                         Technology for Crisis Management – An Ever Present Need
                                                Recent Events
   Events over the last few years, including the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, the London 2005
   Bombings, Hurricane Katrina and the Buncefield Oil Depot explosion have bought Crisis Management into
   the limelight. Effective crisis management and response can minimise the effects of an incident, save lives,
   prevent further damage and facilitate a speedy return to normality.

       Application of Cutting Edge Technology
     TRT (UK) is developing technologies aimed at
     assisting those involved in managing crises
     and other emergencies. The main area under
     development is decision-enabling technology
     for incident command and control. This is
     supported by technologies for visualisation,
     communications,      security,    information
     management and situation monitoring, areas
     in which TRT (UK) has extensive experience.


     The application of such technologies will result
     in the faster provision of better, accurate
     intelligence to the decision makers, thus
     facilitating an improved incident response. In
     addition to the real-time data processing, large
     amounts of recorded data and intelligence can
     be more easily managed through the use of
     intelligent data management and analysis
     tools, for use in pre-incident preparations and
     post-incident investigations.
