Dates and times:
Overflight Preparation Workshop (agenda):
Tuesday, October 21, 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

The overflight workshop’s goal was to understand the Mission Tasking process and define the Clearinghouse needs and requirements in order to be able to draft pre-scripted Mission Tasks for various Areas of Interest (AOI) before the next large earthquake on the southern San Andreas Fault system.

Presentations (PowerPoint slides are linked below when used by speaker):

Cal OES/EF-1 Air Coordination Group (Derek Kantar, Caltrans Aeronautics)
Air Guard (Lt. Colonel Keegan, Cpt. Megan Stromberg, SFC Jeffrey Fuller)
Army Guard (MAJ Dan Anderson, by phone)
California Highway Patrol (Sgt. Spencer Ammons, Fullerton Air Unit)
NASA JPL UAVSAR (Scott Hensley)

Information Collection Discussion (agenda):
Wednesday, October 22, 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

The workshop on October 22nd was a discussion rather than an exercise. The Clearinghouse mission is to share information and maximize its availability. In support of this mission, the workshop focused on concepts related to the fast and planned orchestration of data into easily distributed and understood products containing Essential Elements of Information that support decision making e.g. the need for post-earthquake information, how it is collected by various organizations, and how information can be organized to make it easy for other organizations to find, access, and most importantly, to use. Clearinghouse partners, as well as partners from FEMA Region 9, CAL OES, California National Guard, and the southern California earthquake community and local response organizations, provided briefings on their information requirements and capabilities. Different ways to analyze data and create decision support products that will be useful to various organizations were discussed, with the goal of participating organizations to think about the products and concepts to be integrated into plans for participating in the May 2015 exercise.
