This team is looking for
Human operators in ad-hoc control centers for large-scale events, such as road traffic control for charity bike rides and waterway management for boat races, or severe weather research teams aka storm chasers who rely on direction finding information, need to monitor a plethora of information obtained from diverse sources. To support users in detecting critical situations within this information overload and taking timely actions, operators thus need adequate information fusion and decision support systems. In response to the main challenge to identify the best use of the Satori messaging platform and advanced features, including open data channels, and the Live Data Hack Challenge, I focused my efforts to create a dedicated Situation Awareness (SAW) systems. The application can assist the operator in managing current situations. My training as an air battle manager means I have experience and knowledge of working on highly modified Boeing 707 airframes equipped with long-range radars and other sensor systems that ingest streams of data. Should I win the top prize and/or the themed challenged, I intend to replace the aging Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) that is 2-way amateur radio-based with a Satori-based system for real time digital communications of information of immediate value in a local area. Live streaming data can include latitude and longitude coordinates, weather information, text messages, announcements, queries, and other layered open data channel information such as search and rescue details.
