The all new emergency notification system expands capabilities in an easy and responsive map-based solution

Airbus DS Communications, an entity of Airbus Defense and Space, has announced the launch of its new emergency notification solution, VESTA™ Alert. The new addition to the VESTA suite of products is a state-of-the-art, map-based solution that quickly and accurately identifies an area at risk to rapidly deliver critical information to the impacted population. The intuitive, easy-to-use interface can reduce costly training time for public safety organizations.

“In order to help make communities safer, Airbus DS Communications is continuing to innovate and develop new products to deliver on the evolving needs of the industry,” said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. “The VESTA Alert solution is a substantial leap forward and provides public safety officials a user-friendly tool that completes the communications circle needed to keep a community safe.”

The VESTA Alert solution offers a rich mapping experience. Users can quickly pan, zoom and search areas through detailed street level maps and high-quality aerial imagery. The solution includes Airbus DS Communications’ MassCall® service, which provides the capability to originate hundreds of thousands of calls per hour.

“We are thrilled to have the VESTA Alert solution for our community,” said Gary Critzer, Director of Emergency Management and EMS for Waynesboro, Va. “It offers many features we were searching for and we found the product extremely responsive and very simple to activate. Our team can now execute a session in five minutes or less.”

The VESTA Alert solution is delivered through secure web browser-based access, which eliminates the need to install software locally and download large GIS data sets to each computer.

Additional product features include Integrated Public Alert & Warning System capability, weather alert integration, hazmat emergency response guide-based alerts, and a Self-Registration Portal for public sign up.
