Denver to Implement 10-County CAD-to-CAD Interoperability System
Friday, June 14, 2019 | Comments

Emerging Digital Concepts (EDC) was selected to provide its CAD-to-CAD interoperability solution for the 10-county Denver metro area known as the North Central All Hazards Region. EDC, in conjunction with partner GeoComm, will also deploy GeoComm Smart City Map, a three-dimensional map display providing a common operating picture (COP) with integrated sensor feeds, for enhanced regional situational awareness.

NG-CAD-X provides state-of-the-art interoperability among public-safety answering points (PSAPs) and their CAD systems with features that include real-time remote unit status, remote unit dispatching, messaging, unit roster and status notification, and up-to-date incident details from neighboring jurisdictions on mutual incidents. When paired with mapping, these features improve response time, unify mutual aid coordination and enhance emergency situational awareness.

The initial installation includes ADCOM911, Thornton, Westminster, and the city and county of Broomfield. The program is funded through FEMA’s Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), which assists high-threat, high-density urban areas in preventing acts of terrorism.

“Horizontal integration between local, regional and federal agencies has been a priority in recent years among PSAPs,” said Greg Crider, EDC chief technology officer (CTO). “The demand by stakeholders to have CAD system technologies integrate this type of data sharing to occur has been a priority to first responders.”
