Altus Mobile: Mobile location surveillance
Polaris Wireless announced Altus Mobile, a mobile location surveillance application, providing accurate mass location of all mobile devices operating on a cellular network, on-demand location, subscriber device tracking, and geo-fence capabilities to field agents on their mobile devices.
This advanced application is powered by Polaris Wireless Location Signatures technology and is the latest feature of Altus, a software-based surveillance solution that enables accurate mass location – providing users the ability to simultaneously locate all subscriber devices in a wireless network in real time and on a historical basis.
Altus Mobile allows field agents to simultaneously track suspects on a Smartphone or tablet, and make life-or-death decisions in real time by receiving up-to-date intelligence from headquarters, such as:
- Past and current locations of suspects
- Locations where two or more suspects meet
- Occasions where suspects enter/exit a restricted area
- Visualization of suspects’ surroundings by augmented reality
- Nearby locations of authorities (police, military, etc.)
Polaris WLS is designed to scale as an operator’s network grows, providing location capabilities in 2G (GSM/CDMA), 3G (UMTS/CDMA 2000), and emerging 4G (LTE) air interfaces, as well as indoor technologies such as WiFi, DAS, and Femtocells.
