USAF installs AtHoc interactive warning system for shared situational awareness

The US Air Force (USAF) has installed AtHoc's interactive warning system (IWS) on iPads in its emergency operations and communication centres for shared situational awareness at multiple bases.

The US Air Force (USAF) has installed AtHoc’s interactive warning system (IWS) on iPads in its emergency operations and communication centres for shared situational awareness at multiple bases.

Certified for use by federal government and Department of Defense customers, IWS bridges gaps in critical response communication relays between first responders and supporting communication centres.

IWS enables a common operating network of visual interaction and collaboration for all USAF emergency services during critical situations.

The USAF branches supported by the system from the time an emergency is called in to the time personal safety and crisis is resolved, includes command post, police, fire and medical services, as well as emergency operation centres.

"Featuring an advanced crisis visibility and information coordination application, IWS solution suite enables operation centres to view an event through photos, audio, video, texts, and maps to assess an unfolding event."

AtHoc Defense and Intelligence Group vice-president David Brown said: "AtHoc has been partnering with the Air Force since day one to strengthen its crisis communication capabilities, and is currently helping to protect more than 700,000 USAF personnel around the world.

"We look forward to continuing our relationship as the Air Force leads the way within the government and Department of Defense to deliver secure, next-generation IP-based communication technologies that protect lives and property, including remote areas of the world where troops are deployed."

Featuring an advanced crisis visibility and information coordination application, IWS solution suite enables operation centres to view an event through photos, audio, video, texts, and maps to assess an unfolding event.

Emergency managers can send maps of cordoned areas to security forces and forward evacuation routes to affected personnel.

The application called AtHoc IWSAware, fuels rapid event assessment, informed decisions and effective incident response.

AtHoc’s end-to-end mission-critical suite of applications, including IWSAlerts, IWSDuress, IWSFieldReport, and IWSAccountability, are used by government and commercial organisations worldwide during emergencies.
