Bases need to keep energy supplies reliable and secure even when dependent upon civilian suppliers. The technology provides the commander the forecasts of supply conditions for up to 96 hours based on energy control actions within the base and by civilian suppliers outside the base.
Primary Application Area: Energy, Efficiency

Value Proposition: A COP can be obtained through the use of multiple technologies and/or media synthesized on their common location element. It is important to equip a command center with as much connectivity to information sources as possible, including live news feeds, weather data, live map data, remote sensing data, tabular data, building plans, and charts/graphs. The end user then has the opportunity to "turn on" the data needed that is relevant to the mission to create actionable information.
Originally developed to support ESF-12 during the North American hurricane season, it has been expanded to include non-proprietary feeds for non-federal users and for humanitarian response. Output layers from VERDE analysis and modeling components, the standard Google Earth layers, and external system feeds provide further valuable spatial context, creating a dramatically more informative system view.
For industry, this capability can be integrated into the next generation EMS providing a dominant advantage in a $319 million infrastructure market.
