Interoperable and Cost Effective front line Policing


(Please see Presentation below for an overview of the OBSVA concept)


Daetech Systems worked closely with the police fleet market leaders General Motors UK (Vauxhall), and their "Specialist Vehicles department", who formed a consortium of specialist firms considered to be best in class to incorporate leading technology into the British-built Astra Sports Tourer, creating probably the most sophisticated police vehicle ever presented in the UK.


The guidelines for the project was based around the criteria set out by the Home Office's Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST) and the Association of Chief Police Officers Intelligent Transportation Systems Working Group (ACPO ITS)


The State-of-the-art on-board technology from a consortium of 12 companies includes solutions from Daetech Systems, Innaxys, Video Latitude, Imagebase, Tetratab, Airmax Group, Trans-tag, Kelvin Connect, Civica and Facewatch all brought together by Vauxhall Special Vehicles, integrated and made fully interoperable with the onboard systems and existing Police and Emergency Services infrastructure, whilst ensuring that the chosen solutions were of a quality and maturity that would enable a police force to buy it and implement it



Daetech re-engineered their flagship solution, the Mobile Image and Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) into a smaller, robust first responder version, completely re-designing the hardware and software, the MIDASone has become a fully integrated solution and integral part of the Future police car. The MIDASone allows police officers responding to an incident to recover vital evidence from the crime scene including CCTV video and Images and multimedia from mobile devices such as camcorders and smartphones controlled by the Daetech Multimedia recovery suite, captured and recovered files are immediately forensically verified to ensure the integrity of the evidence, along with additional metadata which can be added such as attending officer, location and device type. The MIDASone connects to and is interoperable with USB 2 laptops such as the Rugged C-series laptop from Tetratab which docks seamlessly into the police vehicle.
