About This Project

We recently received a $1.2M grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program for “Modeling and Development of Resilient Communication”. The team lead is Prof. K. K. Ramakrishnan from University of California, Riverside, and includes PIs Prof. Murat Yuksel from University of Central Florida, Prof. Hulya Seferoglu from University of Illinois, Chicago and Dr. Jiachen Chen from Rutgers University. This project (see Project Description ) seeks to model and develop resilient communication for first responders in disaster management. Effective communication among first responders during and in the aftermath of a disaster can affect outcomes dramatically. We seek to build a resilient architecture that allows dynamically formed groups of first responder teams to communicate even when there is damage to infrastructure. This work is funded by NIST’s Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program .
