An exact situation picture and an unrestricted flow of information are indispensable in the event of a crisis or disaster. While the availability of data offers great potential for more holistic analysis, the key challenge is the integration and interpretation of data. Traditional IT-based applications only facilitate integration of different datasets to a limited extent.

CGI Sense360 offers a high-performance, intelligent and secure platform that meets these criteria. It delivers all the information needed for time-critical coordination and relief operations in near real-time. The solution creates a holistic, up-to-date picture of situational awareness using data from a variety of sources such as satellites, drones, maps, infrastructure, weather, and environmental data, as well as online databases, blogs and social media.

It also combines predictive analytics, AI and AR for data analysis and integration to provide an enriched informational service that enables faster and safer crisis management measures. These predictive analytics provide a view into what threats may arise or how a current situation could develop.
