Base-Camp-Connect connects different and existing voice and data communication networks. Cross-system and interoperable communication become possible. The BCC communication solution is designed to create a decentralized and resilient communication infrastructure.
If one of the mobile and portable BCC BASE CAMP CONNECT Kommunication units fails, for example in a disaster situation, communication with all other units in the coalition can continue. BASE CAMP CONNECT communication solutions are designed to allow resilient communication between different parties with different communication devices at any time.
The interoperable BASE CAMP CONNECT communication solutions enable communication between different brands of radios as well as between mobile phones and radios and much more. Ideal for example for civil and military units and organizations to work together in times of crisis. This also works with encrypted and data communication.
BASE CAMP CONNECT eliminates the need for a comprehensive communications solution at headquarters. Many small mobile and agile communication solutions replace the one large solution, increasing the reliability and stability of communications. At the same time, the vulnerability to sabotage or catastrophic events is reduced.
BASE CAMP CONNECT is a communication solution designed to provide continuity in your mission. Communication must be maintained. No matter if there was an attack, a military crisis, or a disaster. BASE CAMP CONNECT are also easy to use solutions and do not require extensive training.
Resilient, decentralized, and interoperable networks are required wherever different authorities and organizations cooperate and communicate. This includes
The BASE CAMP CONNECT communication hubs enable public safety authorities to maintain a stable communication network even in times of crisis. Different authorities can communicate together across regions. This even between civilian and military units and across different equipment standards. BASE CAMP CONNECT provides a reliable emergency communications system when resilience and mission continuity are critical.
BASE CAMP CONNECT provides you with interoperable systems that allow coalition partners to focus on the mission and not on their various communication devices. You do not have to share encryption keys with your partners. Communications are secured within the system. These communication systems, which enable a resilient and decentralized communication infrastructure, are already in use in various NATO units.
Mobile rescue teams around the world depend on mobile, portable, and stable communications. They communicate with rescue teams from around the world and across agencies and organizations. BASE CAMP CONNECT provides exactly this interoperable communication solution that rescue units need especially for domestic operations (DOMOPS) and international rescue operations with different international partners.
BASE CAMP CONNECT is not only suitable for authorities to maintain communication. In times of crisis or disaster, the industry also wants to maintain communication with, for example, production or the CEO. BASE CAMP CONNECT offers you exactly this possibility in terms of business continuity. Such a case should be part of your civil crisis plan.
Stability means diversity. And that in turn means interoperability – What is interoperability? “Interoperability” is the ability of devices to work together and be usable within a system. In the case of emergency responders, this means being able to communicate with each other nonetheless via systemically different communication systems, i.e. being able to exchange voice and/or data with each other.
One example is firefighting – cooperation in disaster management: Why digital interoperability is particularly important here? Interoperable communications are critical for organizations such as fire departments, police forces, ambulances, and technical relief organizations because they need to be able to communicate quickly and effectively across different communication channels. This communication significantly supports the saving of lives. In addition, functioning communication helps to increase mission success, keep resource deployment low, and helps to warn your rescue team of danger. In operational situations, emergencies, and crisis situations, this smooth cooperation between different organizations is therefore essential.
In situations that are difficult to plan in advance, such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or a blackout, but also in planned major events, the authorities ensure the safety of the population. Voice communication between the operations control centers and the respective emergency forces is of central importance.
Cross-national and cross-organizational communication solutions in crisis situations. Communication between the different hierarchical levels of an organization is already a challenge. This becomes evident in crisis situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, flood disasters, or national and international rescue and recovery operations. The communication between different organizations of one country or even between different organizations of different countries, for example in large earthquake disasters, increases the complexity enormously. It is precisely in such times that it is crucial to be able to act quickly and effectively and to transmit the right information to the right people. A reliable, robust, and modern analog/digital communications solution is essential for this.
Awareness of risks and the need to prevent them is therefore becoming increasingly important in our society. At the same time, it is essential to build the capacity of the state, the economy, and the population to prepare for hazardous situations and deal with the consequences. Crises and disasters can only be prevented by the interaction of governmental and non-governmental actors from different disciplines and levels of action, and managed by pooling all available resources.
Many governments are therefore pursuing a comprehensive, networked approach. Such a resilience strategy formulates goals and measures for such a path. It is intended to contribute nationally and internationally to strengthening resilience to disasters.
Centralized and decentralized – In decentralized networking, the communication points speak directly to each other. With centralized networking, the communication points do not talk directly to each other, but via a so-called HUB. This significantly reduces the number of interfaces required.
Decentralization means spatial separation – If the redundant systems are not independent and separate from the standard supply system, there is an increased risk. This also means a corresponding spatial separation or mobility of the systems. The diversity of systems, channels, and also locations contributes significantly to the redundancy and resilience of communications. In the event of an emergency – whether a blackout, regional power failure, natural disaster, or terrorist attack – rescue and security forces must be able to be reliably alerted and must be able to use the same systems to handle communications during operations.
A second infrastructure is therefore advisable, that much has been recognized in each case. It is safer if this infrastructure is also structured differently. The decentralized structure is the magic word here which promises additional security. In addition, it is exciting if the time infrastructure succeeds in integrating the primary paths such as fixed network telephony or mobile telephony. The result is a three-dimensional and resilient communication infrastructure.
Example: What we learn from guerrilla tactics for communication.
The term guerrilla or guerrilla warfare originally comes from Spanish and means small-scale warfare, a military fighting unit. Its first significant use was in the resistance struggle against Napoleon. Guerrilla warfare is fought between unequal opponents.
It is important to us: we do not advocate war and we are explicitly against it. However, lessons should be learned in every respect. In the case of guerrilla tactics, it is also this that these decentralized groups have high resilience. Even if one group fails, the larger whole continues to function. This also applies to the continuation of the communication channels. This is exactly where we can start with our learnings. Modern communication in tactical units can be set up exactly according to this pattern. Vulnerable headquarters and central offices are increasingly superfluous.
Resilient communication is able to absorb or at least mitigate the impact of a disruption. A disruptive challenge is an event or circumstance which unplanned interrupts normal life.
Resilience The diversity of systems – We should not rely on just one communications technology. Regional events such as power outages, major incidents, or simply overloading of data and communication networks can cause chains of messages and information to be interrupted. In the private as well as those of the rescue equipment. A single perfect and central solution does not seem to exist. Decentralized and diverse systems promise a much better chance. Of course, this is only possible if these systems can function together in an interoperable manner.
Let’s take a look at the dangerous situation – Hazards and Increasing Risks Between 2000 and 2019, an estimated 1.23 million people worldwide lost their lives to hydrological, meteorological, and geophysical disasters. More than 4 billion people were affected, meaning they were injured, homeless, displaced, separated from family members, or required emergency assistance. While geophysical events-mainly earthquakes and tsunamis accounted for the majority of deaths, meteorological events such as storms and other extreme weather events caused the most economic damage (Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters and United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction 2020).
Example: Secure healthcare communications in crisis and emergency situations. Current events in Europe are increasing our need for security – This is especially true in the healthcare sector. As a result, secure communication within an organization such as a hospital, as well as with external partners and stakeholders in the healthcare sector, is becoming increasingly important.
Clinics and hospitals are even more directly dependent on functioning communication channels than other organizations. This is true for data as well as for voice communication. Human lives depend directly on the infrastructure functioning reliably.
A limited exchange as it occurs especially in crisis and emergency situations can have enormous consequences for patient care and for employees. The resilience of communication systems is therefore of crucial importance precisely here
