Simulscan 4 is a web application, based on webkit. It's a training environment for users who need to have a course but it's also an environment for who has to train his clients or employees.
SECURITY X-RAY MACHINE AVIATION TRAINING
The training on Simulscan platform meets all the requirements of usability of the applications, as well as the standards set out in EU Regolation 185/2010, Chapter 11, letter b), third paragraph.
Main features of the training:
RANDOMIZATION OF THE PRESENTATION OF LUGGAGES
Based on a system of randomization of the presentation of luggages and containers, the system ensures that the screeners who train at the same time and place not to interfere eachother in the process of analysis and decision making.
Simulscan is based on a procedural approach to the recognition and interpretation of the images of luggages. The screener can rotate the baggage of 90°, separate the contents of the baggage from its container if he believes to inspect electrical equipment, can do a manual check of the context presented, and eventually can operate the ETD procedure (Explosives Trace Detectors) in case of suspected presence of explosives or dangerous goods.
PASS, ALARM, HOLDThe analysis of the luggages by the screener ends with the duty of choosing between 3 decisions:
PASS: if the baggage doesn't contain threats, the screener may choose to pass it and proceed with the next simulation.
ALARM: if the screener identifies a threat, can call the intervention of the security personnel, so can simulate the request with the Alarm button.
HOLD: if the screener detects a threat can simulate to retain the luggage to make the necessary investigations.
SCORES AND TRACKING
The procedural operations and screening decisions in Simulscan are all tracked and stored. A complex system of attribution of scores allows the trainer to monitor all the operations performed by the user, timing and difficulty level (accesses, residence time) and the quality of his performance (procedures, decisions).
For the assignment of scores to procedures and decisions, the model provides 3 levels of difficulty and the association with threats including 8 categories. In the free training sessions the trainer can create events that filter contexts only between certain threats, in order to generate the customize training paths on the weaknesses of the user.
In addition, the images database of acquisitions of luggages is steadily fed by new high-quality images, it provides a wide variety of contexts and sessions range, offering a quantitative and qualitative effectiveness of training programs.
So the screeners have a realistic environment in which they can improve their ability to identify and understand context real situation. Simulscan uses a library of RX images specially prepared and based on real-life contexts (luggage, parcels, personal effects, etc.) in which our professionals may have been hidden prohibited items.
All images are therefore real, not generated by an image mounting algorithm like TIP, with the purpose of simulating the operational reality with the same standards used in the covert testing.
The library is based on the work carried out by the screeners (passengers area or cargo area) and based on the real training needs, the selection of the images can be modulated on the level of difficulty of interpretation contexts.
The library is continuously updated by contexts that can contain prohibited items in different perspectives, angles and methods of concealment.
The images available are generated by an equipment Gilardoni FEP ME 640 and ME 640 AMX Gilardoni (dual-view).
MOBILE TRAININGSimulscan 4 is now available for tablets!
We have worked in recent years with the aim of giving the trainer powerful tools and providing a growing quality service to the screener. Today Simulscan 4 is out of step with the times being able to offer the individual who wants to gain even the potential of mobile. In fact now users can follow their training through the official free app for Android and iPad, (soon on AppStore and Google Play).
FULL MANAGEMENT TRAINING
The Simulscan 4 platform allows the trainer to fully manage the training program of an entity or a training company, but it's also really suitable for professionals, due to its flexibility in the management of the training courses.
PERSONAL AND TIMING OF SESSIONSThe administrator of the backend can manage all the data of its customers or employees and can create events-course based on its own schedule of online courses, can access to the historical archive of the courses, can monitor billing and contracts in place.
The manager of the course - training or examination - is able to create different sessions based on two very important variables for the comprehensive training of the user: the level of difficulty and the type of threat.
LEVELS OF DIFFICULTY
The instructor, when creating an event-course, can choose contexts bag images from 3 levels of difficulty.
Contexts that can be solved without applying actions or procedures, the final decision is objectively direct and simple.
Contexts whose correct resolution requires the application of at least one specific procedure, the final decision can not be direct.
Complex contexts (overlapping, radiopaque areas, objects difficult to understand, etc.) that need to be solved by the application of multiple procedures.
REPORT AND REVIEW
Simulscan offers the trainer a powerful and detailed monitoring tool not only for the single performance, but also the progress of the user over time.
The module keeps track of some very important aspects for learning effectiveness: the ability to interpret contexts and to recognize the potential threats, the time taken to complete all procedures and necessary decisions and the skill in relation to the difficulty in recognizing the individual context.
The aggregated data can then help the revealing of the weaknesses of the screener, for example by analyzing the time required to make decisions or difficulty encountered in contexts with the same threats, etc.
Thanks to the advanced tracking system of the user experience, the datacenter of Simulscan.com will always be available at any time with all the reporting tools required in the international regulations, so it's easy to collect the documentation of attendance at courses for requesting the professional certificate.
CERTIFICATES OF ATTENDANCESimulscan also offers the trainer the ability to search any data on the screener in the past, to control the cycles of continuous training 6H/6m frequency and export the report in PDF format, ready to be signed and used as the official certificate.
Simulscan 4 is able to generate specific reports that may be required for both single and multiple training.
Report for the Technical DirectorThe Technical Director, or his delegate, may view and print the following tables:
- Overall Performance (average of the scores and the total time) for single user and for the whole of the screeners on a monthly, semi-annual and triennial period
- Possibility of verification of who carried out the tests monthly, who started them and those that have to connect for the first time
- Analysis of individual performance specifications, monthly, semi-annual and triennial to analyze the operational capabilities of each screener employed
Report for the InstructorThe instructor or trainer can view and print the following tables:
- Overall assessment of each user and analytics of the whole class to check the progress and individual training gaps
- Verification of the monthly performance, half and three-year for the issue of certificates of training, bearing the average of the scores obtained and the total playing time
- Performance analysis for individual customized training interventions on learners
Report for the Competent AuthorityThe Competent Authority (or other interested entities) may view and print the following tables:
- Semi-annual report and three years with an indication of the mean scores (interpretation of images and overall evaluation) of the total playing time and the name of the certified instructo
