Tigertail Australia at AFAC17, Darling Harbour

From Monday September 4 to Thursday September 7 the new, state of the art International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour plays host to more than 2,500 Emergency management personnel and industry leaders from across the country, including Tigertail Australia.

AFAC 17 is designed to maximise collaboration, access, and networking opportunities, with a focus on working together to improve emergency management. If you’re coming down, drop by our stand number 459 and say hello to the Tigertail team.

We’ll be showcasing our virtual reality XVR program, so you can see first hand what it can do.

XVR Simulation is a leading European supplier of emergency simulation training and software. XVR is a modular virtual reality training platform that allows teams to run multi agency scenarios to train and prepare for emergency situations.

Tigertail Australia's Managing Director, Mr Rick Stone said, “If you’ve never tried virtual reality, then this is a great way to experience it for the first time.” Tigertail is showcasing the Virtual Reality program’s capabilities including three modules: the On Scene, Resource Management, and Crisis Media.

The On Scene module provides an immersive incident scenario in 3D, enabling the user to experience the simulated reality, making decisions in a scenario that is played out in real time.

The Resource Management module provides training and exercise scenarios for Incident Controllers, at the operational and strategic level. The emphasis is placed on high-level decision making and logistic support to major incidents.

There are many opportunities to participate in forums and discussions, watch live demonstrations from emergency services and see the latest equipment and technology on offer from exhibitors.

Mr Stone said, “This year is the biggest expo to date, and we are delighted to be part of it, and to showcase what we can do for your organisation.”
