Challenge: Collaboration for Exercise Support and Training
Any first responder who has been involved with the federal incident command system (ICS / NIMS) know how difficult it can be to coordinate and manage multiple agencies, assets and personnel – especially when the situation is dynamic or fluid. Keeping track of emerging scenarios, changing dynamics and people on the move can be frustrating and has resulted in many lessons learned over the years, especially since 9-11 and Hurricane Katrina.
Secure Cloud-based multi-media collaboration provided by Intelligent Social Media can change everything. Real-time collaboration, information sharing, multi-media tools, such as video conference, broadcast, media sharing, document storage and sharing, tactical mapping (on-the-fly) and much more are only a click away.
Intelligent Social Media has been used during Ardent Sentry exercises, by NORTHCOM, the San Diego State Viz Center, multiple agencies and even exercises involving the U.S. and Mexico – in Real Time. If you want to bridge the gap of geospatial, time zone and even cultural barriers, ISM is the solution you are looking for, and it can be employed immediately with a Near-0-Learning-Curve.
