Command Post Training Tool

The CRISIS project aimed to deliver both field exercise and command post exercise training. The XVR simulation tool allows us to do the former, and I was required to create the latter. It was developed during a two-week post at E-Semble, where we were able to collaborate on the interactions between XVR and the command post tool, including the sending of streaming video data and enter/exit command post events.

The tool is developed in Java, and makes use of a Swing UI, the Processing graphics library, and an ActiveMQ connection for communicating with XVR and synchronising multiple instances of the command post (in a multi-user training environment). You can see the tool in the video below.
