The aggressiveness of activists and terrorists, as well as easy availability of smaller, more portable and more effective means of attack, makes VIP protection increasingly difficult.
A team leader preparing a security plan on a paper map, does not suffice anymore. In close cooperation with stakeholders from the National Police, TNO developed a collaborative multi-touch software application. By using the application, the whole team assigned to protect a VIP, can jointly plan the best course of action using a digital map. It also allows dynamic evaluations of interventions, evaluations of locations in 3D, simulation of the line of sight or the effects of explosions, and it can track people in real-time. The applicationsupports distributed teams to work together and share their plans and status. And, best of all, it's intuitive and fun to use.
