NAPSG Foundation set to develop expanded incident symbology for ARES

June 14, 2021

NAPSG Foundation is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Cooperative Research & Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T). The goal of the CRADA is to develop an expanded set of incident symbols using the NAPSG Foundation Symbology Methodology, for use within the DHS Augmented Reality Sandtable (AReS), to be available to all public safety agencies at no cost. This CRADA is an expansion of an existing relationship between DHS S&T and NAPSG Foundation on the development of the NAPSG Foundation Symbology Methodology, which currently is available in the NAPSG Symbol Library.

NAPSG Foundation is honored to work with DHS S&T for this collaborative effort, and we know that the deliverables from this partnership will provide even greater and more effective tools for our public safety community.
