Growth in the Airbox Executive Team

Steve Thompson - CTO

Airbox has recently welcomed a new Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to its Executive Team.

Steve Thompson joins Airbox from leading games and technology company NaturalMotion. He brings extensive knowledge and experience having previously held the position of Head of Middleware in a growing global organisation.

During his 12 years at NaturalMotion, Steve was integral in developing the company from an innovative start-up to one of the UK’s largest games studios. He led a team of technically brilliant people on creating industry-leading procedural animation technology, used in movies and triple-A games titles.

Steve commented “This is an ideal time to be joining Airbox’s Executive Team as the company is expanding so rapidly. My key focus will be on growing the development team to ensure we can deliver an excellent service to our community. I am excited to be working with such innovative products, a brilliant team, and to feel like my day to day work is genuinely helping to save lives.”

William Moore, Airbox’s CEO, added “Steve’s experience is an ideal fit for Airbox. His mindset and experience are an ideal fit for our future plans. He is absolutely the right person to grow the team and take our software products into the future.

Airbox Systems to take over ResilienceDirect™ Contract

We are very proud to announce that the Civil Contingencies Secretariat within the Cabinet Office have today awarded Airbox the contract to maintain and develop the ResilienceDirect™ emergency planning and response platform.

ResilienceDirect™ is the UK’s secure web-based platform for all Category 1 and 2 responders, government departments and other key organisations in the UK resilience community. The service is free-to-use and allows users to share information during emergency responses, planning and exercises. Airbox’s portfolio of applications allows field operatives on land, sea and air to collaborate visually, sharing information through a simple, map-based interface.

The synergy between the two organisations was a key factor for the Cabinet Office when awarding the contract to Airbox. We both use dedicated software to enhance the sharing of information, allowing responders to be better informed, safer and more effective.

William Moore, CEO of Airbox Systems said: “We are excited about the possibilities brought by this new partnership with ResilienceDirect™. The team at the Cabinet Office and Ordnance Survey have created a fantastic platform used widely in the community. In the next phase we plan to engage with the end users to understand their wants and needs as we aim to increase platform usage, making it as relevant and useful to the community as we can.“

Luana Avagliano, Head of ResilienceDirect™ added “We were very impressed with Airbox’s tender submission and their dedication to our community. The synergy between our two organisations will prove paramount as we strive to take the platform forward to deliver an enhanced service. Over the coming weeks and months we will be working with our existing partners and Airbox to ensure a smooth transition of the service.”
