Looking for Wireless Network and Laptop Information
I am proposing outfitting all of our apparatus with Laptops and having them work over a wireless network with connection to dispatch. This is for a school project that I hope to incorporate into a reality for my Dept through the possibility of Grants. Problem is I don't know where to start, I have been Googling things and reading some information. But we are in the Northeast, Metrowest in Massachusetts, and I have read that we would want the most rugged systems. But this is what I would like the system to accomplish:
GPS and turn by turn directions to incident scene
Pre Plan information including Hydrant, Box, Electrical Room locations, etc.
Information gathered for different locations, dog on scene, "enter through side door", knox box on Beta side of building, etc
Cameo and other Emergency Response Software
Communication with Dispatch
Possibility of having PDA's on the Wireless system as well for Officers
Am I reaching for too much, again, this is a school project but something I would like to implement at some time in the future with Grant Monies. Can somebody point me in the right direction.
