Director: Dr. Robin Murphy
Main Mission: Research
Brief Description: Our mission is to provide the dedicated, sustained, comprehensive focus needed to leverage advances in unmanned systems, wireless networks, computing, decision-making, simulation and visualization, social networking, and other technologies. A systems approach will advance the field of emergency informatics to save lives, accelerate damage assessment, and reduce economic downtime while developing a competent future work force. The goal of the CEI academic, response agency, and industry partnership is to research, commercialize, and use information technologies to cut response and recovery decision making times in half for Type I (large) incidents in 5 years and reduce deaths and downtime by an order of magnitude within 10 years
