Abstract: The team of Pictometry International, Harris RF and ITT Space Systems has provided a high level design and a capabilities demonstration for Phase I for the near real-time remote sensing data collection system: Real-time Airborne data Management System (RAMS). The system will utilize a varied suite of deployable receivers in the field based on diverse emergency response sensor needs. The objective of this Phase II effort will be to develop a commercially viable scalable system that can be used for disaster response, with special emphasis on large hurricane scenarios. The team has addressed the following in Phase II: - Developing mobile receive units and devising a solution to quickly deploy them in a disaster zone where infrastructure is destroyed - Automating flight planning so that aerial assets can be more effectively deployed - Processing data on the aircraft as part of the sensor technology - Downloading large data streams from the aircraft to the mobile units in an efficient fashion - Quickly disseminating the data from the mobile units to multiple remote locations based on the requirements of each location - Providing a command and control function to track aerial and ground assets and to redeploy based on emerging priorities
