Whether training for, or managing large-scale emergencies, collaboration is key. Information management tools that support a Common Operating Picture (COP) allow information to be effectively structured and disseminated to key players. The use of Eclipse Runtime Technologies has allowed us to develop such tools, that we are now turning into frameworks for simulation and information dashboards. RCP, RAP, GEF, Equinox and ECF have empowered us to produce systems that have been highly effective in various training and operational settings.
Come to this talk to find out how:
And of course we will talk about lessons learned and the technical challenges in providing these capabilities.
