Flagship planning and modelling softwares ICS Telecom and HTZ Warfare, along with ICS LT and ICS designer, have been comprehensively revamped to better meet customer needs and a changing world.
“No part of our business ever stands still,” comments managing director Peter Paul. “Clearly, technology is constantly on the move, the military sector is in a state of flux and, as buildings in cities get ever taller, the built environment provides yet more challenges. Even geology can’t be relied on; our work in Iceland has shown that an erupting volcano and an ash cloud can provide our customers with problems we need to fix.”
The new releases of ICS and HTZ Warfare have been shaped by customer feedback and by the experience of engineers in the field. “These systems have been in constant development for two decades,” Peter comments, “but this latest release represents a step change in functionality, flexibility and user-friendliness.”
Key elements of that are:
*Improved cartography with a zoom feature, automatic clutter builder, a facility for DEM/DTM modification, support for Natura 2000, a dynamic display and WMS online services enabling access to search address engine and station address update.
*Enhanced database now featuring the ability to import/export stations and microwave links to ICS Cloud (STATIONX64 and MWX64 tables) and to export vector coverage to ICS cloud. There is also an improved XML import/export function and OVED Database.
*The re-shaped ICS cloud service gives customers the ability to hire additional licences for shorter periods, and ICS online provides end users with the facility to share planning tool outputs with their customers.
“All this has been shaped by our customers for our customers,” Peter says. “It’s not just ATDI’s best ever; it’s the best there is.”
