When a wide-area common operating picture is needed during normal switching operations, an outage or a crisis, the Monitor system quickly displays everything on the system that has been impacted by the event.  This ‘big picture’ view not only enhances situational awareness but also increases the quality and speed of decision making by the system operator. 


In a typical operating environment, the system operator develops and retains a cognitive map of the system they are operating.  The Monitor system optimizes this critical process for the system operator by presenting system connectivity and normal status clearly and without too much detail so that they can quickly recognize, acknowledge and react to abnormal conditions. 


In a modern command and control environment, the system operator is responsible for monitoring and processing a large amount of system data presented on a variety of digital display configurations.  The Monitor system brings clarity to a complex operating environment by presenting the system operator with abnormal conditions simply, quickly and securely.


As cyberattacks and threats against critical infrastructure and control systems increase, it is important for utilities to guard against catastrophic failure.  The Monitor system is a reliable source of system connectivity when digital sources are compromised.  The certainty and availability of content displayed on the Monitor system reduces risk and ensures business continuity.
