Activu® Corporation, a leading provider of IP-based visualization and collaboration solutions for mission-critical command and control center environments, is pleased to announce that its visualization and collaboration software has been deployed by the U.S. Department of State – Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, Bureau’s Nuclear Risk Reduction Center (NRRC).

The NRRC was established in 1988 at the height of the Cold War and continues to play a vital and expanded role in making the world a safer place. It currently deals with approximately fifteen different nuclear, chemical, and conventional arms control treaties and security-building agreements. To support its mandate, the NRRC operates a round-the-clock NRRC Watch Center that exchanges information with the government of Russia under the New START Treaty and with 50 member nations of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague. In addition, the NRRC collaborates with various U.S. government, military, and intelligence agencies.

In order to efficiently address the high volume of multi-agency communications, provide high visibility on mission-critical functions, support watch officers, and display performance and operational statistics, the NRRC and its technology partner, Worldwide Information Network Systems (WINS), selected Activu’s visualization and collaboration solution.

“Collaboration during the processing of multi-lingual communiqués is critical to NRRC’s success. The Activu system significantly aids the ability of Watch Officers to successfully resolve multi-agency issues in a timely manner,” said Dan Sehnal, Program Manager at WINS.

“Activu’s increasing adoption by defense and government agencies significantly motivates us to develop our platform so it can improve decision-making, prevent a rush to war, and hopefully make the world a safer place. This installation validates our platform as state-of-the-art for mission-critical deployments. We also value our partnership with WINS in integrating our platform with NRRC systems.” said Activu CEO, Paul Noble.
