HiMoNN provides a flexible and secure broadband communications solution that is automatically set up and immediately available between vehicles on the spot. With this - different client devices as well as sensors can communicate in real time. Additionally, HiMoNN has a GPS functionality to visualize the current position of the HiMoNN devices in a monitoring display. Transmissions to other networks and the connection to remote control centers are possible via mobile, satellite, directional radioor terrestrial networks. This allows for example direct access to data bases in the police department from the operation site.
HiMoNN is based on ad-hoc networking technology and thus does not require any stationary communications infrastructure. The ability of each communication node simultaneously to act as a relay increases the possible distances between senders and receivers and permits establishing a communications network over several square kilometres. This way the network can be spread to locations that are not covered by an existing stationary communications infrastructure, as may be necessary with operations in tunnels, if the existing infrastructure is destroyed by a disaster or terrorist attack. Networks often must be extended for operations in buildings where steel and concrete prevent connection to external radio communications networks.
HiMoNN optimizes itself automatically depending on the current scenery conditions and the dynamically changing positions of the relief units. It is simple to operate, allows to quickly deploy a broadband network at any operation site and thus is an expedient supplement to narrow-banded analog and digital radio systems.
