Vision Technologies Installs the First Private Commercial Building Public Safety Distributed Antenna System in Arlington, Virginia

GLEN BURNIE, MD, November 27, 2013Vision Technologies, Inc., a leading IT Services provider and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business, commissioned the first Public Safety Distributed Antenna System (PSRS) in the largest privately funded LEED Platinum office tower in the mid-Atlantic area; one of only a handful in the country. A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) improves in-building wireless coverage and enhances capacity. This is just what the $345 million 35-story tower building in downtown Arlington, Virginia soaring 300 feet over the Potomac River with 580,000 of Class A office space needed.


Vision Technologies worked with General Contractor Clark Construction, and Property Developer Monday Properties to design, engineer and install the Public Safety DAS. Vision also worked closely with the Arlington County Governments Office of Emergency Management Radio Team to coordinate, deploy and integrate this system to their standards, to ensure that the system would provide complete interoperability with their emergency responder’s radios, as well Arlington’s 911 call center. Arlington County is one of the nation’s leaders in establishing a cohesive interoperability standard for public safety radio enhancement systems throughout the county.


The work performed by the Vision team surpassed the customer’s and County’s expectations. During radio testing for signal strength and audibility in the most difficult areas of the building, five stories below ground in the parking garage, the county found that the signal level and quality far exceeded the requirements. Donald Winsock, Arlington County Emergency Communications Supervisor, commented that he had “full level radio signal; something that has never happened before” in any building that he ever tested. The Consultant, Monday properties, and Arlington County are confident in Vision’s ability to successfully complete future DAS installations around the county.
