The Norwegian software company Teleplan Globe has delivered a mobile command and control system to the police in the German state of Brandenburg.

In light of the events on 22 July 2011 and the lack of operational IT solutions pointed out in Police analysis, the company has since 2013 developed the system in cooperation with the Norwegian police.
The system is called Nora and has been adopted by the special sections of the Norwegian police. Now  interest in the system is growing among police units internationally as well.
In late January  Teleplan Globe signed a contract with T-Systems and their software partner Tonfunk Group. By the end of February, Nora will be installed by the police in Brandenburg.
The level of satisfaction with the system by the customers has been so high that T-Systems has already started negotiations with police in several other states in Germany about installing the system.
Jørn Skilleås, director of the police and civil protection with Teleplan Globe, said that the system facilitates operational flow of information in real time across different police units, emergency and states.
