Armed with current member and equipment data, incident commanders can make the right decisions, quickly and efficiently, when faced with a crisis. Mission Manager enables first responders to obtain, manage and share critical information during emergencies or events.

Mission Execution

MISSION EXECUTION

Mission execution begins here, where team leaders can create and manage missions ranging from severe weather events, tactical callouts and natural disasters to search-and-rescue missions and training events. Users can select the type of mission from more than 20 pre-set mission types – each with unique features – or they can create their own mission.

The description includes the location of the mission, including command post location, objectives, weather information and communications frequencies. A leader can quickly assemble and staff a team, provide the members with the proper equipment and assign them to the field from a single device – and then view their activities in real time.

CHECK-IN

Upon arriving at the mission, members are required to enter their name, email or ID number to check-in. Only active members can log into a mission, but administrators can quickly add new guest members from other agencies as needed. Once an existing member is checked-in, incident managers can view their certifications and window of availability.

TEAM BUILDING

Team deployment is quickly accomplished using this simple drag-and-drop screen. Checked-in, field-ready personnel will appear in the “available personnel” column, so they can be assigned to a team. Members can then be added to teams and other positions in the ICS with a simple drag-and-drop.

SUBJECTS

A vast amount of data is captured here, including a missing person’s or suspect’s name, address, point last seen, physical description, clothing, medical conditions, personality traits, mental capacity, vehicles, witnesses, friends and much more. The information can be printed in ICS format for confidential briefings or exported as a distributable missing person’s flyer.

CLUES

Members can document and/or view various clues found in the field, including description, location, photo and chain-of-custody information, and distribute the information to Mission Manager via their cell phone. With geocoded location information, these clues will automatically appear on the mission map. Mission Manager will record a printable log of clues provided for each mission, allowing users to create a clue report following the mission.

MAPS

Mission Manager has extensive mapping options to assist the deployment and management of teams in the field. It allows users to insert map markers for critical items, plan for future operations and print custom maps. Major mapping features include:

  • Base Layers: Includes several choices of base layer mapping, including Google maps.
  • Overlays: Approximately 106 map overlays with custom transparency levels help planners create truly custom maps. Overlays include major categories such as topography, aviation, weather, points of interest, hospitals, police and fire stations, schools, social media feeds, transportation features, boundaries, cameras and natural hazards such as earthquake fault lines, floods, hurricanes and fires. Up to five additional custom map links may be entered in the system.
  • Map Elements: Allows users to drop markers onto the map to identify major items, such as command post, lost subject information, clues and staged equipment.
  • Area Sectioning: Generates custom drawn areas using polygons, circles and pies. Draw lines to represent team assignments or other paths.
  • Tracking: Enables users to draw tracks of teams in the field, based on communications or real-time, auto-tracking using a third-party tracking system that links into Mission Manager.
