The following license options are available for TACCS™ software. Each license is assigned to a single machine, which may be connected to a computer network only for the purposes of data input or networking with other TACCS™ licensed computers. A description of each license option is as follows; this description does not address licenses supplied by third party data providers.
TACCS™ Multi-User Workgroup (Enterprise Server) License. This software is installed on a Linux server conforming to Priority 5 performance specifications. This license also entitles the user to one Workstation License as described below. This installation is a full-featured version of TACCS™ and its database, which, as the name indicates, supports the creation of a workgroup that allows collaboration between multiple workstations. The workstations may operate in a user defined operating picture mode, or one of the workstations may be designated as a control unit, which will then determine the imagery and simulated conditions (the “canvas”) viewed by the other workstations in the workgroup. Discounts are provided if additional TACCS™ Multi-User Workgroup Licenses are installed on an existing TACCS™ Enterprise Server and share the same database.
TACCS™ Desktop (Single-user Workgroup) License. This software is installed on a Linux server that has TACCS™ Multi-User Workgroup (Enterprise Server) License installed. This license provides the user with the ability to operate independent of other users in a workgroup to conduct simulations or other analyses.
TACCS™-ISE. This software is installed on a Linux server conforming to Priority 5 performance specifications. This license also entitles the user to one Workstation License as described below. TACCS™-ISE provides the basic capabilities required for most law enforcement applications (i.e., aggregating information from disparate sources, identifying potential threats, and coordinating operational responses. While TACCS™-ISE does not provide live state tracking of asset operational status or “what if” simulation capability, a full credit of the amount paid for the ISE license is provided should the decision to upgrade be made at a later date.
TACCS™ Workstation License. This software is installed on a Windows XP or later PC with a multi-touch display (if desired) supplied by the user and conforming to Priority 5 performance specifications. A workstation requires access to a TACCS™ or a TACCS™-ISE server. The purpose and concept of operation with the use of multiple workstations within a network is to support a focused common operating picture (COP) involving multiple office and/or field-based users.
TACCS™Mobile Extension. The TACCS™Mobile Extension License is installed on a Linux server that has TACCS™ Multi-User Workgroup (Enterprise Server) or TACCS™-ISE License installed. It extends the power of TACCS™ situational awareness to first responders in the field by allowing appropriately licensed Apple and Android tablets to access information from the Server using a secure mobile browser-based connection. TACCS™Mobile allows first responders and agents in the field to interact with the TACCS™ server. The field agents can be tracked on the canvas and have the ability to both receive information from TACCS™ and submit live reports, including images, back to the server.
TACCS™DST Extension. The TACCS™DST Extension License is installed on a Linux server that has TACCS™ Multi-User Workgroup (Enterprise Server) License installed. This too lset allows the user to optimize the application of post-event recovery crews, including the ability to coordinate public and private efforts. Using this tool, the operator can: designate the types and locations of supplies, equipment and personnel (Recovery Assets) that are or may be available to be used to restore damaged CI/KR; identify all CI/KR that are required to be restored in order for critical societal or organizational missions to be fulfilled; identify the relative priorities of restoring the damaged CI/KR so as to enable the critical societal or organizational missions to be fulfilled; and create a plan for deploying the available Recovery Assets in the most effective manner.
