Portland Seeks Designation as First ‘Synthetic City’

Portland, OR - August 18, 2006 -
"On Friday, August 18, a group of federal, state and local officials, academics, and private sector leaders will convene on the campus of Portland State University to talk about a potential transfer of power. Under discussion is the notion that technology used to fight the war on terror abroad could soon be applied to homeland security needs…and that Portland, Oregon could be an early test-bed for such transfers.
According to the Regional Alliances for Infrastructure and Network Security (RAINS), a central player in the development of homeland defense technology solutions, the primary military technology under consideration for transfer is "synthetic city" software—a digital information platform that fuses data from a variety of real-world sources, such as 9-1-1 centers, atmospheric sensors, smart buildings, health networks, and intelligent transportation systems—then organizes and displays it all in a 3-D geographical modeling and simulation environment.
"Our military friends are going to be demonstrating some very cutting edge technology—sort of the ultimate Sim City," explained RAINS’ chairman Charles Jennings, "They’ll be displaying virtual version of the real Portland, with real-time data inside." Jennings is the CEO of Portland-based Swan Island Networks.
The "Synthetic Portland" conference brings together participants from around the country, representing all levels of government, large federal contractors and system integrators; information technology vendor companies; universities; hospitals; and various types of non-governmental service organizations.

For a moment, the drill became a test of a real-life emergency response, rather than a planned exercise to help health workers prepare for a disease outbreak. (Cont)
