Canada-U.S. Enhanced Resiliency Experiment (CAUSE IV) Binational After Action Report

The Canada-United States Enhanced (CAUSE) Resiliency experiment series is a collaborative effort between Defence Research and Development Canada’s Centre for Security Science (DRDC CSS), Public Safety (PS) Canada, and the United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) First Responders Group (FRG). This experiment series addresses the Canada-U.S. Beyond the Border (BTB) Action Plan: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Safety and Economic Competitiveness. Specifically, the CAUSE experiment series addresses the Canada-U.S. commitment to improve response coordination during binational disasters. To date, four experiments have been conducted within the CAUSE series. Each experiment shared alerts, warnings and notifications between emergency response organizations. The information sharing was enabled through existing and emerging interoperable technologies.
