The City of Columbus, Ohio, has selected SuperComs Smart Disaster Site Management System (SmartDSMS) to help bring control to disaster recovery operations.

The system is a major component that meets the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 5 and 8 for management of domestic incidents and national preparedness. SuperComs distributor, Identiphoto Company, Ltd., instrumented the sale to the City of Columbus. SmartDSMS, a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for access control and personnel tracking, will be deployed in stages beginning May 2005. It is expected that the Columbus authorities will issue several thousand smart cards containing fingerprint biometrics and biographical data to first responder emergency personnel. Additional smart cards will be issued at the on-site Enrollment Center to non-enrolled personnel for access control and management at the disaster site. The system features wireless-enabled, mobile units designed for rapid installation in the field based on SuperComs patented DynaGate technology. Once deployed, these units monitor the movement of personnel through access points and facilitate 24/7, real-time communication between the command center, disaster managers and on-site forces.
