First responders need to be able to have the most amount of situational awareness of the operations they perform while not being overwhelmed by all of the information that may be made available to them. This paper presents the Rover integration and fusion platform to alleviate the fusing of multiple information sources, which may not be known prior to the beginning of an operation. Rover can aid fusing sources by providing as much contextual information which often will be forgotten when designing programs, mapping contextual information into a view in which programs and users can use, and automate well-known and designed tasks. All of this occurs while deploying Rover to first responder incident scenes without the need for an existing network infrastructure prior to an incident.
