Through an intuitive user interface, the ORION ARIES CAD solution is a map-centric application by Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, delivering incident data directly to the desktop. Call takers can track every resource, view premise history, access supplemental information (e.g., unit recommendations, SOPs, HAZMAT instructions). Information is provided on demand, operator performance is instantly enhanced and response capabilities are dramatically improved. The ORION ARIES solution offers such standard features as duplicate call detection, multiple incident display and browser-based reporting. Its modern, multi-tier architecture accommodates integration with third-party software, including ESRI-based shape files. The ORION ARIES solution can be deployed with existing VESTA systems, further reducing support costs and eliminating the need for additional equipment.
