Australian Federal Police Hydra Suite was installed this week. Steve flew out with UK AV technicians to work alongside Australian contractors. The new suite running Hydra in the Cloud technology was installed in the AFP training centre. With internet connectivity the new suite is operating with its own secure server and access to the web based Hydra server. This will enable them to run secure and sensitive training scenarios and have access to the Hydra Community. With three other suites now operating in Australia (Perth, Melbourne and Sydney) AFP will be able to operate scenarios both inter-state and meet its needs for international delivery.
