Online PR News – 04-May-2016 – West Palm Beach, FL – Local boutique security technology firm Disaster Solutions LLC is in follow up meetings in Paris after a presentation last week at the Headquarters of European Unionâ€™s border security agency FRONTEX (FrontiĂ¨res ExtĂ©rieures) in Warsaw, Poland. FRONTEX retains responsibility for coordinating the refugee crisis in Europe and is evaluating Disaster Solutionâ€™s flagship product Virtual BadgeÂ®. Disaster Solutions is among a select group of 12 companies from 9 different countries invited to attend this special session with focus on technology and material solutions to assist in the crisis.
FRONTEX and 28 European Union member-state, border guard authorities and law enforcement officials are assessing a variety of turnkey proposals to assist in coordinating the complex response operations required to address the crisis.
Scott Lewis, the inventor of the software and a native of West Palm Beach stated, â€śDisaster Solutions was selected based on its long history of successful disaster response operations, as well as our mobile software, Virtual BadgeÂ®. We are honored to present to FRONTEX and possibly assist in the largest refugee crisis in modern historyâ€ť
Virtual BadgeÂ® has been used since 2008, and can accommodate the complex, multi-lingual response forces in all 28 EU countries facing this challenge. When combined with biometric-matching capabilities - like fingerprint and facial recognition software functions - Virtual BadgeÂ® can be used to track refugee asylum request statuses, report border security updates, quick check watch-listed persons, and help create databases of migrant identities.
With a history of disaster response experience since 1999 - including deployments to more than 25 hurricanes, the Haiti Earthquake, the Fukushima Earthquake and Tsunami, and the BP Oil Spill, Disaster Solutions has proven the capability of its processes and smartphone-based software to provide situational awareness and identity management for field operations. Virtual BadgeÂ® functions both in real-time and in areas where there is no cell and no internet connectivity, enabling use in the most remote and inhospitable areas. The software has worked for a wide variety of assessments including on response boats, from helicopters or airplanes, and in extremely remote areas. Robust back end analytics are scalable and have handled millions of data points on complex mapping systems.
