The REmote Sensing Planning Tool (RESPT) is under development as part of a Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate (DHS/S&T) project at the University of South Carolina. RESPT is a web-based decision support tool guiding hazards managers in the process of acquiring and analyzing remotely sensed imagery for a hazard event. The intelligence subsystem will use the GIS-based modeling subsystem and satellite query subsystem to automatically determine optimum sensors/satellites for the hazard requirements, geographic study area, and time frame (e.g., 3 days). The user of this system will also be able to independently query the current and future locations and collection abilities of any unclassified satellite-borne sensor. Currently, DHS S&T has funded the development of an airborne component to enable the coordination and utilization of airborne assets for emergency response. This capability is expected to be operational by the summer of 2013.
