Improving Information and Communications in a Disaster Scenario with AWS Snowball Edge

Published on Jun 20, 2019

Volunteers and emergency personnel carefully coordinate their response to natural disasters. This coordination requires data and making data actionable and accessible at the tactical edge remains a challenge. We'll dive into the results of our disaster response user needs study and invite Element 84 on stage to exhibit their prototype disaster response pipeline for field data management. The serverless, cloud-based pipeline combines public and private data sources with open source software. It can provide the field with a ruggedized remote data center (SBE), preloaded with critical information, including reach-back capabilities. You'll see how this works firsthand and learn ways first responders can update data from in-situ sources such as drones.
