Cabezon Group article published in Homeland Security Today magazine
September 30, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cabezon Group is pleased to announce it has published a feature article in Homeland Security Today Magazine.
“Three Dimensional ICS” – the Incorporation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) into the NIMS and ICS Frameworks discusses the present status of using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in various Emergency Management related roles, and that with the present availability and affordability of multi-functional UAS platforms and sensor technologies–and their demonstrated capability to provide critical information for a wide variety of incident scenarios–they appear to be on the precipice of widespread acceptance and use within the responder community. The article further discusses how the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS) will incorporate and manage these new “resources” and “processes” within their respective frameworks.
“This is a new era in the evolution of ICS/NIMS information and technology management, and it’s rapidly unfolding before our very eyes. Future acceptance of unmanned systems will be bolstered as real-world success stories of UAS assets playing a positive and vital role in incident responses continue to be reported. The relevant policies, procedures and structures are yet to be written, and input from people in the field–who are currently dealing with or considering these new challenges and opportunities–will be key to developing the very guidelines that lead all of us into a new future” said John Fisher, Cabezon Group’s Chief Executive Officer.
