Crime and Incident Reporting Platform (MCIRP), an advanced 3Gbased security solution on a Mobile-based system, has been developed for the National Investigation Agency (NIA) by the Technoparkbased MobME Wireless Ltd.
MCIRP is a project funded by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) and an exclusive solution devised for the NIA to tackle crime and prevent acts of terrorism.
The prototype of the project was first developed for Kochi City Police and was based on 2G technology for Crime and Accident Reporting.
Later, the platform was scaled up using advance technology and encompassing 3G technology to develop an indigenous platform to cater to the specific needs of the NIA.
Usually officers, equipped with walkie-talkies, struggle to communicate the gravity of the situation/accident/ crime to the agency or control room, several kilometres away.
With MCIRP, which is built using MobShare technology, the personnel can take pictures, video and audio recordings and text content of the riot, bomb blast or crime scene along with geo-location tagging.
25 Motorola Defy+ Smartphones have been handed over to the NIA as part of the project.
The pre-programmed application will show the time, date and location in the photo, video and audio recordings in the control-room, providing the necessary data.
It also enables to visualise and understand the actual scene and coordinate necessary action efficiently.
‘’NIA officers are constantly on the move for various investigations and it was ourneed for having a secure communication system that can interact with a central server to relay information.
The MCIRP Platform developed with the support of DSIR works perfectly for sending information from our officers on the site to a central system in a secure and efficient manner,’’ said Loknath Behera, Inspector General, National Investigation Agency.
‘’The Platform has been customised to meet our specific requirements as well,’’ he added.
‘’Running on a Motorola Defy+ Handset, the smartphone is waterproof and scratch proof thus aiding the NIA officers to record and transfer images/ videos from the scene of incidents such as bomb blasts,’’ said Sanjay Vijayakumar, CEO, MobME Wireless.
