GAITHERSBURG, Md. — The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the winners of the final phase of the Command Dashboard Integrating Next-Gen Technology (CommanDING Tech) Challenge, a four-phase competition for designing next-generation incident command dashboards for first responders.

Many incident command dashboards are limited by the quality of their user interfaces and an inability to access certain types of data. The CommanDING Tech Challenge aimed to incentivize the creation of new dashboards with improved user interface/user experience (UI/UX) designs that incorporate video, sensor, and map data, as well as real-time indoor tracking and video analytics, using mobile and web-based solutions.
