Emergency Planning and Response

We are developing techniques to provide task-appropriate representations and analysis tools for emergency planning, management, and response. These tools range from Emergency Operation Center (EOC) displays and Common Operating Picture (COP) displays to coordinated first responder/in-field personnel mobile displays.

Tasks

  • Demonstrate a mobile, low-cost exercise monitoring system
  • Provide increased EOC and in-field situational awareness through integrated visual analytics
  • Track, display, and interact with actions and events during and after training exercises
  • Track up to 20 exercise participants responding to and within a scenario building
