Next-Generation Incident Command System (NICS)
The Next-generation of Incident Command System (NICS) is a DHS S&T sponsored program that integrates current and next-generation Incident Command System (ICS) Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) and supports real-time collaboration in a web-browser, map-based environment with shared whiteboarding, data overlays and text chatting. This online approach promotes a high-fidelity distributed Common Operating Picture (COP) that enhances voice-relayed information, while reducing the demands on frequently overloaded radio frequencies. Furthermore, the system streamlines information distribution and maintains valuable incident archives by capturing decisions and conversations that are lost in current voice-centric disaster responses. 65
NGFR Smart Hub Quick Start Guide
The DHS S&T Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) Apex program is committed to support our Nation’s first responders—law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical personnel—in carrying out their duties. As part of their efforts, the NGFR Apex program is developing the First Responder On-Body Next Generation Architecture (Smart Hub). This architecture has been developed to guide vendors in developing Smart Hub modules that will interact successfully with one another and provide the capabilities needed by first responders in the execution of their missions. The Smart Hub Quick-Start Guide introduces the information systems, software subsystems, and hardware /software devices that fulfill a set of initial Smart Hub requirements. The NGFR Apex team would like to invite a selected audience to access and provide comments on this living document throughout the next several months to make sure the handbook meets the needs of our industry partners for a better and smoother technology integration and cooperation. 14
