CNC Technologies, a company serving law enforcement, military and government markets for aviation technology and wireless communications, has been selected by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to deploy an aerial video and data streaming video mission suite on the FDLE’s King Air 350 multi-engine aircraft.
The FDLE King Air 350 allows this agency to provide statewide aerial support to federal, state, and local agencies during natural disasters, counter-terrorism efforts, and criminal investigations.
“We will be equipping the FDLE’s King Air 350 with everything it needs to have reliable HD video and meta-data communications while airborne,” said Ron Magocsi, one of CNC Technologies’ founders, a managing partner and CTO.
“This will provide first responders from all levels of government with access to the unparalleled ‘eyes above’ situational awareness that only a camera-equipped aircraft like the King Air 350 can provide during man made and natural emergencies.”
Magocsi leads all aspects of the company’s technical operations, including the design and implementation of comprehensive intelligence solutions for law enforcement, government and military clients.
Ron has extensive experience creating robust surveillance and counter-intelligence systems for international, U.S. national, and local law enforcement authorities with particular expertise in airborne video and microwave downlink technology.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was established in 1967, created by combining the resources of the Florida Sheriffs Bureau, the State Narcotics Bureau, and the law enforcement activities of the Anti-Bookie Squad of the Attorney General’s Office.
The FDLE’s mission is “to promote public safety and strengthen domestic security by providing services in partnership with local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies to prevent, investigate, and solve crimes while protecting Florida’s citizens and visitors.”
The agency’s approximately 1,700 members achieve this goal through the FDLE’s agency headquarters in Tallahassee, plus seven regional operations centers located in Pensacola, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Fort Myers and Miami. The FDLE’s annual budget is over $300 million.
