Assets may be exposed to vehicle attacks or incursions via acts of terrorism, crime (ram-raiding attacks) or accidental acts such as driver loss of control. To assess risk exposure for property insurance underwriting and planning of mitigation measures, Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) assessments are performed to assess the possible paths, directions, angles and speed that a vehicle may take when approaching a particular area or space.
Automated Hostile Vehicle Vector Analysis (AHVVA) is a patent-pending technology that uses geospatial data to rapidly model the potential consequences of vehicle threats for any location in the world. This seminar will cover how AHVVA works, and its real-world applications in context of rapid vector analysis for public places, events and mass gatherings.

The Terrorism Risk Assessment, Modelling and Mitigation Seminar Series (TRAMMSS) is a virtual seminar series focused on technical topics related to terrorism risk assessment, and modelling, including blast modelling and response; IEDs; vehicles as weapons; CBRN; big data for risk assessment, security and screening; and associated mitigation measures.
