1. Responder Health and Safety
Design or enhance risk-informed mitigation solutions that protect, increase, or enhance the capacity or capabilities of responders, structures, materials, products.
2. Enhanced Operability (Communications)
Enhance the capacity for timely communications in support of security, situational awareness, and/or operations by any and all means available, among and between affected responder communities in the event area resulting in increased decision time or option availability.
3. Situational Assessment and Detection
Provide Responder decision makers with decision-relevant information regarding the nature and extent of event related hazards, any cascading effects, and the status of decision implementation and incident management systems associated with key operational activities and critical infrastructure sectors from pre-event through post event/return/recovery.
Identify and locate threats and/or hazards through active and passive surveillance and search mechanisms. This may include the use of systematic examinations and assessments, bio-surveillance, etc.
Any ground-breaking emerging or cutting edge dual-use technology supported by the Department of Defense that can provide a solution to first responders that does not fit one of the focus areas listed above and that results in increased responder capacity, capabilities and/or decreased Human Resource/life cycle cost.
