Hostage Rescue Team Quick Capture Platform Use Case Document



Brian Stanton, Yee-Yin Choong, Mary Theofanos


The document defines functional requirements for the Quick Capture Platform (QCP). These requirements have been developed for a portable hardware device with screen size as small as 5"(W)x3"(H). Functional requirements are the definitions of specific features or services in which the system must provide a response. The document contains complete definitions, in the format of use cases, of all the functional requirements gathered. The document describes only the functionality of a user interface (UI) for the QCP application. Functions and features that are in support of the UI and how the QCP application processes the data depicted by the UI will be assumed, but not described in the document.
