NSW State Emergency Service
NSW State Emergency Service (NSWSES) is tasked with responding to the most costly of natural disasters that also have the greatest potential to disrupt communications systems. The CoW is a proof-of-concept trunked p25 cell-on-wheels developed for use on the NSW Government Radio Network.
Based on key learnings from a number of incidents, the SES CoW addresses challenges encountered with the traditional trailer-based form factor, facilitating deployment over rugged terrain and even by air. A total of 5 CoWs will be built as part of SES resilient communications strategy to enhance frontline worker safety and available to all public safety agencies.
