C-THRU Operational Field Assessment Report


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate works closely with the nation’s emergency response community to identify and prioritize mission capability gaps, and to facilitate the rapid development of critical solutions to address responders’ everyday technology needs. As these new technologies near completion, the National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) conducts an operational field assessment (OFA) to evaluate the prototype's capabilities and operational suitability. This report documents the results of an OFA of C-THRU, a real-time visualization system intended to provide firefighters with technology that can minimize the disorientation associated with emergency response. It offers a suite of imaging, navigation, and visual communication applications via the helmet-mounted C-THRU Navigator and corresponding Visual Command platform.
