The MERC Lite is a small, but powerful mobile power and communication trailer that is designed to provide a fully operational voice, data, and radio network within 15 minutes of deployment. This tactical trailer weighs less than 3,500 pounds and is compact enough to be towed by most standard vehicles, airlifted, or loaded in a transport plane for delivery. The MERC Lite can be deployed in areas where larger command center trailers and vehicles can not travel. The MERC Lite is also more suitable for densely populated urban areas with narrow streets and limited parking.
The MERC Lite is powered by a Cummins Onan 12,000 watt Quiet Diesel generator with a 91-gallon fuel tank. A VSAT auto-acquire satellite system allows it to offer network access anywhere in the world providing not only internet service and data access but also Hosted VoIP and SIP service for two way voice service. A 30-foot pneumatic mast equipped with removable antenna arms provides a platform to mount antennas for land mobile radios and repeaters, cellular extender antennas, wireless LAN/WAN antennas, weather station equipment, television antennas, HAM radio antennas, and video surveillance equipment. A 360-Track GPS system provides remote monitoring of the MERC Lite for location tracking purposes and attempted theft alerts.
We offer several free flying solutions as well as a tethered UAV that can provide extended flight times for long-term deployments. These units make this a very powerful tool that can be utilized in such operations as accident reconstruction, search and rescue, crowd control, land and sea traffic monitoring, critical infrastructure protection, crisis management, and aerial land surveying. By utilizing the MERC trailer with the MERC-UAV, our customers will be able to utilize this powerful aerial surveillance tool anywhere in the world regardless of the availability of local power or communications. Â This will prove to be very beneficial after a natural or man-made disaster temporarily causes normal local resources to be inoperable. Please note that CCS constantly monitors the FAA’s guidelines on legal UAV operation and work to ensure our offers always meet their specific requirements.
