Transport Canada Selects EMS Satcom

January 9, 2007

EMS Satcom, a division of EMSTechnologies, Inc. reported that Transport Canada has selected the EMS SATCOM eNfusion Broadband high-speed data system to enhance marine pollution surveillance and detection on Transport Canada's National Aerial Surveillance Program (NASP) Dash 8 aircraft. Flight Acceptance Tests were completed in early November 2006. EMS SATCOM's eNfusion system was installed and integrated with the Swedish Space Corporation's (SSC) Maritime Surveillance System (MSS 6000) to allow for real-time transmission and replay of data. The advantage is that evidence captured during the pollution patrol can be directly transmitted from the aircraft to command centers or marine safety inspectors in real-time, allowing authorities to respond and direct enforcement action more quickly, thereby protecting Canada's maritime environment. Moreover, the satellite-based equipment allows the aircraft to perform its surveillance duties more effectively where terrestrial systems are not available.
