SUMMARY: Research and Experimentation for Local and International First Responders (RELIEF) met 5-9 May 2013 at Camp Roberts in Paso Robles, CA. The focus of this round of field explorations was on building solutions to lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy for FEMA in conjunction with DHS Science and Technology Directorate (DHS/S&T), who funded the event. RELIEF brought together DoD, FEMA, DHS, as well as private sector technology companies active in disaster response.
This paper presents a digest of a much longer document, the RELIEF 13-03 AAR, published by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). Descriptions of each experiment can be found in this comprehensive document, including experiments that were cancelled (which have been omitted here). All the technical information about experiments—including their designs, hypotheses, and quantitative/qualitative results—are published in the longer NPS RELIEF 13-03 Report. This document provides a thematic summary of the field explorations and its implications.
