07 Nov Orions Systems Helps Train Emergency Teams on Advanced Video Intelligence
Orions Systems recently participated in Urban Shield, a national event for law enforcement and safety personnel that tests their emergency preparation The event incorporates the guiding principles from the National Response Framework (NRF) to assist tactical teams as well as all first responders, to prepare for and provide a unified response to disasters and major emergencies with about 6,000 regional law enforcement and firefighters attending.
Orions Systems joined organizations including Visa and Stanford in supporting the event, helping response teams prepare for multiple emergency situations. Orions was there with partner Mutualink helping to modify technology on the fly to understand what types of future technology, particularly the management of video and image intelligence, will help save lives and reduce the dangers faced by these teams.
The event included 35 scenarios to help train emergency personnel on everything from active shooter situations to detecting radiological devices or materials. In all scenarios better capture, management, analysis and intelligence from video and images played a key role.
