Israeli Air Force Selects Orsus Situator

Situator manages the workflow of routine and emergency situations while unifying multiple, disparate security systems


New York, April 4th, 2007 — Orsus, a pioneer in the field of Situation Management, a new holistic approach to optimizing situation planning, response and analysis, has received an order for the deployment of its Situator product suite in new additional bases for the Israeli Air Force.

This project marks the second order for Orsus with the Israeli Air Force, which first deployed Orsus' Situator solution at numerous bases over a year ago. Situator's open architecture enables the Israeli Air Force to manage the workflow between control room operators, field personnel and officers in both routine and emergency situations. In addition, Situator converges more than a dozen different and disparate security systems, such as sensors, video analytics, surveillance systems, alarm panels and GPS enabled vehicles, into a single view with the ability to operate these systems in a uniform manner.

"Implementing Situator from Orsus has greatly improved how the Israeli Air Force manages and monitors its ground security operations," said Gilad Chitayat, Director of Sales at Orsus, who has been involved with the Israeli Air Force project since its inception. "Thanks to Situator, the Israeli Air Force control rooms today are entirely paperless and the chances for human error have decreased due to the automated operational procedures mechanism."

In the previous installations, Situator reduced training time for control room operators by 50 percent and decreased the operational costs of activities related to guards and patrols. With Situator's advanced training, simulation and debriefing tools, the Israeli Air Force now has the ability to conduct complex drills in an efficient manner while continuously improving its level of preparedness.

"Orsus is honored that Situator has been chosen for the second time around by the Israeli Air Force," said Rafi Bhonker, VP of Marketing and Sales at Orsus. "The Israeli Air Force follows the highest technology and security standards in the world and its use of Situator is a testament of the reliability of our situation management solution."
