While the whole world watches the World Cup in Russia, Ansat helicopters take part in rescuing tourists and football fans who decided to visit the country. Due to the use of air rescue aircraft, assistance comes very quickly even in the urban architecture, mass congestion and traffic congestion.
On the eve of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, all pilots of sanitary and rescue helicopters Ansat and Ka-32 underwent special training for flights in night conditions, and lighting equipment was installed at helicopter platforms located at hospitals. The crews in advance are flying planned sports training venues.
During the FIFA 2018 FIFA World Cup round-the-clock helicopter rides are organized in medical equipment. Every day Ansat and Ka-32 helicopters fly to the aid of injured people: an accident, a fall from a height or somatic diseases requiring emergency medical care (strokes, heart attacks, severe bleeding), rescue and search for people in a mountainous and inaccessible area. Evacuation to medical organizations is free for residents of Russia and the Moscow region. The service is paid from the city budget.
National Centre for Informatisation (NCI) of the Rostec State Corporation arranged telecommunication services for the opening ceremony and the first game of the FIFA World Cup 2018.
NCI launched more than 40 services and built a telecommunication infrastructure supporting Ultra HD TV broadcasts. HBS, the primary exclusive TV broadcaster of FIFA, transmitted broadcasts in the Ultra HD format to more than 200 countries and territories of the world using a 2x100 Gb/s redundant bandwidth network.
About 2,000 users used the network of more than 200 Wi-Fi spots deployed for the FIFA client groups at the stadium during the peak period. The system for remote simultaneous interpretation was used to translate the opening ceremony broadcast into 6 languages. Besides, the work of 25 international broadcasters was also arranged, and sports commentators were accountable for more than 10,000 minutes of international digital telephone traffic.
