In the past, we’ve issued a couple of press releases (here and here) about some of the work we have done with the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We’ve been working together for the past 18 months or so to deliver cross-agency sharing of real-time information about radiological activity from sensors in major cities, at airports and at other ports-of-entry around the US.
This week, Nick Harris (of the Information Sharing Environment) posted an update on the ISE website detailing the substantial progress in tracking and accurately communicating information about radiological events. The multi-city, multi-agency demonstration took place earlier in July, and Solace was very proud to have participated with DNDO to demonstrate and communicate the role and value of the Mission Critical Messaging (MCM) backbone.
It’s pretty cool stuff, check it out here.
