Terrorist response [AAD16D2]

15 September 2016

Paramount Advanced Technologies (PAT) is demonstrating a simulated joint command post that has been developed to provide a base from which commanders can effectively respond to a crisis and asymmetric threats such as a terrorist attack.

The command post draws in technology from 10 different domestic and international companies.

PAT’s joint command post has been engineered to extract the maximum benefit from limited resources, allowing many countries in the region to better exploit their assets. Integrating a range of systems, the command post displays tactical pictures in either 2D or 3D, with friendly assets and enemy positions. The demonstration at AAD shows how the system can present tracking information for air, sea and land vehicles, and real-time video and still imagery from various sensors.

Command plans can be overlaid, which can be updated in real time as events dictate.

Together these displays provide commanders with the information they require to react decisively and rapidly to stabilise situations and effect a suitable response.

The demonstration at AAD aims to show how the analytics embedded in the system can be a true force-multiplier by facilitating the most advantageous deployment of friendly assets.
