Modular public safety solutions for the defence sector
TECHWAN’s SAGA line of software systems comprises solutions for management of emergencies and crises, and personnel mobilisation, as well as an auxiliary tool designed to provide assistance during the planning of large-scale events.
SAGA is a powerful multi-layered, services-oriented (SOA) solution that can manage police forces, civil defence and ambulance crews via a single, modular, highly flexible user interface.
SAGA’s interfaces are customisable outside of the application using a register that allows for the creation of an unlimited amount of profiles depending on clients’ needs, which can be adapted by the system engineers.
Our SAGA systems support all types of fixed and mobile workstations, including multi-screen PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets. SAGA can take advantage of smart client technology, as well as full web multi-screen workstations.
TECHWAN’s SAGA software solutions are multi-lingual and support a range of alphabets, including Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic and Chinese. Translation can be performed inside application screens for optimum operational efficiency.
All SAGA modules can be used alone or combined to create bespoke management solutions according to customers’ requirements. Our versatile SAGA products support Windows and Linux operating systems, as well as SQL servers and PostreSQL database management systems to ensure compatibility with clients existing technology.
Emergency command and control systems for military operations
TECHWAN’s SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL software is a versatile solution that can handle a wide range of operational needs and configurations, ranging from one or two workstations, to networks of thousands of devices.
SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL can be linked with the user’s geographic interface system (GIS) of choice, including ESRI, GeoServer, OpenLayers, Bing and Google Maps, or having several on the same screen simultaneously if preferred.
The solution is compatible with a wide range of communication interfaces such as PABX / IPBX, radio TETRA, TETRAPOL, LTE, voice and video recorders, in addition to paging and SMS.
Our versatile SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL system can be installed on-premises, as well as in public or private Clouds depending on customers’ operational needs. Workstations can be configured for smart client compatibility with Microsoft WPF, as well as multi-screen, full web and mobile operation based on the AngularJS framework.
SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL was chosen by the French Gendarmerie (French police force) for integration as part of one of the world’s largest centralised command and control networks, comprising more than 6,000 workstations across French territories worldwide. The extensive network has since added more than 60,000 mobile workstations, smartphones and tablets.
Event planning technology for security measures
SAGA PLANNING is an additional module for SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL that is designed to assist in the planning of major events.
The system is able to store users’ preferred settings and configurations, which can then be re-used for future events to deliver consistently reliable results.
Every step planned in the SAGA PLANNING module is linked with SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL. SAGA PLANNING automatically triggers resources outlined in SAGA COMMAND & CONTROL at the relevant time in accordance with users’ specifications.
Our SAGA PLANNING solution is used by the City of Paris in the planning of high-profile events such as the Tour de France, Paris Marathon, and National Festival, as well as for specialist applications.
