3D models of vital buildings to help in anti-terror operations
Hyderabad: Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National
Police Academy (SVP-NPA) here is preparing 3D
(three-dimensional) models of all important buildings in the
country, for the purpose of anti-terrorism operations.
Using these 3D models, it is also giving specialised
training to officers and commandos for a counter-attack, in a
scenario where any of these buildings come under siege.
"The idea is that if you know about the interiors of any
location (building) which is under threat, the officers can be
given a 3D briefing before launching the counter-attack. We
have learned from the 26\11 Taj Hotel attack and tried to put
in a system of briefing officers and commandos in a 3D format
before getting into action," SVP-NPA Director Rajiv Mathur
The SVP-NPA would build a digital library with the 3D
images as well as photographs and maps of important
installations, including its own campus at Shivrampally here,
the Director told journalists.
"We are trying to create a 3D atmosphere and put the
officers through simulation tests as part of the tactical
training. While we have acquired some latest weapons, we are
also acquiring a series of other weapons for providing
comprehensive training under the `Special Tactics Wing`. So
far, training in special weapons has been imparted to 709
police officers besides 200 personnel from BSF and CRPF,"
An additional 400 acres of land was being acquired at
Ibrahimpatnam on the outskirts of Hyderabad for imparting
"aggressive and defencive" training in special tactics, he
