On September 28 there will be a demonstration of the OASIS Common Alerting Protocol version 1.0 (CAP 1.0). This will be part of National Preparedness Month, and will be sponsored by the DHS Disaster Management Initiative and the Emergency Interoperability Consortium (www.eic.org).
The demonstration will be centered in Washington and focused on three major government users of CAP 1.0: NOAA, USGS and CAPWIN. However, any company that has built an interface to the DMIS interoperability server and CAP 1.0 may participate and will receive recognition. You may participate in person, or remotely. This is an excellent opportunity to expose your company’s technology to the emergency response community and Federal agencies. We encourage vendors who do not currently have the capability to perform these functions to work with us to develop the interfaces necessary to exchange these types of date messages.
If you are interested, please contact Sukumar Dwarkanath at email@example.com, or at 202-429-0574. There may be limitations on the number of participants, so please let us know by next Tuesday if you are seriously interested. We will provide more details for those companies that wish to participate.
There will be follow on demonstrations in October and November for companies that have built interfaces to the EDXL prototypes as well.
