Fremont, California, Tuesday, May 12, 2009 – In storm season, Space-Time Insight gives utility operators the visual insight and power in the control room that other people only see in the movies.
Utility operators can click a link to see the human impact, financial liability and regulatory issues associated with each asset affected by the storm. Next, operators can link directly to workflow systems to enable rapid crew mobilization, evacuation and situation management from the same screen.
A few days ago, storms in the Midwest and Southeast killed 6 and left 213,000 people without electric power. Space-Time Insight’s solution dramatically improves utilities’ ability to respond quickly to these circumstances and also comply with Homeland Security Critical Infrastructure Protection requirements during storms, floods and other emergencies.
Space-Time Insight shows lighting strikes, the intensity and predicted direction of wind, storms, tornados, and hurricanes, SCADA and ERP data overlaid on terrain, grid lines and utilities’ geographically distributed assets. Built-in analytics enable utility operators to see the human impact, financial liability, and regulatory requirements associated with each asset in real time. From the same screen, operators can link directly to workflow systems and best-practice remedial action scripts to manage the situation, quickly mobilize the right crews, and manage evacuations.
Mark L. Feldman, PhD, CEO of Space-Time Insight, notes, "Space-Time Insight is the only software available that enables customers to see the real-time human, regulatory, and financial impact of a crisis as it’s unfolding and assign best-practice action scripts to address that crisis immediately and directly from the same screen."
Space-Time Insight already serves leading utilities across the United States. The product helps utilities and energy infrastructure providers safeguard assets, keep the lights on, and get power restored faster for customers no matter what the natural or man-made event.
