Abstract
In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to develop a functional prototype of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) application using the technologies identified, knowledge gained, and preliminary design conceived during the Phase I effort. As designed, the Weather ACE application will be a non-intrusive software solution that leverages geo-fencing technologies to correlate user location (static or mobile), with weather threats or hazards (as forecast by NWS forecasters), to provide targeted and tailored alerts and notifications to affected users in a format designed to evoke safety seeking responses. As outlined in the proposal, supplemental research will drive closure to open items illuminated during Phase I, and will be used to refine and finalize the Phase I preliminary design from which the prototype will be constructed. The functionality of the Weather ACE application will be demonstrated to Government Stakeholders at the conclusion of this Phase II SBIR.
