Context for IRWIN development

    • Wildland Fire I&T
  • What is IRWIN?
  • Current development phase
  • Development timeline
  • Q&A
wildland fire information technology wfit

MOU final signature August 1, 2012

  • Harris Sherman – USDA Under Secretary – Natural Resources and Environment
  • Rhea Suh – DOI Assistant Secretary – Policy, Management and Budget
  • Concurrence:
    • Chief, USFS; Directors – BIA, BLM, FWS, NPS, USGS; Administrator – US Fire Administration
Wildland Fire Information & Technology (WFIT)
so what does that mean

Interdepartmental process for managing Wildland Fire I&T investments

Emphasis on Wildland Fire Business driving I&T solutions and services

Solutions are interoperable and interconnected

Reduce complexity to users

So what does that mean?
special focus areas

National Computer Aided Dispatch

    • Task team chartered
    • Fast track effort – recommended solution by mid-FY14
    • Reviewing previous work (2008 Dispatch Study, etc)
    • Validating, updating business requirements
      • A CAD needs to do “this” because…
      • Dispatch and management perspectives
      • Consideration of overall IT portfolio capabilities
    • Considering national standards or a single application
Special focus areas

Data Management Program

    • Charter being developed
    • Tasked with managing data across all applications
    • Includes review of historical fire occurrence data, aka Final Fire Reports
    • Identification of Authoritative Data Sources
    • Management of Data Element and Geospatial Data Layer Standards
  • Goal: Simplify data entry and maintenance requirements for the field while providing more consistent, timely, and reliable data
Special focus areas
what is irwin

Integrated Reporting of Wildland-Fire Information

    • Reduce redundant data entry
    • Increase data consistency
    • Provide authoritative operational data
    • Speed access to data in diverse source systems
  • Chartered by DOI and USDA FS
    • DOI is the managing agency
  • “Black Box” – orchestrates data exchange between applications
What is IRWIN?
development

Five systems prototyped

    • WildCAD (Refresh & CAD Integration Server)
    • FireCode
    • WFDSS
    • Sit209 (Updated)
    • Enterprise Geospatial Portal (EGP)
Development
cad wildcad as prototype

When used, CAD is expected to be the Authoritative Data Source for basic incident data

    • Fire Name, Discovery Date/Time, Initial Location, etc
  • CADs will need a mechanism to submit initial incident data to IRWIN and/or request a FireCode
    • “Get FireCode” button
  • Conflict Resolution – surfaced to dispatcher for resolution upon detection
    • Example criteria:6hrs, ½ mile, not from the same center

firecode wfdss sit209

FireCode

    • Goal is to request and receive a FireCode without leaving the CAD
    • All FireCode required data must originate in the CAD
  • WFDSS/Sit209
    • Incident data from IRWIN will be used to create new records using a drop down list in the application
FireCode, WFDSS, Sit209
enterprise geospatial portal egp

New FS application being developed with IRWIN

  • Provides a geospatial presentation of IRWIN data
  • Will present a map interface for Conflict Resolution
  • Provides a Common Operating Picture
  • Role based views: Incident, regional, national, executive summary, public
Enterprise Geospatial Portal (EGP)
irwin potential impacts issues

Standardization of data across applications

    • Do we all really know what Location means at any point in time?
      • Initial location, updated location, final “Point of Origin”
  • Does every system need the location data?
  • What are the implications if only the ADS has that data element?
IRWIN potential impacts & issues
current development timeline

Development of IRWIN Database and exchange capabilities underway

    • User Acceptance Testing planned for Fall 2013
    • Production (Go Live) planned for Spring 2014
  • Identifying next applications for prototyping in 2013
    • Additional CADs, ROSS, weather, NWCG Unit IDs, etc
  • Repeat this basic process of prototyping, development and implementation of 4-7 applications each year through 2017
