StreetWise CADlink from HANGAR 14 SOLUTIONS is being heralded as a new breed of hybrid software for the fire and emergency services, combining response information with a full-featured pre-plan system. It is claimed to turn tablets into powerful mobile data computers through cloud-based server technology.
By integrating basic dispatch exports with a combination of local and public data stored in Hangar 14 Solutions’ servers, StreetWise CADlink enhances situational awareness, resource coordination, incident command and the creation of an instant common operating picture for all responding units. Pre-plans are simple to enter, seamlessly synchronised to all devices, and displayed on demand with photos and attachments, all right on the tablet.
Its many features include: incident location and type are sent to assigned tablets with audible alert; incidents are mapped automatically, with familiar “pinch-zoom” interface; AVL shows the location of other responding tablets/units in real time; community hazards are displayed graphically on the tactical map; navigational routing is available, with turn-by-turn directions and unique off-line capability; and hydrant layer shows location and touch-to-display data for water supply. Other features include: switch to satellite photo view; Google StreetView is integrated for interactive 360° photo; tactical waypoints can be dropped on the map; and pre-incident plans are stored in the server and accessed on any responding tablet.
With StreetWise CADlink new pre-plans are automatically synchronized to the server for immediate use; pre-incident planning photos also push to tablet; instant photo “share” feature can send incident photos to other responding tablets; unit status timestamps can be sent to the server for later retrieval; and agency log records every event and activity.
