TRUSYS announces its participation and support for the Unified Incident Command and Decision Support (UICDS) system.
UICDS is the “middleware foundation” that enables National Response Framework (NRF) and National Information Management System (NIMS), including Incident Command Structure (ICS), information sharing and decision support among commercial and government incident management technologies used across the country to prevent, protect, respond, and recover from natural, technological, and terrorist events. While most of the participants of UICDS today are technology product providers who are integrating their products to be “UICDS” compliant, TRUSYS is now offering UICDS integration for organizations, public or private, that produce security technology products or wish to ensure that their technical security infrastructure is interoperable with Federal, State and Local emergency managers as part of it R-SEC Program.
According to Mr. Ryan Taylor, CEO of TRUSYS, “We recognize that interoperability and convergence of security technologies is the key to success in developing and maintaining a security program for our clients. Understanding the UICDS Core and being able to integrate technologies enables us to provide a shortcut, both in terms of time and money, for our customers who are looking for interoperability and convergence.”
UICDS is being developed by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) with funding from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The development of UICDS is a collaborative effort between government agencies, the private sector and technology providers.
