Bluescape Debuts Situational Awareness Reference Architecture 

Bluescape today announced a new reference architecture for situational awareness to help organizations plan effectively in managing disruptive or emergency situations. The situational awareness solution aggregates real-time, visual assets into a single digital workspace that can be shared with internal and external resources, so teams can quickly collaborate on a strategy and mount a response.

Every organization faces a range of daily threats, from severe weather to security breaches and cyber attacks. Moreover, each incident typically requires input from multiple teams distributed across organizations and agencies—a challenge that makes it harder to achieve a timely response and resolution.

To help organizations address these situational awareness challenges, Bluescape has developed a referential architecture for crisis management with Esri and other partners experienced in delivering mission-critical solutions. Esri is the pioneer behind ArcGIS, the leading mapping and analytics software that enables distributed teams to explore data and share location-based insights.

Bluescape is also expanding its universe of supported devices to include interactive, 4K displays from Dell, Optika Display, Avocor and Newline Interactive, as well as Microsoft Surface Hub. Unlike other visual collaboration solutions, Bluescape is accessible anywhere, from mobile devices and computers to large-format, interactive displays.

Here are the details.
