City of Rotterdam using VSTEP EyeObserve Simulator for detection of criminal & terrorist activities
Date posted: 03-05-2012
To train surveillance camera operators to identify strange and suspicious behavior and detect and report criminal & terrorist activities, VSTEP developed the EyeObserve Simulator in cooperation with the Rotterdam-Rijnmond Police, the National Coordinator Bureau for Counterterrorism (NCTV) and TNO Defence & Security. Dutch newspaper METRO devoted a cover article on this innovative simulator.
The EyeObserve simulator is an effective training tool to detect and interpret deviant behavior in real-time on virtual surveillance camera images. The simulator allows surveillance camera operators to identify strange and suspicious behavior and detect and report criminal & terrorist activities.
Surveillance cameras are omnipresent nowadays and have become a valuable asset for threat detection, at the same time increasing the responsibility of surveillance camera operators and the need for specific camera operator training. A surveillance camera operator must be capable of interpreting the visual information he receives and identify criminal activity and suspicious behaviour, however subtle it may be.

For training of its Sigma Class Corvette bridge personnel, the Indonesian Navy and Ministry of Defence selected VSTEP to supply two Class A NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge (FMB) Simulators for its Kobangdikal marine training facility in Surabaya.
At the Kooy Symposium 2013, Delft Dynamics, specialised in building unmanned helicopters, presented their Universal Simulation Platform for Unmanned Systems (USPvOS). Using this platform, groundstations from unmanned systems can be linked directly to RescueSim using High Level Architecture (HLA), thereby allowing virtual training of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators.
