Decisions within command and control design spaces are often the difference between life and death. Find out how user-centered design and newer technologies can be paired together in the high stakes arena of public safety to increase situational awareness of users. Many commercial hardware and software developments work well as stand-alone products, but have far greater potential when utilized together to solve more complex problems. With this mindset, hear about startups integrating with industry giants to help first responders find you quickly. Learn how incident commanders will be able to see through walls to find their crew during a structure fire, and how tracking biometrics of in-field personnel can not only save lives, but also help prevent unnecessary escalation of an incident.
