DR-NEP: helping disaster responders make better decisions

Subject:  Disaster Response Network Enabled Platform The Disaster Response Network Enabled Platform can help to save lives around the world by modeling a community’s response to a nature disaster. The platform simulates multiple systems such as: the power network, the electrical network and telecommunications network. All of these systems depend very strongly on each other in normal life but this interdependence is even more evident during large disasters. For example, imagine that, after an earthquake, there is not enough energy from both the hospital and the water pumping station. A decision must be made about how to split the power.
