The Contracts Will Have an Aggregate Value of Approximately $500,000
HACKETTSTOWN, NJ, November 11, 2019 — Vislink Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: VISL) announces the renewal of three-year service contracts with twelve (12) UK Police Forces. These multiple contracts extend the customer support Vislink provides for its previously sold and installed Airborne Data Link (ADL) infrastructure being used in UK Home Office police operations. The contracts will have an aggregate value of approximately $500,000 over the three-year period. This represents the second three-year renewal of the contracts and includes recurring maintenance, warranty service and training. UK Home Office is a ministerial department responsible for immigration, security and law and order in the United Kingdom.
There is also the potential for purchases of upgrades to installed ground infrastructure, as Vislink incorporates new technologies that increase capabilities for the police forces. This includes deployment of the Vislink TSM-2020 video aggregator. The TSM-2020 allows the onward transmission of airborne data to tactical ground forces deployed with smart phones and tablets over 4G and coming 5G networks.
“The extension of this contract underscores the strength of the relationship between Vislink Technologies and UK law enforcement agencies,” said Tony Price, Vice President of Business Development, Military and Government. “It further demonstrates our commitment to offering the latest technology solutions to support policing operations.”
Vislink provides a secure, interoperable solution utilizing its proven technology for transmitting high-quality video from aircraft to operational commanders on the ground. This technology is actively being used by law enforcement organizations in the U.S. and around the world. In the UK, Vislink technology was selected as part of the UK Home Office Airborne Data Link Migration Project. The stated goal of the project was to create a single, common, interoperable national airborne video downlink service.
The Vislink solution encompassed the installation of an entirely new integrated video datalink system, that included the delivery of over 200 mobile, portable and fixed equipment items. The UK-wide rollout of Vislink equipment has delivered significant improvements in range and video quality. During joint operations, regional forces and national agencies can now access ADL images transmitted from aircraft using portable and handheld equipment. The images can also be viewed at regional command and control centers throughout the UK.
The increased situational awareness delivered by the Vislink solution has provided the police forces the means for faster and more accurate decision making, while enhancing the safety of the public and law enforcement personnel.
