Securboration has been selected by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to develop handheld Applications for Rapid Epidemiological Analysis (AREA). AREA will support the United States Military as it continues to expand its efforts into non-kinetic operations that emphasize Stabilization, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction Operations (SSTRO) and Humanitarian Aid / Disaster Relief Operations. To support the applications development, Securboration has assembled a team of experts from the medical community that includes professionals who have participated in disaster response missions; experts in infectious diseases, bio-terrorism, epidemics and pandemics; and authorities with detailed knowledge of the Military Health System. These experts will guide application development that is based on Securboration’s suite of content analysis products. The resulting AREA product will be handheld device applications that can provide simple, easy to use health surveillance, epidemiological analysis and forecasting capabilities.
Securboration to Develop Support for Cultural Reasoning and Ethnographic Analysis for the Tactical Environment
Securboration has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research & Development Center to develop the Multi-theory Organization and Research Framework or MORF. This effort will support the Cultural Reasoning and Ethnographic Analysis for the Tactical Environment (CREATE) by providing an analytical framework to assess vulnerability and resilience of a community with respect to disaster events. MORF will apply Securboration’s suite of content analysis tools to unstructured data sources and evaluate the vulnerability or sensitivity of a community to disaster events, as well as the community’s resilience or adaptability to cope.
