SCRA Unveils Updated Alastar Software

This week, SCRA released the newest version of their security software, Alastar™. The application delivers situational awareness and provides a common operating picture for both public safety and corporate organizations.

Alastar 2.8 incorporates several updates, including:

  • Bookmark sharing: users can now create their own dynamic bookmarks and share them with other users, allowing bookmarks to be created quickly and more easily shared with others;
  • Enhanced Data View: Specific view feed lists can be saved to improve customization and user-experience;
  • Dynamic legend creation based on active layers;
  • Identify feature tool: enables users to identify features within a user-created geographic boundary;
  • Multiple watchlist feeds: allows users to create and run multiple social media filters which can be used independently GPS Tracker App is now available on both iOS and Android;
  • Filter information based on a user defined perimeter

Alastar assimilates large data sets into easily-understandable geospatial views, providing end users with clarity in complex situations, assisting in the decision-making process. The software is currently in use at the Charleston County Consolidated 9-1-1 Center, was used at the Cooper River Bridge Run and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

“In many situations, it is crucial to have wide-area situational awareness – from a routine 911 call to a large-scale event,” said SCRA Vice President Mark Aukamp. “Alastar provides the big picture and the ability to share that across multiple agencies, providing an effective and efficient response. We are pleased to release this updated version of our software, which will allow users to more easily save important searches and use mobile devices for tracking.”
