Situational Awareness

For defense, intelligence, disaster relief, counter terrorism, and other critical uses, agencies on the front line choose Visual Fusion solutions for situational awareness.

Proven solutions for situational awareness

A common operating picture can be critical in coordinating response to an emergency or in planning against potential threats. When you need to get everyone on the same page, sharing the same understanding, Visual Fusion solutions for situational awareness are the answer. Typically housed inside Microsoft’s SharePoint collaboration software, these solutions provide premium data visualization, role-based accessibility, and unified content management for the entire team.

Agencies have used Visual Fusion solutions for purposes as diverse as coordinating multinational relief efforts in Malaysia, combating piracy off the coast of Somalia, and increasing border security in Michigan. Visual Fusion is the choice of the US Joint Forces Command, the US European Command, the Department of Homeland Security and other intelligence and emergency management agencies.

Benefits of Visual Fusion solutions for situational awareness include:


A single, secure view.

Visual Fusion solutions connect to existing, otherwise incompatible systems, to unite disparate data sets. Includes connectors for SQL, Oracle, ESRI, GeoRSS, KML, WMS, Open Data, and other sources.


Built-in security.

Ensures that users see only what they are authorized to see, whether you implement your solution on the Web or in a closed environment.


The “no training” interface.

Most users navigate Visual Fusion solutions immediately without the need for costly, time-consuming user training.


Collaboration and communication.

Share information across agencies, departments, or teams. Map tools and content management tools let everyone contribute to the shared view.


Automated alerts.

Set alerts for a feed or a geographic area. Supports the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and other standards.


Rapid implementation.

With the ready-to-go map and timeline viewers and connectors for your data, you can build a complete Visual Fusion application in days or weeks, not months. Within an application, you can build a common operating picture on the fly, using our drag-and-drop tools and feeds in standard formats.
