Additionally, the Internet mapping capabilities offered through ESRI ArcIMS software has enabled IRRIS to move from a transportation data display tool to a global system for effective decision making, logistics, and asset management.
SDDC has significantly improved its ability to organize, manage, and track military personnel and military cargo throughout the world," said Paul Allred, SDDCTEA's IRRIS program manager.
The integration of OnAsset and IRRIS marks a first-of-its-kind for M2M systems and makes it possible to track in real-time the location of a truck carrying hazardous (HAZMAT) materials, receive wireless alerts during emergencies, and model a spill on the Internet with real-time weather information and GPS location.
OnAsset and IRRIS working together combines the latest advances in GIS and M2M technologies," said Jonathan Pollack, Sr.
IRRIS integrates and displays critical information about transportation infrastructure and near-real-time weather, traffic, and vehicle locations.
Together, EarthWhere and IRRIS provide users with on-demand custom imagery of a specific geographic location or terrain through a common operating picture (COP).
IRRIS gathers and integrates all types of information from the far reaches of the transportation world--about highways, railroads, marine ports, weather and defense movements--and combines this information into a visual, easy-to-understand form.
Recognizing the significant implications IRRIS could have for homeland security, as well as private industry, judges rated IRRIS as the top project of the entire competition.
IRRIS is designed for ease of use and supports a Web portal model for MTMCTEA to access infrastructure information, render maps, conduct analyses, and generate reports.
IRRIS also includes a secure fleet management subsystem that will use the IntelliWhere tracking product, enabling authorized users to track military assets such as convoys, personnel, and freight.
