Proposal Number: 0722005
Proposal Title: WISPER (Wireless Intelligent Sensor Platform for Emergency Responders)
Topic Number: H-SB07.2-004
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: Responder - Wireless Body Area Network
Organization: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.
Address: 828 Fort Street Mall #600

Abstract: Oceanit proposes to develop a low cost, reliable, wireless mesh networking system that will enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency responders in hostile building environments. The heart of the system will use a commercial-off-theshelf (COTS) wireless mesh networking IC platform for low-power and low-cost communications. By using a wireless mesh network, low-power wireless transceivers can be used because messages do not need to be sent directly to a site commander, rather, they can be passed from node to node. Using this network, sensors can be used to monitor the vital signs of each and every emergency responder.
