Demonstration of the WildfireDLN Data Ferry System

PSCR2020 Demo of the WildfireDLN Data Ferry SystemTech Demo
PSCR2020 Demo of the WildfireDLN Data Ferry SystemTech Demo
We will show the functionality of our prototype data ferry system designed to improved delivery of geospatial data during wildland fire incidents. The ferry system consists of a base station and portable ferries that can be deployed as needed to efficiently deliver large data files to locations outside of regularly connected locations. The demo will include a review of the process to upload data based on user-defined policies and deliver the data, including a show-and-tell of a larger ferry (with more data capacity) and a smaller ferry (used where light-weight deployment is needed.)
