The Sensor connectivity management software market offers users a wide choice, and, depending on the customer’s sensor platform requirement, a sole sensor manufacturer is unlikely to have a solution to match the entire sensor suite. As such, users may find the integration process a challenge, with different companies providing their own proprietary software for each sensor instrument.
Bruhn NewTech has the capacity to work alongside sensor manufacturers, integrating their sensor data into our software products and thus allowing sensor information to be seamlessly presented on a single display window. We can also advise users about specific sensors and instruments to meet their requirements.
Sensor Connectivity Management Softward®
The Sensor Connectivity Management Software® (SCIM) application is a single aggravated display of all sensors and instruments that are connected to a MCU or junction box on any given platform. In essence it is the ‘glue’ that binds all data together from multiple devices into a single, easy-to-display window. This creates a less complicated human machine interface (HMI) for the operator to control.
Training and using sensors or instruments can increase the cost of consumables such as batteries and filters. Simulation can keep these costs to a minimum while giving operators valuable training in the necessary procedures. CBRN Sim is a software product that delivers the full realism of sensor data, including errors and malfunctions, and gives instructors essential feedback on practical performance.
Future Developments Connectivity
With projects increasingly requiring the ability to integrate sensors and instruments into various platforms, we update our sensor data integration library on a rolling basis. We currently have more than 50 sensors and instruments integrated into our SCIM® product. These are not only CBRN sensors, but also include weather, explosives, camera and GPS instruments.
We firmly believe that demands for integration of our software with external hardware components as well as external software suites will continue. We will keep on developing interfaces and architecture to seamlessly integrate to all relevant sensor types as well as C2, C4i and BMS software systems.
Bruhn NewTech is a software development company whose prime aim is to provide CBRN incident management applications. However, over time and in response to user demand, we have sought to make better use of the monitoring and warning capabilities that sensors can provide. To this end, we have expanded our product portfolio to include the sensor connectivity management hardware needed to connect multiple sensors or instruments in keeping with the user platform.
HazKey® is a combination of hardware and software that delivers a turnkey solution for sensor integration, data fusion and mobile communications, with associated software providing increased levels of situational awareness.
The monitoring control unit (MCU) is one component within the default configuration setup of the HazKey® system. The MCU can be detached from the HazKey® system and used separately on a variety of platforms for multiple solutions, including CBRNe sensor monitoring and data management.
The MCU has been designed, built and tested to DEFSTAN 00-35, DEFSTAN 59-411 and MILSTD-810G.
We strive to find innovative solutions to problems our customers may face when dealing with any potential CBRN threat.
Customers and partners are always welcome to contact us to get insight to our dynamic roadmap of upcoming enhancements to current products and future developments in pipe-line.
Bruhn NewTech offers a specialised range of CBRNe life-saving solutions fro defence and first response operations. The core elements are CBRNe information management software applications that can be used independently to predict hazards, provide warnings and report information, and can incorporate enhanced sensor and instrument integration as well as additonal CBRN intelligence funtions.
Bruhn NewTech continually strive to push the boundaries of their software to ensure that applications are available to personnel and platforms on the ground at the source of the incident, all the way to command facilities, using integrated command and control communication systems where situational awareness is critical.
CBRN Analysis is the global market leader in the digital application of CBRN information management software that meets the latest warning and reporting standards. The software also supports intelligence preparation of the operational environment (IPOE), which allows users to place known potential hazards within their operational areas.
CBRNE Frontline's key aim is to be the preferred software application for non-warning and reporting specialists. It allows the user to focus on the incident in progress by manually entering information or extracting data from sensors or instruments.
With our ongoing R&D, we continually seek to bridge the gaps that users find or that we identify within any hazard prediction or Warning and Reporting chain. Timing can be critical for anyone dealing with a CBRNe incident. Lives may be at risk if personnel do not have the information at hand required to accurately analyse critical situations and make swift decisions. Ensuring that information is easily accessible and easy to input is one of our key drivers.
