3-D Emergency Response App Tested by SWAT

An App that has been in development for four years at the University of North Carolina Charlotte to locate and guide emergency personnel was successfully tested by a SWAT team in a training exercise on Friday. The App tracks officers in buildings in three dimensions and sends data by Wi-Fi to tracking computers on campus.

Ribarsky said the one-of-a-kind technology will assist law enforcement during emergencies. "We are definitely breaking ground," he said. "The app is unique and a leader in developing 3-D models."
