Tesseract Ventures announced today that the company has been awarded a contract for its cutting-edge Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System at MacDill Air Force Base. The sophisticated anchoring system is designed to meet the demands of any military base requiring an alert route or upgrading its existing system to surpass established standards. Built on state-of-the-art data stream technologies, LTE M1, the Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System is engineered to modernize connectivity across an entire military installation, command region, or global operations ensuring the rapid response of today’s warfighters.
John Boucard, Tesseract Ventures CEO said, “Tesseract continues its focused mission to revolutionize the way people live, work, and play by developing state-of-the-art technologies and systems that enhance safety, connectivity, and efficiency.”
Built on state-of-the-art data stream technologies, LTE M1, the Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System is engineered to modernize connectivity across an entire military installation, command region, or global operations ensuring the rapid response of today’s warfighters. The system integrates an integrated solar charge controller and battery system capable of sustaining operations without the need to route the main voltage to each sign. This innovative design enables the signage to be placed on existing or newly installed streetlights or posts throughout a military installation. Furthermore, the signage can be integrated with existing Command Post/Base Defense Operations Centers infrastructure. Each module in the system can display either a standardized static image sign, utilizing Department of Transportation reflective colors and high-intensity flashing light modules, or our soon-to-be-released digital sign modules, capable of displaying any number of customized signs, including “Active Shooter”, Tornado Evac Routes, and custom displays as selected by commanding officers.
Key features of the Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System include:
Solar-charged, long-life battery power suitable for remote locations
DOT regulation signage with custom routes per location
Individually or system-wide addressability
High-intensity LED flashers
LTE M1 data connectivity
Extra bright LED lighting with site-specific routing
Remote activation and over-the-air
EMP tested for survivability
The Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System is designed for easy installation, with compatibility with existing light posts or new posts provided by Tesseract. No power connection is needed thanks to the solar charging system and installed battery.
