|Cassidian will also introduce its updated training simulation software for the heavyweight EOD robot tEODor|
CASSIDIAN showcased its expertise and innovative ability in terms of Holistic Explosives & Ammunition Training (HEAT) at the Annual Congress for Bomb Technicians and Post Blast Investigators which was held by the German BKA (Federal Criminal Police Office) in Magdeburg on 23-25 November.
Cassidian will present three major innovations:
Telemax Training Simulation Software - For the first time, Cassidian will present the initial version of its unique training simulation software for the Telemax Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) robot system. Elaborated since March 2010 in collaboration with the robot supplier Telerob, the software is scheduled to be fully operational in February 2011. With moving, turning around and grabbing capabilities, this first software version demonstrates the simulation of basic Telemax robot functionalities for training in a realistic operating environment e.g. train stations, airports or aircraft. Numerous advantages can be drawn from the new-generation software. Above all, users will be able to provide superior training at a lower cost. Indeed, the simulation software results in fewer training robots and reduces the damage sustained during training, offering a free choice of environmental influences and times of day, changeable scenarios and a high learning effect through repetition of scenarios. In addition, the simulation software eliminates inherent risks and obstacles in real-life training sessions with realistic Improvised Explosive Device Disposal (IEDD) without any risk of harm, and permits preparation in assignment locations where real training exercises cannot be carried out.
Cassidian will introduce the new Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Component Catalogue & Circuit Constructor
- Cassidian will also introduce its updated training simulation software for the heavyweight EOD robot tEODor. Thanks to the modifications made, the unique Telerob-certified new tEODor 2.0 software is even more reliable than the first version released in 2006. Cassidian designed tEODor 2.0 with technologies similar to those used in the Eurofighter ASTA simulator (Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids), for example. This re-designed tEODor 2.0 and the new Telemax simulation enables Cassidian to provide the best training solution for specialised EOD troops around the world. IED Component Catalogue and Circuit Constructor (I4C)
- Cassidian will also introduce the new Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Component Catalogue & Circuit Constructor, which significantly enhances IED Disposal by the use of X-ray images. The software consists of a database filled with hundreds of X-rayed and photographed electronic components. I4C helps to identify specific components of an IED by comparing the generated x-ray image of a suspicious object with the component catalogue. In addition the user can learn more about the IED's functionality by using the Circuit Creator. This novel feature allows the user to create an electric circuit on a virtual whiteboard.
At Cassidian, HEAT supports highly specialised personnel in the fields of Ammunition, EOD, IEDD, Special Operations and Public Security with a wide portfolio of Holistic Explosives & Ammunition Training solutions including training conception, live training, interactive Media & Simulation training, and training centres.
