IT News Online – Cytta Corp. empowers drones for building clearing operations with the North Texas Public Safety Unmanned Response Team
Cytta’s IGAN technology integrated into the new “Drone Clear” protocol
LAS VEGAS, NV/ACCESSWIRE/April 6, 2022/ Cytta Corp (OTCQB: CYCA, the “Company”) is pleased to announce that our Incident Global Area Network (IGAN) video integration technology has been integrated into a revolutionary new law enforcement protocol called “Drone Clear”. The new “Drone Clear” building entry protocol was created to provide law enforcement officers with advanced intelligence before entering a potentially dangerous space.
Launched in conjunction with the North Texas Public Safety Unmanned Response Team (PSURT) www.ntxpsurt.org, the new drone clearance protocol deploys multiple drones to enter the building to assess and provide video evidence of potential hazards before putting police and building residents at risk. Several drone video streams are broadcast and integrated into our IGAN communication link. The IGAN then provides real-time video feeds to each tactical team member prior to entry. Using drone clearing as an initial process avoids the enormous risk of death or injury to police tactical officers and building residents that conventional building entry and clearing tactics “l ‘officer first’ demand. We see “Drones First” as a new entry protocol into the National Police.
Cytta Technical Director Michael Collins said, “I was delighted and honored to technically assist in the deployment of our IGAN ‘clear drone’ technique being used with a PSURT member police service. This happened during a raid by the vice squad securing a large building and its In lieu of officers initially entering the structure, four internal drones were used after a door opening procedure and the deployment of flashbang grenades. Using our IGAN system, the drones were able to broadcast real-time video from inside the structure. Everyone involved in the operation viewing the drone video could see and examine exactly what was happening and plan accordingly. IGAN’s integration capability enabled constant monitoring of the interior of the building without any risk to officers and residents Building occupants were identified, exited the conforming structure followed the voice prompts and were secured. Only after that did the tactical teams enter the structure and secure in their usual manner.”
Travis Calendine, President of North Texas PSURT, said, “At PSURT, we are excited to be able to help develop the ‘drone compensation’ methodology using IGAN and drone fleet assets that both protect officers and the public. As Cytta IGAN technology is implemented in multiple active policing actions, we discover various scenarios where IGAN technology becomes an indispensable part of active operational tactics. To date, it has given us exemplary results, and I believe our new implementation of “drone clearing” is just one of many innovations in policing that drones and technology IGAN integration will allow us to strengthen here in Texas and nationally.”
Conventional room or building clearing tactics involve the officer(s) physically entering the premises in order to inspect the room and neutralize any threats discovered. This has been described as one of the most dangerous police maneuvers as officers are told: “When approaching to clear a room that contains a potential threat, keep your chest cavity (central mass) behind the post. the door as much as possible. as you “cut the cake” visually. The extra construction materials used to frame the door will stop direct fire from most handguns. The fact that officers entering a room are always at extreme risk creates a very dangerous situation for the police and everyone in the building.
It’s important to note that since the Columbine school shooting, most police departments have implemented a “peek and push” strategy whereby officers alone are now required to arrest them. -even active shooters rather than the previous policy of containing and waiting for SWAT. Any time an officer enters a building whether or not an active shooter is involved, there is a serious risk of injury or death, given the multiple unknown variables involved and the extremely emotionally charged situation. ‘Drone Clear’ eliminates the majority of these risk factors. Hopefully, in the future, there will be no more officers needlessly endangered or, conversely, no more public tragedies of Breanna Taylors or Amir Locke.
Cytta’s IGAN has the unique ability to capture multiple video and audio streams, from any source, in real time and aggregate them into immediately actionable information. This enables all participating first responders, real-time crime centers and fusion centers to act together based on actionable information that was previously difficult or impossible to obtain. To date, IGAN has been successfully used in multiple life or death scenarios including hostage taking, search and rescue, crime in progress, fugitive arrest, building raids and residences and arrests based on warrants.
Cytta Corp (OTCQB: CYCA) develops and distributes proprietary software technology designed to change the way video/audio data is integrated, delivered, consumed, transferred and stored. Cytta’s proprietary IGAN Incident Command System (ICS) integrates all video and audio streams available in an emergency in real time, enabling enhanced virtual policing. The IGAN ICS introduces real-time video and audio situational awareness, which Cytta says is useful and valuable for police, fire, first responders, emergency medical workers, industry, environment and emergencies, security, military and their emergency command centers.
Cytta’s proprietary SUPR ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) system provides real-time compression of video streams for surface, airborne, and subsea ISR applications, including environments, where video streams are transmitted overhead. beyond the line of sight. Using a SUPR-enabled encoder on board an unmanned system, video can be streamed safely in high definition via an extremely low bandwidth (Cytta has created advanced video/audio integration software, video compression, and wearable/SaaS hardware/software systems that solve real-world problems in major markets. Cytta wants its products to empower and empower the world to enjoy higher quality video anywhere, anytime. Cytta’s ultimate goal is to deliver such high quality video that is indistinguishable from reality with the naked eye, thus creating “Reality Delivered”.
