BATON ROUGE – The Highway Safety Research Group, or HSRG, at the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business has been named the 2012 Innovative Customer of the Year by A-T Solutions, a global industry-leading anti- and counter-terrorism firm.


The HSRG assisted A-T Solutions in creating the LaTRCM application, which is available through iTunes and is based off A-T Solutions’ iDLS Platform. The LaTRCM application is designed to replace static hardcopy training materials with more interactive digital content distributed to users via tablet computers. The application is also intended to provide many benefits over printed materials, including standardized content management, reduced weight, increased portability and a significant enhancement in information currency and relevancy.


In conjunction with the LaTRCM application, an interactive crash report help page is available via the HSRG website. The HSRG currently integrates A-T Solutions’ easy-to-use crash scene diagramming program, Easy Street DrawTM, into its statewide crash reporting program called LaCrash.


“The HSRG has continually partnered with A-T Solutions to deploy innovative and cutting edge technology solutions to assist Louisiana Law Enforcement Officers in their daily duties,” Aaron Baumert of A-T Solutions stated. “[The HSRG’s] latest effort to help improve the quality of crash reporting data via an updated training application is a testament to its dedication.”


A-T Solutions Inc. is one of the industry’s leading and fastest-growing counterterrorism firms, providing a full spectrum of training, technology, intelligence and mission solutions that protect people, infrastructure and nations from terrorist threats. A-T Solutions has unique expertise in training to support warfighters, state and local first responders, and law enforcement professionals in detecting and defeating improvised explosive devices. The company supports more than 200 customers in more than 40 countries, including the departments of Defense, State and Justice; the Department of Homeland Security; the intelligence community; allied nations; and the private sector.


The Highway Safety Research Group at LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business is revolutionizing the way traffic accidents are reported in Louisiana through recently developed software. Called the LACRASH system, this software allows police officers to fill out and submit their crash reports electronically, directly from their squad cars.
