Wearable Alert and Monitoring System (WAMS) Fact Sheet


The Wearable Alert and Monitoring System (WAMS) currently under development by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), in partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), is a distributed, intelligent IoT communication system that will bring seamless situational awareness to first responders. WAMS works with JPL’s Assistant for Understanding Data through Reasoning, Extraction & Synthesis (AUDREY) system. AUDREY uses human-like artificial intelligence to understand the needs of first responders and incident managers and provide feedback based on that understanding.
