Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
On Aug. 27th, E-ISG Asset Intelligence joins the team led by Haystax Technology to present innovative solutions to the Loudoun County government team, in the inaugural “Loudoun County Challenge” event organized by the Virginia-based Innovative Solutions Consortium (ISC). The team will demonstrate a variety of integrated software solutions for their proposed Loudoun County Public Safety Cloud to address the “hard problems” facing the county in its public safety, emergency operations and critical infrastructure protection missions.
The purpose of this event is to provide "proof of concept" solutions to some of Loudoun County's hard technology challenges. This inaugural event is focused on public safety and transportation issues. Participants to this event include more than a dozen technology companies, some 100 senior executives, government leaders and academics from Loudoun County, a rapidly growing 520-square-mile area that is home to nearly 350,000 residents and host to data centers that process about 70% of the world’s internet traffic.
The proposed solution from the team’s collaboration is designed to solve four inter-related problems for the county:
1. The lack of information-sharing among public safety stakeholders spread across multiple jurisdictions and a broad geographic area;
2. The lack of timely “situational awareness” regarding threats and hazards in the county;
3. Data overload created by the massive and growing amount of information that must be absorbed, understood and acted upon by those responsible for the safety of the county’s people, facilities and equipment; and
4. The lack of accurate, up-to-date information about available emergency management equipment and resources across different jurisdictions.
Among the capabilities of the “Loudoun County Public Safety Cloud” solution are a map-based interface for viewing critical infrastructure and emerging threats and hazards; mobile applications for instantaneous reporting of crimes, suspicious activities and other incidents, plus “blue force” tracking; deeply detailed catalogs of geo-located assets and emergency equipment; computer-aided dispatch (CAD), video and sensor/alarm-data integration; mobile field assessment apps; special-event management tools; social media monitoring; uploading and storage of critical documents such as emergency plans and floor plans; and much more.
