HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 29 (UPI) -- Intergraph announced it has been selected to join a team developing emergency information-sharing technologies for the U.S. Homeland Security Department.
U.S. company Intergraph will join the team supporting the Homeland Security Department Science and Technology Directorate's Unified Incident Command and Decision Support.
The UICDS project, lead by Science Applications International Corp., is an initiative to develop a national architecture for multi-jurisdictional emergency information sharing.
Intergraph, the first computer-aided dispatch provider working on the UICDS project, has "successfully demonstrated that emergency personnel can share information independent of the specific CAD product in use," a release said.
"The UICDS prototype demonstration illustrated how a wide variety of applications can share information through a diverse set of interfaces, data formats and networks using non-proprietary, open standards," Chip Mahoney, SAIC project manager for UICDS, said in a statement.
