PAR Government, a provider of geospatial and decision support solutions for 57 years, has rebranded its TeamConnect cloud-based situational awareness suite as Sit(x).
The commercial Sit(x) solution is designed for enhanced collaboration among government and civilian public safety organizations. PAR Government Systems Corporation (PGSC) is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation.
To complement the Android and Windows support already available in Sit(x), PAR has unveiled a free iOS app, giving Apple smartphone users access to the technology.
“The Sit(x) name better reflects the ability to provide effective situational awareness for any situation,” said Mark Kozak, PAR Government Vice President of Product Innovation. “This results in faster, more informed decision making at the command level and in the field.”
Sit(x) is a TAK Server-as-a-Service solution based on the Team Awareness Kit (TAK) situational awareness technology that PAR Government developed for the U.S. Defense & Intelligence Community under contract to DoD. This technology has been deployed under demanding conditions by every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces over the past decade.
PAR Government created the Sit(x) TAK Server-as-a-Service offering specifically to enable real-time communication and information sharing between non-connected public safety personnel during rapidly evolving multi-jurisdictional situations, both planned and unexpected. These include large public gatherings, such as sports events or concerts, and emergency incidents related to terror attacks or natural disasters.
The affordable and easy-to-use Sit(x) solution enables individuals and teams to communicate directly by text or symbology and share real-time full-motion video (FMV), GIS layers, imagery, GPS locations, raster maps, photos, and documents.
