VITAL ALERT IS FEATURED IN WORLD COAL MAGAZINE!
VITAL ALERT provides very low frequency [VLF] TTE communication links in hard-to-service areas such as mines, subways, pipelines, and tunnels. Locations where obstructions like rock and concrete are common, often for less than half the cost of alternatives. This solution complements core network technologies such as leaky feeder and mesh wireless, acting as a reliable and cost effective back-up and a means to extend networks into difficult areas.
VITAL ALERT'S Canary™ technology uses magnetic induction, advanced digital communications techniques and ultra-low frequency transmission, to wirelessly provide reliable 2-way voice, text, or data links through rock strata and other solid media.
Canary™ can provide an emergency warning system with two-way real-time communications between surface and underground. The equipment is provided with standard audio and data interfaces, allowing it to be connected to a wide variety of communications devices such as sensors and RFID tags.
VITAL ALERT'S system can be used with RFID readers to track people as well as assets in challenging underground environments, as well as for sensor monitoring of various conditions such as heat and pressure. We have filed a patent for a portable, backpack-sized TTE system, which has significant applications in emergency response and law enforcement.
We welcome inquiries from interested potential customers, governmental organizations, potential partners, or sales channels.

Vital Alert was invited to submit a technical article for the February 2013 edition of World Coal Magazine which focused on coal mine safety. Mike Roper, Vital Alert's CTO, authored the article which explain how Canary Through-The-Earth communication technology can be used for voice and text communication during an underground event.
March 6, 2012 Vital Alert has successfully demonstrated its CanaryLink Through-The-Earth Communication system (formerly known as the C1000) in an active mining operation in Chile
