Capstone Team Aims High for Self-Healing Swarm

Saving Time and Most Importantly, Saving Lives

Self Heal Swarm AF CyberWorx When a team of firefighters is fighting a wildfire, how can they communicate more effectively among one another and command base to best save resources, tackle their challenge, and potentially save lives? If a first responder is wounded without their medic nearby, how can resources be marshaled to help them as quickly as possible? If all cell service is lost during a natural disaster, like Hurricane Florence, how can first responders communicate with one another to get assets and personnel where they need to be?
