ARA’s expertise in physiological and computational modeling, research, development, and design ensure human aspects of systems respond effectively to unexpected demand. With these skills we develop flexible, adaptive, and advanced planning and response solutions.

Our experience with CBRNE modeling and emergency management operations allow us provide simple yet powerful tools to assist first-responders in emergency situations. Our development of response support tools and applications has optimized how emergency response teams handle a variety of scenarios.

ARA’s First Responder Support Tools (FiRST) and the legacy HazMat Evac tool are prime examples of our capability to produce innovative and effective emergency planning options. Both of these tools feature abilities such as incident data sharing and utilization of GPS, interactive maps, and informative displays on mobile devices.

In addition to providing support tools, ARA works with organizations to develop comprehensive disaster management plans that cover preparedness, response, and long-term and short-term recovery phases. We create emergency scenarios for explosive, fire, civil, chemical, biological, power, and weather-related calamities. These scenarios address emergency communications, necessary resources for potential hazards, and evacuation plans.
