Harris County - Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) Case Study: Enhanced Situational Awareness


This case study describes how DHS S&T augmented situational awareness during the NGFR – Harris County Operational Experimentation (OpEx), taking real-time data from numerous sensors and displaying it on unified situational awareness applications to give the Incident Commander, command staff and first responders the right information at the right time. It provides an overview of the systems used, the challenges encountered and the solutions implemented for the OpEx, as well as considerations that any public safety agency should think through if they intend to implement situational awareness applications for their organization.
