S&T Integration of Video Data to Improve Situational Awareness in Response to an Active Shooter Event Fact Sheet

First responders rarely have an accurate picture of what is happening inside of a school during an emergency. The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) sponsored the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) and its subcontractor, SpectraRep, to develop an enhanced information technology infrastructure to better integrate and distribute video to address this issue and design an exercise to evaluate the potential of video integration to improve school safety.
