Civil Safety Application (CSA)
Real-time mobile phone location data has benefits for civilians as well as for many public institutions such as law enforcement, fire department and rescue services. Determining the exact point of origin can be critical in case of 911/112 calls.
CSA and 911 Applications have been created for:
Real-time mobile positioning makes it possible to send out the rescue, police or ambulance crew in a situation when a caller is not able to specify their location or if there are simply too many similar place names to consider.
CSA locates the callers mobile phone within a few seconds with an accuracy of up to 50 meters and places the result visually on the map, either on desktop or to the rescuers phone.
In addition, CSA enables to set up a real-time tracking which monitors the subscriber's movement in chosen intervals. It generates alarms upon the subscriber’s movements, indicating whether the subscriber is staying inside the area, leaving the area, entering the area or getting close to a specific area. The user of CSA can see the warning on the monitor or receive it by SMS. This allows to re-route traffic quickly in case of accidents or send evacuation route information in case of landslides, earthquakes, wildfires and tsunamis.
Reach-U created the first CSA like solution with live positioning service in the world. The development of a solution for locating emergency callers began in cooperation with Ericsson in December 1999. It was installed in the EMT network (TeliaSonera-owned mobile operator in Estonia) in May 2000.
