AeroComputers announced that the San Diego Police Air Support Unit has selected the UC-6000 mission computer as part of the Department’s ongoing technology advancements to keep the citizens of San Diego safe.
Using the UC-6000 mission computer, San Diego Air Support Unit’s helicopters can now receive computer-aided dispatch (CAD) messages. When the decision is made to respond to an incident, the UC-6000 provides the bearing and distance to the incident and when prompted, slews the helicopter’s camera to the target location. This technology reduces response times, enhances situational awareness, and provides air crews access to critical information. The safety of citizens and first responders is dramatically improved.
“We are very pleased to continue our long-standing relationship in support of the San Diego Police Air Support Unit,” said David Cady, sales manager at AeroComputers Inc. “They will certainly enjoy the exceptional performance the UC-6000 provides as they serve the citizens of San Diego.”
