Visualization in the Air, Rail and Port realm is multi-faceted. Route management and passenger security are of vital importance, but passengers also rely on continuous updates to stay informed of departure status and to monitor weather conditions. Maximizing visualization of real-time information through the use of video wall technologies in the Transportation Management Center is paramount in ensuring the safety of commuters and our vulnerable airports, seaports and railways.
Logistics and operations are affected by natural-occurring weather events as well as by physical threats. Operators in these mission critical spaces that are prime targets for terrorism must have access to reliable weather information that would indicate potential catastrophic conditions such as high winds, fire and tornados along with security data including vehicles tracking, cargo status, radiation monitoring, PLUME detection and more. As passenger and employee safety is of utmost concern, Operations Centers are equipped to surveil terrestrial spaces and entry points and monitor and manage through SCADA systems, measuring the number of passengers to board and disembark.
Whether a Global Operations Center focused on the logistics of its fleet of aircraft traveling safely from Point A to Point B, a Commuter Railway SOC ensuring the tracks ahead are clear or a bustling Seaport tracking the locations of shipping containers, each relies on the operator’s ability to disseminate critical data efficiently, quickly and safely and to seamlessly collaborate with the necessary agencies and departments for assessment and escalation. Automation of actionable intelligence is a key-factor in simplifying decision processes and responding to critical events.
