The GPS signal is too weak to penetrate buildings and when appliances are parked inside the fire station, they are unable to receive the signal. Therefore, when they leave the station in an emergency, it can sometimes take valuable seconds or minutes to lock onto the GPS signal.
Chronos’ Ofcom compliant GPS repeater solutions bring the GPS signal inside FRS ensuring excellent indoor GPS coverage at all times. Fire appliances have a constant lock on to the GPS signal while inside the fire station enabling command and control centres to have constant access to the wherabouts of appliances. Upon exiting, the satnav device does not take valuable seconds or minutes to re-acquire the GPS signal. Chronos offers custom GPS repeating kits that can be installed into whatever type of structure you have.
