Research Institution
The recent outbreak of E. coli only served to remind us of the vulnerability of our food production. It stirred memories of an amateur bio-terror attack using salmonella in local salad bars in an attempt to influence a local election in Oregon. In handling any bio-terrorism event, there are two facets to consider, pre-event crisis management and post-event consequence management. Crisis management includes measures to identify, acquire, and plan the use of resources necessary to anticipate, prevent, detect, and resolve the event. Post-event consequence management entails outbreak control, treatment, and more. 21st Century Systems Incorporated is pleased to propose the research and development of a tool to provide state-of-the-art data source aggregation, interpretation, visualization, and decision support for pre-event indications and warning, crisis response, and consequence management. We call our Phase I concept Webster-Med. Webster-Med product encompasses both facets of the challenge: crisis response and consequence management. The crisis response portion encompasses a pre-event tool for detection and situational awareness. The sources of data for the detection process could include open sources, ED data, intelligence reports, battlefield sensors, and more. The consequence management portion will incorporate decision aids for monitoring the outbreak, mitigation (treatment, resource allocation, etc.), and resolution.
