Chartis Federal participated in the Homeland Security Dialogue Forum’s second Annual Border Security Symposium and Reception on Wednesday, November 13th. This event advanced the discussion between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and industry on the progression of technology and its impact on the agencies’ mission strategies and operations.
“This event allowed us to better understand the tactical communication needs and infrastructure challenges facing the Department and its components,” said Mr. Brian Creswick, Chief Operations Officer at Chartis. “This event was also a great opportunity to introduce attendees to our Periscope UAVs, which provide mission-critical solutions for public safety, law enforcement, and homeland security.”
Chartis built its Periscope Lab in McLean, VA to evaluate emerging technologies and support research and development (R&D) for customer needs. Its first initiative – Periscope Aviation – aims to deliver optimized Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for enhanced Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). Initial operational capabilities include advanced video surveillance, heavy-lift supply delivery, and extended communications coverage and backhaul in remote areas.
