THE BEST COMMAND AND CONTROL CENTRE
It is not about the technology, it is how you present, analyze and utilize information.
What determines a good command and control centre? How it is formed and what is its purpose? Should it be an area of integrated intelligence or is it just for information sharing?
Today’s communications landscape has changed significantly. Immediate messaging and alerts are prevalent and expected with the advent of smartphone technology. Increasing availability and adoption of IoT devices offering real time monitoring and asset tracking capability are reaching affordability at mass scales. With these advances, command centre need to be adaptive, flexible, reliable, secure, and able to handle multiple sources of information inputs (videos, statistics, analytics, etc.) but most importantly, a centre that can offer efficient real time decision making and communication.
Types and Configurations
Communication is key for any command and control centre. As its name suggested, a command centre exists for the main purpose of control by gaining, maintaining situational awareness and coordinating resources and responses to effectively addresses the orgnizational and operational needs. Understanding the different types of command centres and configure them to fit the needs is essential and crucial for the success of any command centre deployment – one size does not fit all situations, customization is a must.
