Nebraska adds CNC mission suite to State Patrol JetRanger
CNC's customised law enforcement solution allows air crews to stream uninterrupted HD video and data from the aircraft to commanders and officers on the ground. Ongoing training and support is provided.
CNC has developed a customized solution tailored to NSP’s specific law enforcement needs.

California-based aviation technology and wireless communications company CNC Technologies has delivered a completed Bell 505 Jet Ranger X helicopter with a full airborne mission suite for the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP). Installed by aircraft integrator AeroBrigham of Decatur, Texas, the mission suite provides the NSP with a comprehensive patrol, surveillance and communications solution that is fully interoperable with the agency's existing aircraft and technology infrastructure.

The project builds upon CNC's standing as a leading provider of airborne law enforcement solutions for the Bell 505. The company previously provided the tactical airborne mission suite for the Fort Worth Police Department Bell 505, as well as delivering microwave downlink solutions for the Omaha Police Department Bell 505 including CNC.LIVE, a proprietary defence-grade online portal for hosting, viewing and sharing real-time aerial downlink footage from multiple aircraft and drones in a central location.

By incorporating an L3/Wescam MX10 imager, Shotover/Churchill Systems moving map, Macro Blue monitor, Trakka TLX searchlight and Troll Systems microwave downlink system to the new mission suite, CNC has developed a customised solution tailored to NSP's specific law enforcement needs. Air crews will be able to utilise the solution to stream uninterrupted HD video and data from the aircraft to commanders and officers on the ground, utilising the agency's existing Troll Systems microwave downlink infrastructure.

“The CNC team has delivered a cutting-edge law enforcement mission equipment package for our new Bell 505,” says NSP Lt Brian Petersen. “CNC is also providing ongoing training and 24/7 support for the new mission suite, and we look forward to our on-going partnership with it in support of our public safety mission.”

“We are excited to have delivered another completed Bell 505, this one to Nebraska State Patrol,” adds CNC founding partner and CTO Ron Magocsi. “We look forward to working together on an ongoing basis to support their law enforcement efforts.”
