Title: Situational Awareness Visualization for Emergency Responder (SAVFER)
Agency: DHS
Contract: NBCHC070068
Award Amount: $99,504.00


Situational awareness is important in all activities that humans do for safety and efficiency reasons. Emergency personal situational awareness is currently limited by the inability to visualize and track the position of responders within a structure by commanders. Commanders are also restricted by the lack of up to the second location information of personal along with important points of interest within the building such as danger points, known victims, and available assets. The proposed SBIR will develop a technology called Awareness Visualization For Emergency Responder (SAVFER) that will take existing architectural design drawings and floor plans of structures and quickly convert them into a format that can then be displayed in a 3D manner to rescuers and commanders alike. SAVER will also allow the real time automatic updating and tracking of emergency personal within a building without the need for human interaction. This technology will be easy to use, scaleable and cross platform portable.
