Abstract: For InCadence's SBIR Phase I effort for the Mass Casualty Triage System (MCATS) we will analyze the Management of Mass Casualty Triage problem set in the context of an end-to-end Solution Framework. The Solution Framework identifies key enablers of the overall solution including: Tagging or Identifying Victims; Support for one or more Mobile Hardware Platforms and Operating Systems; Design of the End User Application; Interface with one or more Sensors or Readers; Communications Options; Protocol Interoperability; Aggregation and Visualization of Casualty Status; and Back-end Server and Portal Options. For each enabler will evaluate options for the enabler in terms of: Cost Effectiveness, Universal Deployability, Ease of Use and Practicality. InCadence will repurpose components our several of our government-funded development efforts to rapidly prototype, evaluate and demonstrate proposed components of the end system. Repurposed components may come from our web-based near-real time Tactical Rapid Exploitation Portal (T-REX), our Multilingual Automated Registration System (MARS) which includes mobile biometric technology for fingerprint and iris collection and matching, and our Axon Cloud Broker for deploying and managing back-end server-based web services on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. The final objective of our Phase I effort will be one or more feasible, effective Solution Paths for the end-to-end prototype MCATS that InCadence will produce during the Phase II effort. Our objective is to commercialize the objective system and its components for sale to first responder agencies. We will also pursue DHS SECURE Certification for the resulting product.
