The Just-In-Time Command and Control Center (JITC3) is an Augmented Reality (AR) and mobile computing based system for improving Situational Awareness during urban emergency response operations. The JITC3 system integrates both synchronous and asynchronous location-specific information updates from field responders carrying GPS-enabled SmartPhones, allowing the JITC3 AR equipped coordinator to view and manipulate relevant information in a coherent urban and geospatial workspace augmented by images, audio and text.
