Press Release - November 30, 2007


Weston Digital Technologies today announced its X-Stream software which enables system integrators in the tactical environment to create replay sessions formed from different sources of information, including audio, screen recording, and radar data.

X-Stream has been developed in partnership with one of the world's largest and most respected defence companies and leverages the advanced capabilities of Weston Digital's Symphony family of products.

"Air Defence organisations have long recorded every flight and every mission and hence have at their disposal a vast quantity of ground-to-air communications, radar data, CCTV and on-line screen activity. Until now however it has not been possible to synchronise this information and recreate real-life scenarios. X-Stream is at last making this possible," said Derek Townsend, Technical Director. 

X-Stream's capabilities are enabling organisations to reconstruct highly accurate scenarios for mission debriefing, accident investigation, and training. Derek continued: "It's the training angle that has most excited the Air Defence sector. For the first time these organisations can now construct detailed real-life examples which can be used in a classroom environment. X-Stream also enables these sessions to be manipulated so that trainers can tailor the information to suit their training needs."

X-Stream is also thoroughly flexible - it's possible to have several replay sessions active at the same time which means that it can be used simultaneously for both operational and training purposes without resource conflicts. It can also be used to perform selective extractions for use with a Portable Replay Facility. This means that debriefing can now be achieved rapidly in the conflict arena, providing vital information for senior personnel and air crews trying to understand how their mission fitted into the bigger tactical picture.
