SCRA's Alastar Helps Law Enforcement Secure Bridge Run
Wide-Area Situational Awareness Software Helps Coordinate Multiple Agencies
For the second year, SCRA Applied R&D's wide-area situational awareness software, Alastar, was utilized during the Cooper River Bridge Run to ensure emergency personnel had a complete and accurate picture of activities occurring before, during and after the race.
The 38th annual 10K run brought nearly 40,000 participants from Mount Pleasant, SC to downtown Charleston, SC on March 28th. Multiple public safety agencies monitored all aspects of the event from a Unified Command Center using SCRA's Alastar software.
This year Alastar debuted a new live streaming video feature. With this new feature, officers were able to use their phones or tablets to stream video back to the command center. This live streaming video feature enhances Alastar's real-time ability to coordinate multiple jurisdictions and disciplines, and ultimately better protect lives and property.
Alastar was developed in collaboration with the 23 participating agencies in the Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch Center, as part of SCRA's continued involvement in Homeland Security efforts. Through SCRA's extensive capabilities in public safety systems architecture and software development, SCRA has delivered systems that collect, manage and securely share information in a broad range of areas, including coordination of first responders, port security, law enforcement and defense-related eCommerce.
