Empowering Safety: PowerShield’s Role in Marine Rescue WA’s Radio Monitoring Initiative

Empowering Safety: PowerShield’s Role in Marine Rescue WA’s Radio Monitoring Initiative

Marine Rescue WA  ensures comprehensive radio monitoring services along Western Australia’s coastline and surrounding islands, operating 24/7/365. Feedback revealed significant gaps in coverage, with some areas only serviced on weekends or public holidays, and others lacking monitoring altogether due to resource constraints. To address this, they adopted Radio over IP technology, allowing remote operators to monitor radio traffic and respond to incidents, particularly in less populated regions. Teaming up with Direct Communications, they implemented a safety solution incorporating Tait equipment, Omnitronics’ Omnicore Enterprise Dispatch software, and PowerShields’ Commander 2000VA UPS to safeguard critical communications. The expandable UPS system ensures uninterrupted connectivity and prepares for future system demands with additional battery modules.
