The Challenge

"The lack of interoperability in public safety communications has been a long-standing concern given the essential role these communications play in protecting lives, health, and property."

When disaster strikes, help rushes in from many directions. It comes from different people, different agencies, and different levels of government. Historically, Public Safety and First Responder (PSFR) communities across the nation have relied upon Land Mobile Radio (LMR) or Land Mobile Radio Systems (LMRS) to communicate verbally. Even though Project 25 (P25) standards were introduced by Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) to improve LMR/LMRS interoperability challenges, over 10,000 different configurations of LMR/LMRS systems are in use across the nation. Recent poll found that over 70% of all PSFR communications are being conducted via Long-Term Evolution (LTE) enabled smartphones which eleviate many interoperability problems that remain with todays P12 enabled solutions. Recognizing the additional value offered through the use of data-centric content that LTE networks Congress enacted “The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012”, containing landmark provisions to create a much-needed nationwide interoperable broadband network, later called FirstNet. After years of preparation, in March of 2017, AT&T was selected to build and manage FirstNet, a public-safety grade LTE-based cellular network dedicated to First Responders.  

While FirstNet deployment is now underway, the innovative application software programs - or “Apps”, and the companion collection of resilient infrastructure “Services” necessary to empower FirstNet-enabled PSFR personnel are just now being vetted for inclusion in the FirstNet App Catalog. Once vetted they are posted for subsequent download to FirstNet enabled phones and tablets.  iCode's First Response eXplorer (FRX) mobile app is designed to address mission-critical needs of PSFR personnel operating in-the-field. FRX supports the electronic exchange and use of time critical content including Incidents, Interactive Maps and Geospatial Overlays, MultiMedia (e.g., Still and Full Motion Imagery), and Chat across organizations. One of the compelling capabilities FRX promotes is an end-user extensible near-real time geo-spatial situational awareness display. Digital content is provided to FRX apps through our companion Public Safety Cloud Service (PSCS) infrastructure, that draws from digital content managed through local and regional providers and other content sourced from external but authoritative content providers (i.e., Weather, and Earthquake Early Warning services).

Mobility continues to transform how the Department of Defense (DoD) operates, connects, and supports its most valuable stakeholders – the warfighter themselves.  Military users are becoming increasingly empowered with the latest commercial smartphones, tablets, and apps they can download through the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Mobile Application Store (MAS).  Department of Navy (DoN) components such as NAVAIR and SPAWAR are pursuing the development of viable mobile software applications tailored for specific warfare area communities they support today and emerging warfighter needs of tomorrow.  MiWorld App is designed for mobile innovators attending the US Naval Academy (USNA), Naval War College (NWC) and Naval Post Graduate School (NPS) who need to explore and share advanced decision making options in a secure and extensible manner.

Our Mobile innovation World (MiWorld) application is designed to address these emerging needs in a secure but extensible mobile application framework.  At its core, MiWorld incorporates a powerful geospatial situational awareness engine, capable caching raster, vector, and gridded products for rapid access and use even when no communications network is readily available.  Different geospatially-encoded overlay data streams can be accessed and cached (locally) for access and rendering at a later time.  Moreover a variety of App Extension modules can be incorporated to extend MiWorld’s baseline – or core, functionality.  Additional problem solving / decision making tools are also being developed as MiWorld App Extensions, to assist in synchronizing user Observe, Orient, Decide, Act (OODA) loops, or activities of distributed battle force participants.

iCode will be demonstrating a subset of the overall capabilities available through our First Response eXplorer (FRX) mobile app and companion FireCast Services during the annual MAST Expo, and in conjunction with the Coastal Trident 2020 Full Scale Exercise (FSE).

Details outlining iCode’s role in CT-2020 will be posted here as they are solidified.
