-- Cassidian demonstrates that a super-accurate 'simulated environment' can better prepare emergency responders for the increasingly complex and unpredictable nature of 'real life' incidents in a variety of sectors from the military to law enforcement and aviation. It has is thought to be the first to use Gaming technology as the graphics are more advanced and can create even more 'life life' training scenarios.
It will this week be demonstrating the state of the art simulation training software that has been used by the UK police to test their response to both overt and covert counter terrorist incidents using a simulated environment.
Exhibiting the software at the ITEC Defence Training & Simulation Conference in London this week, Cassidian has considerable experience working with the police and other blue light services on cutting edge technology solutions designed to improve operational effectiveness and maximise resources.
In 2010 Gwent Police were one of the first UK police forces to use cutting edge 3D mapping technology to help them co-ordinate the policing operation of the Ryder Cup.
Developed by Cassidian, the technology provided senior officers with a 3D model/map of the venue for this historic sporting event - and allowed them to track their officers as avatars on the 3D map. This can be seen on the Cassidian stand (F130).
