SUMMIT for Homeland Emergency Response and Planning (SHERPA) Fact Sheet

Preparing state, local, tribal, and territorial governments responders for a rapidly evolving, and diverse set of hazards and threats is a major challenge. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has funded the development of Standard Unified Modeling, Mapping, and Integration Toolkit (SUMMIT) for Homeland Emergency Response and Planning (SHERPA), a software toolkit that that will provide the DHS operational components with a scalable modeling and simulation platform to efficiently generate science-based data on hazards and their complex, cascading effects for the emergency preparedness community.
