Title: Innovative 2D/3D Building, Asset, and Resource Tracking Visualization Tool
Agency: DHS
Contract: NBCHC070060
Award Amount: $99,993.00


In this proposal, Kutta capitalizes on existing DOD investments and its own 2D and 3D visualization tools, and leverages the world-renowned computer graphics department at Arizona State University (ASU). This prior work experience and knowledge allows the team to build a resource and asset tracking tool for incident commanders with powerful 2D and 3D visualization capabilities. Kutta and its prestigious partners, including ASU and the entire Tempe, Arizona Fire Department, use a proven software engineering methodology to derive the set of functionality and built-in features for the visualization tool. Based upon the functionality assessment, Kutta leverages its experience in architecting and designing highly-reliable, component-based, software with very user friendly interfaces to build a prototype device. The Phase I effort culminates in a demonstration that allows an operator to plan, track real and simulated resources, and annotate objects in 2D and 3D building environments. At the end of the Phase I effort, Kutta delivers a system and software requirements document and a list of ┬┐must have┬┐ functionality for the development of the visualization tool under a Phase II effort.
