The Smith Myers Artemis mobile phone detection and location system was successfully demonstrated at PavCon (Police Aviation Conference Europe) 2022. PavCon – acknowledged as an annual must-attend event for Police Aviation professionals and technology innovators – was hosted this year by Airborne Technologies at their headquarter and hangar facilities at Wiener Neustadt airport, south of Vienna, Austria. Airborne Technologies have integrated Smith Myers Artemis phone location system, SHOTOVER Systems Gear, augmented reality mission software, L3Harris WESCAM MX10 EO/IR camera, and ECS, Evenlode I air to ground video link into their Vulcanair P68 demonstrator aircraft. Two “hikers” were sent out into the hills with their phones. The aircraft performed a search pattern then located both hikers at separate positions. Artemis calculated the ‘lat’ and ‘long’, Gear read this and slew the L3Harris WESCAM MX-10 to look at the location. The first hiker was located and a call was made asking them to wave to the audience back in the hanger. This was repeated for the second hiker. The Airborne Sensor Operator’s (ASO’s) screen in the aircraft was relayed by the ECS Evenlode video link to the meeting room display, viewed by the PavCon attendees.
