We present the National Incident Visualization System, NIVS. NIVS is a combination of software elements that leverage the capabilities and prevalence of smart-phone technology to create a single point of reference for aggregated information and information sharing during a fire-based emergency at an airport. NIVS aggregates GPS location and status information from personnel and resources with Airport Emergency Plans into a GUI environment on a smart-phone, tablet, or computer, which allows emergency managers to filter critical information in a real-time display. NIVS provides a means of secondary communication of non-verbal data and information between managers and responders, adding to the existing response framework in an innocuous manner. We present the details of NIVS' three core components; the NIVS Server, the NIVS Incident Command View (ICV), and the NIVS App. We detail the Phase I goals and work leading to prototype deployment and testing in Phase II. We describe our highly capable and unique team of experts in emergency management, communications, system development and prototyping, airport management, and airport fire response training.
