Abstract
First Responders need to leverage automated (M2M machine-to-machine), mobile connectivity at an incident site. With connectivity automated through M2M network technology, responders would have much improved situational awareness, and can effectively focus their complete attention on the necessary emergency response actions. We propose to develop a futuristic automated M2M prototype system/architecture, that could be initially deployed NOW, that would enable M2M devices at the emergency site (building sensors, people, and other first responders) to automatically "talk" to each other, providing automated situational awareness and inter-communications. We intend to leverage our previous SBIR Phase I/II/III work and experience in M2M architectures to design and prototype an operational solution that can evolve and leverage emerging "Internet-of-Everything" technologies in the coming years. This solution can be immediately integrated and commercialized into our existing fourDscape situational awareness, command and control, safety, security, and response product/marketplace.
