Hosted by the Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance, this Simulation Conference will focus on improving planning, training and rehearsal of procedures central to policing, homeland security, border protection, emergency management, and disaster response.

The Simulation Conference has been convened for the CIVSEC 2018 audience of security professionals and practitioners, technologists, scientists, researchers, policy makers, officials and executives from national and state departments, agencies, commissions, services and first responders.

An exclusive presentation will be held on LIVE (reality-based) training and mission rehearsal, and a panel address on the range of simulation techniques and capabilities from decision support, LVC, games/AR/VR, and experimentation.

Simulation and modelling technical demonstrations will be held by industry and academia to showcase the latest in tactical and procedural training within the CIVSEC  2018 exhibition.

Free of charge to attend, the Simulation Conference is open to accredited registered professional visitors to CIVSEC 2018. (Places are limited and pre-registration is recommended with pre-registration now available via our website here).

TECHNICAL DEMONSTRATION - Real Response

Simulation Demonstration Area, Concourse Foyer, MCEC
Presenter: Motti Blum

Real MCI is a training platform for first responders at a Mass Casualty Incident. Real MCI provides first responders with the experience of being the first on the scene after a bus was deliberately rammed into a hotel lobby. Through the virtual experience first responders can practice triaging victims; assessing victims; and applying basic interventions and triage tags.

TECHNICAL DEMONSTRATION - Manuka Projects and Urban Circus

Simulation Demonstration Area, Concourse Foyer, MCEC
Presenters: Martin Skin and Urban Circus staff

An Urban Circus Model is built from accurate geospatial data for smart city or other planning. Urban Circus processes the spatial data to create high performance (very fast) City Models for you to experience from the human scale. We believe that civil security agencies would operationally benefit from these models.
