Vital Alert Communication Inc. Recently Selected for Award by NIOSH

THORNHILL, Ontario – Vital Alert Communication, developer of the Through-The-Earth Communication system, has been selected for award by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in the United States..


Vital Alert responded to the NIOSH Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Development and Demonstration of Mine Safety and Health Technology with a proposal to enhance the reliability and distance capabilities of its CanaryLink Through-The-Earth Communication system.


The contract is focused on the development of advanced software radio techniques to reduce the effects of magnetic noise. Vital Alert’s system currently supports real time voice for a distance of over 300 metres and text for over 600 metres. While power is normally shut down during mine emergencies, at other times electrical noise from power centers and high voltage cables can reduce the operational range. These new techniques will extend the system capability to include daily operational applications, and also allow the system to achieve greater distances for voice, text and data in lower noise environments.


The CanaryLink and CanaryGO systems are easy-to-use, effective Through-The-Earth Communication devices that are intended to be an indispensable part of a fully integrated mine communication and safety system. They link to existing communication infrastructure and can be used for everyday as well as emergency needs.


Products are commercially available.
