Abstract:

The Department of Homeland Security - Science and Technology Directorate ST has partnered with FEMA to investigate and assess new technologies and processes for an updated Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program HSEEP Enterprise Platform EP for operational use. HSEEP is a capabilities and performance-based exercise program which provides a standardized policy, methodology, and terminology for exercise design, development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning. An integral part of HSEEP was the development of the HSEEP Toolkit, a web-based collection of tools for exercise scheduling, design, development, evaluation and Improvement planning. The current HSEEP toolkit does not facilitate information sharing or provide a seamlessly integrated exercise support system. In order to effectively update the capabilities of this HSEEP toolkit, an exhaustive assessment was performed that focused on new system requirements translation or the new system requirements and the results of an initial operation analysis into an improved HSEEP toolkit prototype aimed at exercise support and the incorporation or science-based information and data via modeling and simulation MS capabilities into the HSEEP exercise cycle.
