Catch a glimpse of Israel
Two Israeli companies received a grant to develop their novel remote monitoring and control system for first-responder teams in the United States and Israel. The project includes the development of a high-bandwidth wireless broadcast infrastructure that can transfer images, audio and video between the robotic devices and first-responder teams over a large distance. This enables remote monitoring in real time, “removing first-responder personnel from harm’s way during uncertain and challenging situations,” explained Jeremy Parsons, CEO of Mantaro. Mantaro Networks and Beeper Communications Israel received a $900,000 grant from the Israel-United States Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation to develop this Unmanned Search and Rescue System (USRS).
