Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon and communications applications developer Twisted Pair Solutions have worked to develop a mobile-enabled dispatch technology for the sheriff’s office in San Luis Obispo County, Calif.

The Internet Protocol-based dispatch system is designed to help first responders communicate using smartphones and tablets, Raytheon said Monday.

T.J. Kennedy, director of public safety and security at Raytheon, said the company aims to provide local departments with technology in support of the FirstNet public safety network.

“In addition to the challenges of aging equipment, many first responders seek to take advantage of new capabilities offered by smartphones and tablets,” he added.

Additionally, the dispatch console integrates Raytheon’s gateway unit and a Twisted Pair mobile communications platform.

Twisted Pair’s WAVE software works to securely connect any smartphone to multi-channel land mobile radio systems, Raytheon
said.
