security and emergency response, General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada knows that to be effective in an emergency requires a capable communications system that is deployable and reliable. To give responders the tools they need, General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada has developed a deployable, dedicated and secure broadband (LTE/4G) communications system that can be taken with security forces or humanitarian relief teams anywhere in the world.

The solution, known as EmergencySHIELD, provides mission critical communications and a coordination capability to prepare for or react to a security incident or natural disaster, where existing communications networks are destroyed, overloaded, or simply not fast enough to pass the information needed to be effective and safe in the field. Once activated, EmergencySHIELD establishes a persistent, versatile and accessible network that can rapidly share video, voice, data and location information that can also supplement existing radio systems. With EmergencySHIELD security personnel or disaster relief teams deploy with smart devices that can not only talk to each other but also share data no matter where they are.

EmergencySHIELD is based on the General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada SHIELD EcosystemTM LTE architecture which is backed by six decades of systems integration experience to deliver the right information in real time to multiple users from multiple organizations providing a security coordination and safety function that will enhance the effectiveness of even the largest international security or relief effort.
