CTAS is Comtech's fully integrated end-to-end WEA solution trusted by alert originators, authorities, and mobile network operators.
Wireless Emergency Alerts, or WEA (formally known as Commercial Mobile Alerts System-CMAS in the US), is a government-mandated system that enables authorized officials to inform the public about life-threatening events by automatically delivering emergency alerts to mobile devices (including roaming users) via the government alert gateway.
Our patented technology facilitates the origination and accurate delivery of geo-targeted emergency alerts, empowering emergency services providers to better serve the public. Mobile Network Operators can quickly broadcast emergency alerts to all devices in a specific geographical area. Our solution fully complies with ATIS and 3GPP standards, ensuring compliance with government regulations.
Comtech offers a complete end-to-end solution to the WEA system.
