1 Leveraging Information Technology and Telecommunications for Crisis Management Invited Talk to The Workshop on Crisis Response University of California, Irvine March 19, 2002 Dr. Larry Smarr Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technologies Professor, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering Jacobs School of Engineering, UCSD

2 IT and Telecomm are the Key Technologies for Crisis Management How Do We Know: –The Detailed Current State of the System NOW? –What the Future Evolution of the Situation is Likely to Be? How Can We Achieve: –An Overall Situational Awareness? –A Common Operational Picture? How Do We Communicate With: –Crisis Managers? –First Responders? How Can We Decide: –Which Problem to Attack First? –Which Assets Should Be Deployed Where and When?

3 How Can the Future Internet Enhance Capabilities for Emergency Preparedness? Enabled by Expansion of Internet Infrastructure –Wireless Extends Coverage Everywhere –Optical Backbone Provides High Bandwidth –New Generation of Sensors and Receivers Three Tier System –Wireless SensorNets Brings Data to Repositories –Collaborative Crisis Management Data Centers –Remote Wireless Devices Interrogate Databases Building a Living-in-the-Future Laboratory –UCSD, UCI, and SDSU Campuses –San Diego, Orange County, Cross Border –Collaboration with City, County, and State Govts.
