TARANIS: Technologies for the Appraisal of Risks through Animation and Simulation
The TARANIS 2-year ANR project (program “Concepts, systèmes et outils pour la sécurité globale”) stated in 2006, supported by MASA, ESRI-France and INRIA. It aims at creating a new training system for crisis managers, based on innovative simulation tools, allowing trainers to easily recreate complex crisis situations. Simulation tools give the trainer unprecedented control over the training session while making the virtual crisis reactive to the trainees actions and providing an unlimited variety of extreme crisis situations, a challenge that even very expensive ground exercises cannot meet. TARANIS is a “Global Security” project conducted by the company “Mathématique Appliquée S.A.” to design crisis simulation environment.
