Sensor Integration and Decision Support

Project summary

The Government of Canada is developing a sensor integration and decision support system.

The sensor integration and decision support system will provide a visual representation of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats for a given region. The system takes into consideration the nature of the threat, its source, its intensity, and its speed, as well as the air temperature and wind direction. 

The project should reach final operating capability in January 2018.
