To address the DHS need for a downloadable commercial software application that provides personal situational awareness to individuals based on their (stated) location, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Context-Sensitive Situational Awareness Server/Client (CSSAS/C) system. This proposed technology is based on geospatial analysis and dynamic datareduction and validation techniques. CSSAS/C offers a subscription-based push service that sends customized alerts derived from multiple sources (e.g., weather warnings, sigalerts), conditioned relative to the user`s location, state, surroundings, and other contextual information. Alerts can be viewed on mobile communication devices. In Phase I POC will demonstrate the feasibility of CSSAS/C by developing and debugging prototype software to exhibit the user operations involved in subscribing to and using the service. In Phase II POC plans to develop and demonstrate enhanced client/server software that meets specific CONOPS requirements. Successful project completion at the end of Phase III will benefit the nation by supplying subscribers, who now wait minutes to hours for information, with real-time alerts on handheld devices describing local risks and threats. Commercial applications of CSSAS/C include providing alerts to fixed-location Internet devices for delivery to users who are homebound or do not have mobile communication devices.
