VizExperts, a technology start up focusing on the visual computing field has been facilitated by the Border Security Force for developing and deploying the Digital Sand Model System.
The start-up was recognised for its services to the BSF during the farewell ceremony organised for DK Pathak, Deputy General, BSF at Shaheed RK Wadhwa Parade ground.
The Digital Sand Model (DSM) developed by VizExperts has used visual computing to enhance border security, added the start-up. The model is a novel solution that meets the challenges thrown by the stringent security demands, especially that at the border.
The system helps in operation planning, mission briefing and training for all the security forces including the Indian paramilitary, police and the armed forces.
We consider it an honor, to be of assistance to our country’s defence mechanism and keeping our work in line with our Prime Minister’s Make in India programme. It gives us immense pride and a sense of real purpose in what we do. We sincerely thank everyone at BSF, particularly DG BSF Shri Pathak, for giving us this opportunity to serve our nation.
stated Praveen Bhaniramka, founder and CEO of VizExperts.
The system relies on GeorbIS 3D GIS platform to take information from any given terrain and is equipped with audio visual hardware. The GIS platform based system which is recognised by OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) also has backend GIS database support clarified VizExperts.
BSF has utilised the Digital Sand Model technology to get information related to a terrain. The technology has allowed the forces to get a first hand feed of the situation on a terrain due to its 3D visualization technology.
For the BSF, VizExperts was instrumental in developing technology that “mapped and modelled the complete 3D geospatial database of all the border assets of BSF along the eastern and western theatres, including BP, BOP, Border Fence, BFL and other mobile assets,” stated the company.
VizExperts has also developed a 3D visual analytics toolkit that aids in operation planning. The tool relies on satellite imagery to create a map of an event for visualisation and to recreate a scenario.
BSF officials congratulated VizExperts for their efforts and contribution. Further they stated that the Digital Sand Model technology along with the OPS Information System deployed at BSF Integrated OPS room by VizExperts, would be very useful for BSF and other forces, for better situational awareness, operation planning and informed decision making.
VizExperts currently boasts of defence research organisations, space research centres, paramilitary organizations, museums and educational institutes as its clients in India. Internationally, Halliburton, SGI and AMD have utilised VizExperts’ array of visual computing technologies.
