This latest phase will enable the state police to deploy wireless mobile data terminals and software in approximately 630 vehicles. This $6.9 million system addition follows a limited rollout of the project in south central and southeastern Pennsylvania, which was completed last year. The mobile data terminals and software will provide troopers a broad range of data communications capabilities right from their vehicles in the field.
The IMO project is part of the state's new Criminal Investigative/Traffic Safety Incident Information Management System (IIMS) initiated in 1999 by then Governor Tom Ridge. The mobile data solution is a collaborative effort between Motorola and the state police IIMS Mobile Office Team. This process included the design of the screen and keyboard mounts and the inclusion of an on-screen keyboard using touch screen capabilities.
