• Rapid Response Institute Video

    The Rapid Response Institute was established to leverage Monmouth University's modeling, simulation, and software engineering research to provide rapid-response capabilities for any homeland security, homeland defense, and/or natural or man-made event in support of the first responder community by enabling early identification of biological, chemical, and radiological attacks; coordinating responses to such attacks across various local, state, federal, and tribal organizations; and creating a national model for a rapid-response capability to a bioterrorist attack, communicable disease threat, or catastrophic disaster. The Institute is leveraging the core capabilities of University faculty, students, and visiting scientists to meet the goals of the program. The Institute has already delivered four systems specifications and three prototype visualization systems to the United States Army regarding bioterrorism and emergency management.
