During Hurricane Harvey our company was asked to help man the State of Texas Emergency Operation Center in support of the satellite network service we provide to all of the State's mobile command centers. We were stationed at Camp Mabry in Austin, TX with TX DPS and the TX National Guard. This location fielded a lot of requests from the First Responders out in the field about what type of communication equipment needed in the field. The most common request by far was for portable communication devices that could be easily carried by a single person. The reason for this request is that due to the flooding and unpassable roads many repsonders where either in a boat or on foot. Satellite phones and satellite radios were very popular, but an issue with them is the battery life and the fact that most models can only support one person. We have been working on developing a new model of our PERC (Portable Emergency Response Center) to make it more portable and to include a robust battery back-up system. The previous version is larger and uses a heavier transit case. After several months of trial and error, we have finally come up with a small transit case that is completely sealed (weatherproof), includes a LTE router that supports dual sim cards including Band 14, provides radio interoprability, a BGAN satellite for network connectivity when LTE service is not available, multiple LAN and WAN ports, wi-fi service, and 30 hours of battery power. It weighs less than 15 pounds and can also be used in conjunction with a larger fly away sat system. We will also offer a version that has a Mutualink Multi-NIC for more radio, video, and telephone connectivity and a HF radio (yes, Joey Clements I said a HF Radio!). Stay tuned for more detail. ...

Great afternoon of training with Texas DPS at Lake Brownwood State Park!
A quick look back at some of the projects CCS completed for First Responders in 2017 all around the world: https://youtu.be/A0p5Jrpu6-E .
Quick recap of CCS projects in 2017 including mobile command center build outs, new video surviellance trailers, Mutualink, and much more.
A company is only as good as its employees and its customers and fortunately at CCS we have a great set of both! 2017 was definitely a year of growth for us as we worked to expand our production, sales, and services efforts. Guy Dawson finished his 2nd year as VP of Operations managing all manufacturing and production activities and Brian Anderson was brought in as VP of Services and has been tasked with expanding our technical support and services team and our offers around satellite network service, Mutualink, Hosted SIP service, and LTE offers. Although we manufacture our own line of mobile command centers, video surveillance trailers, and license plate recognition trailers (all branded under the Mobile Emergency Response Center name), the real value we provide our customers is our expertise in mobile networks and the applications that run on them. This technology is what enables our customers to better communicate in a time of crisis and continue to function even when most local resources are down. 2017 saw us complete large projects for FEMA, Texas Dept. of Public Safety, Texas National Guard, Country of Chile, Country of Peru, Harris County Sheriff's Office, City of Lubbock Police Dept., Texas Department of Transportation, City of Dallas Police Department, and many more. CCS also reached new partnering agreements with General Dynamics, AT&T, Synnex, PepLink, and Bearcom Wireless. Lee Finley our primary partner and investor has reorganized Zumro Air Shelters which is an important supplier and partner for us. We also rolled out some new products including a tethered drone package that incorporates a fiber optic cable into the tethering system and can support VHF, UHF, 700/800, WiFi, and LTE antennas, a new version of our MERC-Lite satcom unit that is a POD based system designed to be transported on a flatbed truck or air lifted, and a portable suitcase solution that includes LTE, Mutualink, BGAN satellite, and extended battery support. We fully expect 2018 to be our best year to date. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all the folks here at CCS!!!!! — Products shown: Zumro Air Shelter. ... See more
Smith County Fire Department in Tyler, Texas came to us with a project a few weeks ago to modify a 100 foot tower trailer they purchased to add a climate controlled space for equipment racks and a generator compartment and fuel tank. As usual, my team at CCS led by Guy Dawson my Operations Manager did an outstanding job. ... See more
Just finished up a MERC-V video surviellance trailer for the University of Texas - Arlington Police Department. This unit will help to provide security on their campus and should be a valuable tool for their officers. This unit may be small, but it is very well equuipped with a solar and generator power system. The MERC has a power management package that constantly monitors the charged level of the batteries and if they dip below a certain point the Cummins Onan generator kicks on and charges them back to 100%. ...

We have been working on a tethering system for a drone package that will allow us to fly for extended periods of time and provide a fiber optic link between the ground control station and the drone. We passed our first test today with a low altitude flight to ensure the power feed was working properly. Worked great, so next test will be flying off the GPS system at 180 feet. Stay tuned - here is the video from today: https://youtu.be/S7l83fXCkp4 . ... See more
