What's New in Avalanche TTX 6

Avalanche TTX 6 has major enhancements throughout the system, including the scenario player, scenario library and the scenario builder.

Scenario Player

Communication between teams

Observe the flow of information during critical incidents and identify potential areas for improvement relating to communication, information sharing and situational awareness.

Participant groups can send messages to:

  • Share information during a simulated incident.
  • Enable realistic lines of communication.
  • Request additional details from the exercise team.

Facilitator Messaging

Exercise facilitators can now communicate with participants in different rooms or different cities around the world.

  • Respond to participant requests for additional information.
  • Inject unplanned situation updates and story elements on-the-fly.
  • Coordinate participants remotely (e.g. "Please return to the auditorium")
  • Provide hints, instructions or observations to teams during their activities (e.g. "Have you notified everyone of the incident?")

Form injects

A new, more intuitive way for participants to respond to questions and complete written tasks during an exercise.
  • Structured questions allowing for clearer evaluation and reporting.
  • Get responses relevant to each stage of the scenario.
  • Facilitators can review submissions during a scenario and include them in automatically generated exercise reports in a few clicks.
  • Optionally use inputs from your standard procedures templates.

New inject visuals

The scenario player has a fresh new look for the presentation theme and inject animations.
  • Bright, crisp and clear on high definition displays.
  • Injects are represented on the latest phone handsets and radio equipment.
  • No changes required to your existing scenarios – everything automatically looks better.

Scenario Designer

Rehearsal improvements

You can now preview your scenario without leaving the scenario designer, from any point in the exercise timeline. See which injects will be received by each site or breakout room, all on a single screen.

Scenario design search

Easily find injects and other scenario content based on keywords for fast updates during scenario development:
  • Quickly make terminology changes to an existing scenario.
  • Update a duplicated scenario to focus on a different location, audience or incident type.

Scenario design to-do list

Keep track of required updates during the scenario design process. Whether you’re creating a new scenario or changing an existing scenario to suit a different target audience, you can now easily keep track of changes you want to make to your scenario without having to make the changes on the spot.
  • Add a "To-Do" item now, and return to make the change later with a single click.
  • See your unfinished tasks in a simple list, along with scenario design warnings.
  • Review your scenario plan rapidly with Subject Matter Experts or management.

Scenario management features

Work better with your team when authoring scenarios.
  • Improved revision tracking for scenarios.
  • Scenario codes and revisions are now unique, allowing sharing of scenarios between systems.
  • Scenarios now track the history and source of each revision.
  • Saving scenarios, importing scenarios and generating scenario documents now happens in the background so you can keep working.
  • You can now import and export multiple scenarios at the same time.
