Abstract
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. At the end of the Phase II effort, Kutta delivers a working prototype system that utilizes our intuitive user interface, 2D/3D visualization of building assets, and first responders using positioning from integrated sensor information.
