In a post last week about the Charleston County’s Consolidated 9-1-1 Center and Emergency Operations Center, it was mentioned that SCRA had provided Alastar™, a wide-area situational awareness tool. Developed by SCRA, Alastar™ is a geospatial information sharing technology that provides public sector personnel, both in operation centers and first responders, with enhanced, shared situational awareness.
Alastar™ assimilates large data sets into easily understandable geospatial views that provide end users with a clear understanding of complex situations so that they can make rapid decisions. It is specially designed for interagency cooperation and it includes various types of geospatial data layers, video from multiple sources, environmental and infrastructure information, transportation data and asset location. The software can also be personalized for the various user roles and responsibilities and is designed for mobile applications.
Public safety and emergency personnel rely on data such as traffic patterns, crime statistics, and environmental factors to make accurate and timely decisions and Alastar™ is designed to provide these professionals with “the big picture.”
For more information about the software’s capabilities or how SCRA can provide “domain awareness” solutions, visit the Alastar™ webpage or contact Scott Beeson at 843.760.4357 or email@example.com.
