NextNav, a provider of next generation GPS, has partnered with Valor Systems to provide its z-axis vertical location capabilities. The addition of this technology in Valor’s software will help first responders, public safety agencies, and corporate security clients to better pinpoint the location of threats and civilians as well as improve response times.

NextNav’s Pinnacle offering delivers precise location data in 4,400 cities and towns in the U.S. and powers applications for first responders to support stronger situational awareness.

With the Pinnacle network added to Valor's Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) products and mobile suite of software solutions, these teams now have a way to precisely pinpoint where an emergency is happening.

"Today's environment presents newfound challenges to all agencies tasked with serving and protecting our nation. All responders require the utmost in protection and safety, and NextNav's Pinnacle z-axis service ensures that the agencies Valor serves are securely located throughout their respective missions in real time" said Dan Hight, VP of Business Development.

Features such as 3D visualizations of emergencies as they’re happening further improve response time and strengthen safety efforts. For dense urban environments, it also offers drastic improvements over the 2D location capabilities traditionally used.

"Through the Pinnacle network service, Valor's customers will have refined intelligence and in-building location of all personnel, a critical factor in today's era where multi-agency, multi-discipline mobilization and/or threat modeling is required,” said Hight.
