Zach is a Senior Undergraduate student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute expecting to graduate in May 2013 with a CSYS/CSCI Dual Major. He is interested in finding and solving interesting problems in Computer Science with the First Responders project at the Tetherless World Constellation. "I want to learn as much as possible so that I can develop a broad sense of solving problems through academic research."

Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: John S. Erickson
Description: The purpose of this project is to design and prototype a requirements-gathering methodology driven by the first responders community. The methodology will include examining the current state of collecting and synthesizing responder requirements, assessing the effectiveness of that process, evaluating existing candidate platforms for use within this community, and producing a roadmap that can be used by NIST and others to achieve a solution enabling the responder community to more effectively dialogue with key stakeholders. A prototype implementation of the methodology will be developed using the roadmap and will be available for testing and evaluation and requirements gathering.
