Defence agencies are responsible for maintaining security throughout the world. With current budgetary cuts these agencies are under increasing pressure to increase and improve services involving prevention and emergency response while reducing costs and, in some areas, with reduced resources.
As technology and requirements have evolved Blom has also developed their products and solutions to meet the new needs of the defence and security agencies. Blom has been assisting their defence and security clients to use the Blom geospatial data and solutions in their planning and operational tasks. By using up-to-date aerial imagery the clients can complete desktop surveys without needing to deploy teams on the ground. With the introduction of 3D models and LiDAR data client’s can now develop real life visualisations to aid emergency planning so that, in the event of a disaster, the appropriate agencies are fully briefed and familiar with the geographical terrain.
