Animal Welfare Monitoring
Link Tower has a range of solutions suitable for automated monitoring of animals both in the wild and also in captivity. Cage control solutions and environment control and monitoring solutions are incorporated within our surveillance technologies to assist with animal management. Caged animals can be remotely fed and watered using intelligent software and in addition, live High Definition footage can be sent from holding areas to management offices and also sent offsite remotely for doctors to for example oversee animal welfare.
We have worked with kennels and Council pounds in order to minimise risk of public danger whilst inspecting animals and also in order to create an online network of lost and found animals, with live imagery from pounds being sent onto Council websites regarding possible adoption
Emergency Incident Management
Link Tower has the solutions to assist with the management and incident control of emergency situations. Link Tower interoperability trailers and mobile platforms are designed for rapid deployment.
Link Tower focuses on the Control of Incidents and Emergency Situations for the below sectors:
• Railways and infrastructure- Incident & Collision Emergency Management and
• Transport and Roadways – Incident & Collision Emergency Management
• Emergency Services – Police, Fire & Medical Incident control and Emergency Management
Rail infrastructure damages and outages can be viewed live via Link Tower solutions for the purposes of remote administration via an incident control room for the purposes of enhanced situational awareness. Updates to the general populous can be advised using the information provided by Link Tower devices for accurate and estimated return to schedule times. We have assisted Queensland Rail in supplying temporary Link Tower Mobile CCTV Link Cam units for the purposes of level crossing studies on behaviour of drivers in and around level crossing in improving road safety.
First responders, State of Emergency Services (SES), Police and Fire and Medical Authorities can easily deploy Link Tower devices which are designed to be lightweight, reliable, easy to use and rugged. Essentially the benefits to the first responders is back up support via the management centres based on live and developing events of the incident. With a Link Tower device deployed, the monitoring control centre has the ability to view the incident and with a dedicated line to the incident control room, the management centre has the ability to dispatch additional resources to a scene.
Highway or road closures and construction road works are easily monitored by a traffic management centre or control room to ensure road closures are kept to the times specified and to ensure if traffic outages are required, the roadway is visible at the control room for the duration of the project.
Deployed in minutes, the control centre can view a crash incident, construction traffic congestion and or provide incident oversee abilities and assist with the live management of the incident.
Link Tower also provide to this sector local and secure telecommunications and mobile WIFI including point to point, mesh or microwave transmission solutions. We have provided services to the Roads and Traffic Authority of New South Wales (RTA) and the Brisbane Metropolitan Traffic Management Centre (BMTMC), a Brisbane City Council and Queensland Government operated traffic Management centre.
Our expertise can assist with the proper incident management of either planned and unplanned emergency events or incidents via our situational awareness systems. Police use of Link Tower for potential siege situations, and or lock down areas where local incident control mobile vehicles are locally controlling an incident. Link Cam units and mobile communication devices can stream data securely to the local command post for enhanced situational awareness.
Link Tower has assisted with Fire Services and command Posts in controlling back burning events or building closures whereby remote camera feeds are required to be sent to a local command post elevating the need to local personnel to remain onsite monitoring back burning especially when a fire in controlled. Other uses include training and onsite field support to units on the ground in large scale fire and rescue situations. Link Tower devices can be programmed to dual stream to multiple locations both locally and / or offsite, via secure encoding and transfer technologies.
Environmental Protection Monitoring
Link Tower, have mobile products that are used daily by environmental protection agencies and local Councils Australia wide in the management, and protection of the environment. Prevalent within parks and national parks are the following concerns among environmental protection authorities and Link Tower can help monitor:
• Illegal dumping or waste
• Illegal animal capture and game shooting
• Illegal camping
• Flora and Fauna theft and abuse
• Destruction by vehicles and
• Vandalism issues
Many devices claim they are used for such application and fail in relation to image quality, ability to be installed in remote and harsh environments and the ability to remotely control with pin point accuracy the cameras and viewing areas. Link Tower prides itself in providing exceptional solutions for this industry.
Link Tower can assist with HD Cameras, Thermal cameras and night vision assist camera system installed within many apparatus designed to be fit for purpose in the chosen application. Our cameras regularly use wind, solar, battery and generator energy sources to complete installation in the most remote and harvest environments. We have completed both covert and overt installations as they are both common in the protection of the environment and depending on the outcome required.
Modern Military Battle Field Automation
Link Tower can assist with mobile and completely wireless site cameras for field operations and training systems. Link Cams are specialised rugged HD and thermal optic camera systems designed for both covert and overt installations these camera systems have been used for effective army and military training.
For modern military training it is important for the group teachers and army training leaders to view the squads operations whilst focusing on group performance in a training scenario. Regularly the army or group of students are in remote areas of a training base where the teaching parties cannot effectively and discretely observe members of the group as they undertake their training obligations. Link Tower allows for Military and other organisations to remotely view and control the learning squad or group party effectively no matter how large the site base or compound. Recorded footage of the cameras can then be played back for further training purposes.
Process and Productions Monitoring
Link Tower solutions can be easily installed for process control and monitoring purposes. Link Tower regularly install systems in industrial, construction and production line environments in order to assist manager in understanding time critical tasks and the management of such on a site to multi- site basis.
Many factors are involved in creating streamlined and effective production enviroments that improve company’s bottom lines including:
• Labour effectiveness
• Project management and
• Line Automation
All of these key factors can be monitored and better managed and controlled using Link Tower solutions and intelligent CCTV and IP Video Surveillance technologies.
In addition to standard visual aids, Link Tower can also be a key player in automation of mining equipment and staging events where employee and operator risk is too high in their working environments, in these situations Link Tower is able to provide combination solutions that integrate the requirements of a mining, construction or industrial site.
