AeroComputers at Presidential Inauguration

Oxnard, California, USA. January 21, 2017 – AeroComputers is proud to have been the Digital Mapping System of choice at the Presidential Inauguration January 20, 2017.

For the inauguration of the 45th president, the United States Park Police air division maintained superior visibility from two Bell 412 aircraft and played a critical role in ensuring a safe event for all attendees. AeroComputers’ UltiChart Digital Mapping System provided real-time location information and control of the sensor gimbal, streamlining the TFO’s efforts. This was a new installation, so extra effort was made by the AeroComputers and Park Police technical teams to ensure flawless operation of the entire equipment payload at the event.

Kathy Tarr, CEO at AeroComputers, shared, “Due to a last-minute change in aircraft available to the Park Police, we flew two AeroComputers field service engineers out to Washington DC to assist the client just days before the inauguration. They worked hard to ensure a complete integration of all mission-critical components.”

Sydney Mitchell, Director of Sales and Marketing continued, “Our customers know that if any problem is encountered in the AeroComputers map system’s performance, we are there to make it right, even if the issue did not originate on our equipment. That’s the peace of mind that every AeroComputers customer gets because of our firm commitment to enhancing the TFO’s mission capabilities.”

Since 1993 AeroComputers, Inc., based in Oxnard, California, has been the leader in designing and building computer systems that manage tactical operations for public use and military aviation.

Oxnard, California, USA. September 27, 2016 – AeroComputers, the industry leader for airborne Digital Mapping Systems for Law Enforcement, is a crucial link in the Nassau County Police airborne mission equipment package. Recently, Nassau County Police was on the scene to maintain public safety at the September 26th Presidential Debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

The AeroComputers UC-6000 Digital Mapping System provided enhanced situational awareness aiding in deploying agency resources and monitoring crowd activity. Nassau’s two new Bell 429 helicopters came equipped with UC-6000s, seamlessly integrating and managing the equipment package and camera sensor keeping the Tactical Flight Officer’s undivided focus on the mission not managing the system.

The debate brought intense scrutiny to Hofstra, and securing the debate was the number one priority for Nassau County police. Nassau County Police Acting Commissioner Thomas Krumpter went on record marking the debate as the area’s most significant public safety event in 30 years.

“Nassau impressed us with their balanced and firm execution of the crowd control operation,” said AeroComputers’ CEO Kathy Tarr. “We feel honored to be part of the solution that helped them maintain the security of the event and even provide a safe public forum outside the venue for free speech, no easy task given the intense crowds.”

This isn’t the first time agencies have relied on AeroComputers at times of critical importance. AeroComputers was also the core of state-of-the art airborne law enforcement over the World Cup in Brazil and the 2016 Olympics.

Agencies around the world rely on AeroComputers’ 100% commitment to success, both for the installation and the mission.

“Without AeroComputers’ UC-6000 Digital Mapping System you’d just have a lot of very expensive high-tech equipment,” said AeroComputers’ Operations Administrator Sydney Mitchell. “The UC-6000 is the glue that makes the peripherals communicate and work together so the TFO can focus on the mission, not managing the system.”

While AeroComputers leads the industry in technological innovation, it is customer support that is essential to AeroComputers’ success. AeroComputers’ support team flies out for on-site support for every installation, not relying on remote technical support.

“Every installation presents a unique challenge,” said AeroComputers’ General Manager Bruce Bowmar. “AeroComputers’ UC-6000 integrates with every major camera gimbal and airborne data source relevant to the industry, so no two equipment packages are the same.”

TJ Snow, AeroComputers Field Operations Technician added, “If we have two of the same installation, that’s the exception that proves the rule. We’re there by your side for as long as it takes to ensure success, whether the agency self-installing or using an outside integrator.”

“Our team is in it to win it,” said AeroComputers CEO Kathy Tarr.  “Failure is not an option for us or for the agencies who rely on our Digital Mapping Solutions.”
