Bringing Technology and Technical Expertise Together to Help First Responders

CSS served as the bridge between computer developers and the scientific community during the creation of a Radiation Decontamination application. We organized and completed three testing sessions with 60 users to gather input on a proposed radiation response software application. We also supported the conversation between EPA and scientific community on how radiological dose is handled and determined. After collecting, organizing, and reviewing the input, we guided the computer programmers to help them update or modify information and correct problems.  The resulting app is easily accessible, simple to use, and technically accurate.
