DART Ground
Coordinating Teams of First Responders

How can team leaders maintain an accurate and up to date, overview of the situation.

Team leaders are equipped with DART Ground, installed on a rugged tablet computer. DART Ground inputs data from DART Track and communicates with other team leaders and the incident commander using MESH radios. This displays real time graphical information on a map background to provide real-time information including: 

Where are the head, fingers and flanks of the fire? 
Where are the spot fires? 
What is the extent of the fire and where is it heading? 
Where are my people and are they safe?

If a team member is injured or separated or in potential danger, their location and emergency status is automatically input into the network and team leaders can take action immediately.
If the situation changes (for example, a change of wind direction) and a first responder is in danger, DART automatically recognises the danger and alerts the team leaders and incident commander. 

Team leaders can also send messages and alerts to an individual or an entire a team in the field to instruct them how to proceed or warn them of a threat.
By regularly updating data on the extent of a fire, the situation commanders and team leaders can see how a wildfire is spreading and take early action to minimise damage to people, property and the environment. 

In other disasters such as earthquakes, data could include the location of survivors, or the predicted extent of a flood and the locations of people needing rescuing, as spotted by the drones.

Enhanced Operational Safety 

DART automatically creates an active zone perimeter (geofencing), which can be set to alert if a tracked person, object, or vehicle enters or leaves an area designated as dangerous. Enabling them to be alerted and to move before the situation becomes critical. The alert activates aural and visual warnings on their personal tablet computer and / or DART track devices.
