This thesis will focus on field testing and evaluating the capabilities of a smartphone-based system and associated equipment for "First Responder Networking." Further, we will identify information sharing requirements for supporting a medical triage tasking during mass casualty and humanitarian operations. These requirements will be implemented, tested and evaluated against the capabilities of the TwiddleNet system for passing/sharing of patient information and records, in the form of text, photos and voice, rapidly disseminated to those involved with the Mobile Emergency Command Post unit and the Joint Operations Command Center. This will facilitate communication via synchronized backhaul or satellite communiqueÌ from the disaster site to other medical facilities across a globally distributed network. For example, land based military medical units, naval hospital ships, stateside medical centers via tele-medicine, etc. The applicability of these efforts to the DoD will be specifically tested via integrated mass casualty/triage scenarios and simulated humanitarian operations.
