FDNY purchases OSCR360 system
NEW YORK — L-Tron Corporation is pleased to announce that OSCR360 has been purchased by the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), one of the largest and busiest emergency response agencies in the country. FDNY provides public safety services in New York’s five boroughs, responding to over one million emergencies annually.
Earlier this year, FDNY first discovered OSCR at an in-person demonstration with the L-Tron team. The department followed up their demo with a successful test and evaluation period with an OSCR360 unit. This led directly to their purchase, and the delivery of their OSCR360 at the end of June.
OSCR360 is a patented courtroom presentation software and 360-degree crime scene documentation system, used nationwide for fire investigation, crime scene investigation, crash reconstruction, incident pre-planning, courtroom presentation, and public safety training/instruction. Large cities such as Austin, TX, Boston, MA, Philadelphia, PA and Sacramento, CA, as well as hundreds of smaller municipalities, currently utilize OSCR360.
In the courtroom, it can be difficult for prosecutors and expert witnesses to convey the details of an arson scene to a jury. With OSCR360, agencies fully capture and present interior and exterior fire scenes in 360-degrees, including unique circumstances such as small, confined spaces; dark, wet environments; and insecure, inaccessible structures.
OSCR can capture burn patterns, the point of origin of a fire, and other geospatial relationships, as well as integrate floor plans, and other digital evidence into a presentation. This ultimately creates a comprehensive virtual walkthrough of the scene.
L-Tron is excited to share that FDNY has purchased OSCR360, and our hope is that they will utilize the system to continue to serve the people of New York City. For more information or to support the FDNY, visit their foundation page here.
