Many Missions, One Solution

Communication, Coordination, and Collaboration

Using technology when responding to disasters today can be challenging. You need to focus on saving lives, property, and your community first.  Not on your technology.

COBRA is the answer. Our solution leverages 20 years of experience helping first responders and organizations SEE, UNDERSTAND, and ACT first, in daily operations and major events, from local incidents to national response by providing effective communication, coordination, and collaboration tools (C3).

Using the different tools in our C3 suite allows you to focus on what is important – saving lives, property, and your community. Take a look at these tools below. 

ALERTING

When managing a crisis it is easy to miss important and critical information. Whether in the field or the EOC information is easily missed.  

When managing a crisis, whether in the field or the EOC, it is easy to miss critical information.

With the COBRA Alerting tool users have the ability to easily send alert messages to other users, groups of users, or to an assigned position.

  • COBRA Alerting sends notifications about resource or help requests, critical information, and important information updates
  • COBRA Alerting tracks who received a message, when the message was reviewed, and if a user has not received the alert
  • COBRA Alerting sends messages in COBRA application as well as recorded voice phone calls, SMS text, and through your corporate email server

CHAT MESSAGING

COBRA provides an easier way to chat with other users without using outside chat message programs.

COBRA Chat tool allows owners to create rooms and share information with chosen user groups, or with all users, in real time. You no longer need to install new or unsupported chat programs.  Just open COBRA Chat and begin discussion.

  • COBRA CHAT comes standard. No need for additional or unsecure chat application
  • Allows all users to choose own chat group
  • Owners can decide what chat rooms to create and who can access specific chats

ROLES BASED PERMISSION

COBRA provides complete control over your data.  COBRA allows owners to assign role based permissions to users allowing them to see as much or as little information as they need based on their function in the EOC.

COBRA provides specific user roles allowing different levels of access.

  • System Administrator – This role provides specific users full access to all features of COBRA including the  COBRA Software Developer Kit (SDK).
  • Organization Administrator – This role allows users access to the Administration page where they can add users, positions, and create/edit incidents
  • Data Admin – This role allows normal user access with additional elevated access for specific approvals.
  • User Role – This role is assigned to the typical user who will access the COBRA system.
  • Read Only – This role is for users who need to view, but not add, information.
  • Contact Only – This role is for CERTs or Volunteers or Hazmat facilities POCs.

DAMAGE ASSESSMENT REPORTING

The Damage Assessment tool allows users to conduct windshield assessment reviews of post storm or incident damage and add information into the COBRA system. All data is geolocated and placed on a map allowing users to capture details of the damage including: who owns the property, whether it is insured, and the estimated value and dollar damage incurred.

Users also have the ability to add pictures, videos, pdf files, and other documents needed to provide proof of damage.

  • Tablet, Smartphone, or laptop field friendly
  • Post Incident Financial and Structural Loss Documentation
  • Instantly synchronize damage reports to your headquarters
  • Automatically geolocate information on a map
  • Attach unlimited videos and pictures to a report
  • Quickly summarize total damages from an event
  • Easily share with Excel and Google Earth export
  • Customize damage assessment settings

 

REQUEST MANAGER

The COBRA Request Manager easily assigns Resource Requests, Information Requests, Assistance Requests, and Task Requests to users or positions for rapid action. Resource requests include NIMS typing definitions, resource cost tracking, and user/position assignments. Assignees receive an alert through phone, SMS text, email, or system popup informing them of the assignment.

Requesters can:

  • Assign Request by Position or User Name
  • Set location of needed resource and display information on a map
  • Set due dates and perform historical reporting
  • Track request through the entire lifecycle of approval
  • Provide rapid priority and status changes of requests

RESOURCE TRACKING (COBRA Trackers)

COBRA uses portable tracker devices the size of an average cell phone to provide people and equipment asset tracking. COBRA Trackers track the movement of personnel and equipment resources in real time as they deploy to the incident or enter an incident hotzone. Each tracker works on the 2G cellular network and are powered by battery or USB.

COBRA Trackers  

  • Send GPS data over the 2G cellular network to the Emergency Operations Center and Incident Command Post
  • Custom assignable to vehicles who are arriving to an incident
  • Mobile enough to give to first responders entering into an incident location
  • Viewable in Google Earth
  • Optimizes deployment of response resources
  • Provides enhanced accountability
  • Available as a tailored package for vehicle fleets

CBRNE SENSOR INTEGRATION AND MONITORING

COBRA has an extensive and proven history of integrating sensors from different sensor companies and types. Using an open architecture for connecting to different systems the COBRA API allows easy ingesting of sensor data into easy to read formats in COBRA.

COBRA is sensor agnostic and works with most sensors. Examples of current deployed detectors integrated with COBRA include (but are not limited to):

  • Thermo Scientific RadEye Personal Radiation Detectors with firmware version 3
  • Thermo Scientific SPRD
  • AirSense Analytics Gas Detector Array (GDA)-2 firmware version 2.55
  • Mirion Technologies SpiR-ID firmware version 1.3.5 radiation
  • Mirion Technologies Backpack

Our COBRA API is able to provide an existing sensor network vendor with the appropriate integration points for sending data in to the COBRA system or can replace the sensor integration system with direct links from existing sensors to the COBRA system.

COBRA is particularly well-suited for multi-sensor integration and risk analysis, providing essential, timely information to support decisions made on-scene by an incident commander.

COBRA provides real time location and status information regarding sensors and automatically alerts you when a sensor alarms at any time.

COBRA DRONE

Receiving accurate and up to date images and information is critical to successful emergency management. Dynamis’ COBRA Drone tool utilize the latest in drone technology to enhance onsite incident planning, management and control. Using COBRA Drone tools operators can coordinate and operate drones throughout the incident area and broadcast that information back into the COBRA system providing unprecedented site mapping and imaging.

The COBRA Drone tool embeds drone imagery into COBRA’s GIS mapping feature, giving up to date, high quality images of the scene, assisting emergency managers and responders to better plan and distribute resources across the incident site. Drone images are also used to create full, 3D image modeling of an incident site allowing incident managers and responders to conduct full terrain analysis and planning which in turn greatly enhances site control and contingency planning.

The COBRA Drone tool also allows for capturing Personal Radiation Detector (PRD) sensors and embedding this information into the COBRA incident allowing COBRA users to safely and remotely identify hazmat sources.

Dynamis personnel are fully licensed part 107 FAA certified commercial drone operators and are ready to assist emergency management personnel and managers with the latest technology to save lives during a crisis.

  • PRD Sensor readings displayed on dashboard
  • Share PRD readings and data via mapping tools
  • Automated GPS Photo Tagging and Reporting
  • Uses cellular system to track Sensor Readings and GPS Data
  • Integrate with Threat Plume and Hazard Mapping
  • COBRA can work with Counter-Drone sensors as well
