One Step Ahead of the Crisis: What Does the Future Hold for Emergency Communications Systems?

Disaster preparedness requires seamless communication for decision-makers to say one step ahead of the crisis. Calit2@UCI has built a test bed that allows industry partners and crisis responders to refine their software and hardware technologies. Join us March 1, 2007 to:

  • Learn about this new proving ground for emerging research innovations;
  • See demonstrations of the Evak-Pak, mobile sensing platforms, people counters and other technological prototypes;
  • Discover opportunities for collaboration and product investment.

When Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger delivered his annual State of the State address this past January 2007, he reiterated the need to invest in disaster preparedness, including threats to public health. Coordination between the state agencies with specific emergency preparedness and response roles is critical to improving California's ability to respond to an emergency. He asked legislators to join him in tackling some of California's most pressing challenges and top of the list was Disaster response technology.

Researchers at Calit2@UCI along with their partners will showcase Disaster Preparedness and how they are part t of the solution........
