Inefficient replay solutions and limited access to data may reduce your investigators’ efficiency.
This article is part 3 of the 6-section Technical Whitepaper: Crucial elements to consider when choosing your ATC recording solution
Investigating and reconstructing an accident or incident requires detailed data, smart tools, and a high level of precision. Yet, many investigators feel limited by their recording and replay systems.
Common complaints are poor user-friendliness, lack of important features, and inefficient replay solutions, making it difficult and time-consuming for investigators to reconstruct what the operator actually experienced.
Main challenges faced by investigators
The main challenges that may prevent investigators from attaining a full overview are:
- Insufficient investigation tools
- Limited sources recorded, e.g. missing screen recording and radar feeds
- No centralized solution providing access to data across all units and sites
While recording and replay functionality has become an industry standard for ATC systems, some system suppliers still struggle to deliver high-quality solutions for synchronism between sources.
Additionally, some systems only record certain sources, forcing investigators to search through several separate systems to collect important information from screen recordings, radar feeds, and audio sources.
Give your investigators the necessary tools
To ensure that your investigators have the necessary tools at hand when investigating and reconstructing an incident, you should verify that your recording and replay solution is capable of recording all required sources. Precise synchronism between multiple sources is also vital.
Additionally, your solution should support nationwide deployment, providing your investigators with access to remote sites from one central location. Investigation tools should be intuitive, user-friendly, and efficient, offering enhanced radar analytics and high-quality visualizations. Advanced features, such as transcription, OCR, radar replay, and scenario mode, have become necessities for efficient investigation
Finally, you should ensure that all data sources can be recorded and replayed in one, single system, eliminating the need for manual synchronism and improving the precision of your investigations.
guardREC® ATC helps improve investigation efforts by offering recording of raw radar feeds (Through-The-Wall).
The system receives and records data comparable to that of live ATM solutions, giving investigators access to complete data sets and the ability to see outside the box – rather than being limited to what the operator saw on-screen. This provides investigators with a more complete picture of the situation and helps clarify situations that may have otherwise gone unsolved.
