Optimized rescue data provided for £500m rescue helicopter bid
After the signing of a €500 million contract for the new generation of Sikorsky S92A Search & Rescue helicopters for the Irish Coast Guard, today it was revealed that an Irish entrepreneurial venture, Decisions For Heroes, played an important role in the bid by supporting CHC's requirements for mission based analytics software. CHC, the largest commercial helicopter company in the world and winners of the contract used the Irish software system to analyse SAR missions, capturing key patterns and trends.
Managing Director of CHC Ireland, Mark Kelly says, "The Decisions For Heroes software allowed my team to analysis rescue mission data very quickly, easily and in great detail. The software was amazingly flexible, D4H are to be commended".
Each CHC aircraft carries paramedics who provide life-saving interventions on their casualties. Director of Decisions For Heroes, Robin Blandford explains how their software works, "CHC were able to automatically analyse SAR mission data to determine the most common injuries treated and medical techniques used".
CHC is known for quickly adopting the new technologies that makes them a leader in their field. While analysis of rescue missions cuts costs and save lives - it is their pilots and crews that routinely demonstrate skill, courage and dedication in undertaking missions in the most testing of conditions.
