CAAS launches beefed-up simulator for emergencies

It can produce more realistic scenarios and connect with other simulators to boost teamwork. An improved simulator that can generate more realistic emergency scenarios was launched yesterday to train airport workers. Called the Airport Foam Tender Driving Simulator, it is used to train workers who drive special vehicles called foam tenders, which use foam and water to put out fires at the airport. The enhanced system can generate scenarios such as those involving evacuating passengers from a burning aircraft. It has also been updated to reflect the latest Changi Airport layout, including the upcoming Terminal 4. "As air traffic continues to grow, so too must our capabilities in ensuring a sa

Where is the money in geospatial industry?

Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. The world is changing. The next wave of Industrial Revolution, also known as the Second Machine Age, is fundamentally changing each and every aspect of our life. It is the power of the World Wide Web and the onset of smartphones that has unleashed a movement which is rapidly destroying the old models. Smart machines can now deliver a pizza on our dinner plates, turn on the AC at our residence as we start off from the office in a driverles

Most People Can’t Communicate at All

Most people can’t communicate at all. Often it seems that people are sharing a space, simply waiting for their turn to talk. We aren’t listening and we aren’t paying attention to the environment around us. Peter Drucker is quoted as saying, “The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.” But how do we learn to hear what isn’t said? Practice is a great way to learn how to converse effectively, but not all practice is created equal. People have a natural tendency to avoid confrontation, so we avoid the situations where we could learn. In addition, when overwhelmed by a situation, it is difficult to process what happened and actually learn how to communicate bet

Blog: Marching Toward Virtualization in Modern Warfare

For too long, warfighters have struggled with issues of space, weight and power, each posing major problems in tactical environments. Networking equipment historically has contributed to all three—barriers that must be expunged. Soldiers must travel light. Humvees that barely fit four people must serve as both transport vehicles and portable communication hubs. And networks must be powerful yet agile. Virtualization eliminates dependence on bulky and balky legacy systems. Applications run in shared environments, saving personnel the headaches involved in constantly installing, running and managing actual networks. The result is massive time, space and weight savings and better communication

Viewing Cyber Data in 3-D

LinQuest Corporation modifies its 3D ICE product to meet cyber needs. LinQuest Corporation officials are now offering a new game-based technology that allows cyber analysts to view data in an immersive 3-D environment, which the company says allows quicker understanding of the data, saving users both time and money. The 3-D Cyber Immersive Collaboration Environment (ICE) allows analysts to create a 3-D virtual world in which users are represented as avatars able to interact with big data analytics and/or real-time systems. The virtual world includes video feeds, data feeds, web interfaces, data visualizations and analytical tools. Once the crisis is over, the virtual world and its super meta

Elbit hands over driving simulators to two Nato armies

Elbit Systems has supplied advanced driving simulators to the armed forces of two Nato member countries. The company designed, produced and delivered three types of driving simulator, including KMW's DINGO 2, a 4x4 mine-protected vehicle; GD-MOWAG's Piranha IIIC, an 8x8 armoured infantry fighting vehicle; and IVECO's Trakker, a 6x6 off-road truck. The simulators can be operated in stand-alone and convoy training modes, and used to simulate a range of on and off-road driving conditions in tracked and wheeled combat vehicles. Elbit Systems aerospace division general manager Yoram Shmuely said: "These high-fidelity driving simulators are part of our global land-based training programmes, which
