Go to... The Requirement The Solution The Benefits The Technology


As part of our public-sector client’s responsibility to maintain public safety they operate three helicopters from their Air Support Unit (ASU), covering a major UK city. Operating 24 hours a day and flying an average of 275 hours per month, the helicopters are vital observation and communication platforms.

Although the helicopters are fairly recent arrivals, the ASU command and control room had not changed significantly since the 1990s. To improve the operations and efficiencies of the ASU, our client required an overhaul of the room and chose Cinos to carry out the work within a limited budget and crucially, without disrupting the ASU’s critical work in the skies above the city.

The ASU can now control the helipad lights, landing lights, siren, beacon and barriers from a single screen.
