Polaris Wireless announced the introduction of Altus Mobile, the industry’s first mobile location surveillance application, providing accurate mass location of all mobile devices operating on a cellular network, on-demand location, subscriber device tracking, and geo-fence capabilities to field agents on their mobile devices. This advanced application is powered by Polaris Wireless Location Signatures™ advanced technology and is the latest feature of Altus, the intelligent surveillance application suite for law enforcement and intelligence agencies worldwide. Altus is the industry’s only software-based surveillance solution that enables accurate mass location – providing users the ability to simultaneously locate all subscriber devices in a wireless network in real time and on a historical basis.

“Altus Mobile is the next step in the evolution of location-enabled surveillance," said Mahesh Patel, senior vice president of technology and products at Polaris Wireless. “Field agents now have a robust toolkit that provides two-way interaction, increases effectiveness, and ultimately saves lives.”

Altus Mobile allows field agents to simultaneously track suspects on a Smartphone or tablet, and make life-or-death decisions in real time by receiving up-to-date intelligence from headquarters, such as:

  • Past and current locations of suspects
  • Locations where two or more suspects meet
  • Occasions where suspects enter/exit a restricted area
  • Visualization of suspects’ surroundings by augmented reality
  • Nearby locations of authorities (police, military, etc.)

Polaris Wireless executives will be previewing Altus Mobile at International CTIA Wireless® from May 8-10, 2012 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
