Program Structure and Approach
The National Capital Region (NCR) includes the District of Columbia and parts of Maryland and Virginia 6,000 square miles 4.2 million citizens 23 local jurisdictions Operating as a regional partnership, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG), these jurisdictions have been working together since 1957 to implement intergovernmental policies, plans and programs In 2005, the MWCOG Chief Information Officers (CIO) Committee established the NCR Interoperability Program (NCRIP), a regional initiative to create an Interoperable Communications Infrastructure (ICI) for public safety and emergency response utilizing funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security CAD2CAD was one of many data exchanges envisioned to run over this infrastructure

DEH Connecting the Dots
  • The DEH is a Service Oriented Architecture
    designed to
  • facilitate information sharing between Emergency
    Support Functions to improve emergency response
  • reduce response times
  • enable appropriate deployment of resources
  • Economies of Scale will be realized through the
    reuse and sharing of technology and data

7
DEH Goals and Strategic Objectives

CAD2CAD Data Exchange Goals and Deliverables
  • CAD2CAD is the first Operational Exchange on the
    ICI.
  • CAD Integration means many things to many people
  • CAD Incidents on a Regional Map
  • Transfer of eBOLO Messages between CAD Systems
  • Unified Dispatch
  • Ability to automatically request a resource
  • The DEH CAD2CAD Data Exchange Consists of
  • Two Web Services
  • Unit Status Update provides the real-time status
    of fire units
  • Request for Resource allows jurisdictions to
    request units from one another in mutual aid
    responses
  • Command and Control Console
  • Allows Exchange participants to monitor the
    operational status of each jurisdiction, utilize
    the System or Emergency Override capability for
    their own jurisdiction, and log units on and off
    the Exchange
  • CAD2CAD Customer Portal
  • Directs Exchange Participants to the links for
    Incident Reporting, Standard Operating
    Procedures, the Command Console, and Change
    Advisory Board materials

Vendor Participation
Detailed Technical Specifications Detailed Functional Specifications SOWs reference Specifications Vendors are competitors with different technical implementations - adhering to national standards and consistent and well-documented requirements is essential to ensure fairness to all and willingness to participate

  • Standards

23
Service Oriented ArchitectureRequires Adherence
to Standards
Artifacts should comply with National Standards
to ensure ability to reuse data

Development Life Cycle Approach Develop
Latency, not Load, was the prime driver for Technology Selection Ability to Support the Selected Platform after Go Live Serialization of Large NIEM Compliant Schemas is the Challenge In addition to the 2 Core Web Services (i.e. R2I2 and USU), an End User Portal accessible to all Dispatch Centers must contain Command and Control Console to monitor Heartbeat (ie. Network and Application Connectivity) Electronic processes for requesting Changes to Mapping of Data (Unit, Event Type and Unit Status) Electronic processes for Adding Deleting Units, Event Types and Unit Status) Access to the online Service Desk Access to documented SOPs

33

34
Development Life Cycle Approach Training
  • Common Training Objectives across all 3
    jurisdictions
  • Jurisdictions have different training schedules
    but coordination is required to support
    responding to requests in training

35
Development Life Cycle Approach Implement
  • CAD2CAD Functional SOPs signed by Fire Chiefs
  • Safecom Template
  • CAD2CAD Customer Portal

Incident Management and Change Management
  • Well-defined and fully supported IT Service
    Support processes are crucial to the operation of
    the DEH CAD2CAD Exchange.

50
Service Desk
  • End-Users directly log Incidents and Change
    Requests.
  • Service Desk Staff use Incident Reporting
    software to respond to and track outstanding
    issues.

51
Next Steps for CAD Interoperability in the NCR
Unifying public safety communications (radio and data) across ESFs and executing on the vision of information sharing Formalize processes for deciding on what to invest in, enhance, or maintain the governance structure itself Outreach and buy-in by jurisdictions (across all ESFs)

Interoperability is a process that involves
planning, requirements, and communication with
many public safety and non-public safety
disciplines. By establishing common values such
as a bottom-up or practitioner driven approach
and collaborative processes to share resources, a
region can agree on common needs to support the
interoperability vision.
