Charles River Analytics Develops Emergency Support Component for the Department of Homeland Security

Charles River Analytics, a developer of intelligent system solutions, presents PIECES, an emergency support component for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). PIECES, a Precision Information Environment for Coordinated Emergency Support, is part of an effort to develop integrated collaborative work environments that help teams of emergency responders share and manipulate data sources.

The Problem
During a disaster, emergency personnel must collaborate with a diverse staff distributed across numerous sites and operations centers. Emergency responders can be overwhelmed by the staggering amount of time-sensitive information coming in through different software applications and the critical pace by which this information has to be understood and distributed to other personnel. DHS has brought together a diverse team of universities, small businesses, and Federal Research centers and National Laboratories to develop components that target these needs.


The Charles River Analytics Solution
As one of DHS’s partners, Charles River has developed visualization and communication components. PIECES enables responders to:

  • View multiple information resources through a single access point
  • Support manipulation, understanding, and exploitation of data sources through multi-modal displays
  • Share and manipulate data sources in real-time

The Benefit
PIECES integrates critical data from multiple sources and communications channels and presents them through interfaces that emergency personnel can tailor to their needs. Firefighters, police, and other rescue workers can access the information they need in real time. PIECES allows these and other First Responders to share such information, which is vital to  collaboration across federal, state, and local agencies and jurisdictions. By providing a more integrated perspective across these boundaries, PIECES provides a unique opportunity to improve the lifesaving capabilities of emergency responders in large-scale disasters.
