Headwall partners with Public Safety experts and advances to Phase 3 in the NIST CommanDING Tech Challenge

BELTSVILLE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2022 / -- Headwall1 is pleased to announce that our technology has been selected to advance to Phase 3 of the NIST CommanDING2 Tech Challenge. The Headwall Team will travel to Boulder, CO for the Phase 3 Lab Assessment where experts will test the solution’s capabilities during a simulated event.

"Headwall is excited to advance to Phase 3 and would like to thank the team of Public Safety experts, including Ron Siarnicki and Ken Rehbehn, who were willing to provide critical feedback. We took significant strides during Phases 1 and 2 to tailor the solution for first responders and we are excited about the current state of Headwall’s Virtual Command Center" said Geoff Bund, Headwall CEO.

About the NIST CommanDING Tech Challenge
Emergency situations are complicated, time-sensitive, and demanding events. An effective public safety response requires naming a commander, allocating resources, mapping the area of impact, tracking individuals and objects, identifying areas of concern, and more. Through the CommanDING Tech Challenge, PSCR is hoping to improve the quality and usability of incident command dashboards. The challenge is looking to improve existing dashboards and also provides an opportunity for new entries into the field. PSCR is looking for dashboards that improve public safety officials’ ability to respond to emergencies through effective user interfaces and user experiences, the ability to work with data input from sensors and video streams, and the ability to locate both stationary and mobile sensors in 3-D space.
