|Abstract:||The speed at which an attack is detected is a critical trigger for all responses to follow. The accurate determination of the type of attack will determine the type of emergency personnel and response needed. The location will determine by proximity which of the responders that are available can be first on the scene. Therefore, a system that can do that based on a multitude of input feeds such as sensors is of outmost importance. While sensor put out information - making sense in quick fashion of the data is paramount. A system such as Optima HLS that can fuse data from multiple sources, correlate it, find the root cause, and then automatically notify the required first responders will play a significant role in helping evacuate victims in a timely manner and therefore save lives. DAX intends to show a proof of concept prototype of its in house technology Optima HLS used in the identification and response to simulated incidents. To this effect inexpensive COTS sensors will be used to mock fire, collision, and explosion events in a subterranean tunnel and show how first responder response time can be improved when provided in real -time with accurate situational awareness.|
