DHS DNDO selects Solace Systems geospatial routing solution for EMN
Ottawa, Canada-based Solace Systems reports that DHS’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) has selected its Unified Messaging Platform as a “prototype integration platform to enhance threat monitoring and response capabilities of local, state and federal emergency organizations in urban areas.”
According to the company, under this prototype, Solace message routers will be used in conjunction with strategically placed sensors, as well as applications responsible for recognizing threats and coordinating responses, to improve the country’s ability to protect population centers and critical infrastructure.
Solace also notes that its content and geospatial routing products are compliant with the Emergency Data Exchange Language suite of standards, which the DHS has adopted to improve communication between government agencies and non-governmental organizations.
“Improving situational awareness of potential security threats in major cities is a top priority,” Bob Dilonardo, CIO of the DNDO, said in a statement. “The addition of geospatial routing to our data distribution system will enable the real-time monitoring and information exchange we need to quickly and securely coordinate effective responses across all levels of government.”
Solace characterizes its technology as being able to define location as a single point of longitude and latitude, by proximity to a particular point or by inclusion within irregularly defined areas like security zones, flood plains or radioactive plumes.
