SAR Management System

SAR Vessel Tracking
The SAR Management System (SMS) is a component of PawPrint´s XDe specifically designed to track all aspects involved in a Marine based SAR organization. The system is entirely web based to provide secured access to personnel from all areas of the organization: from SAR crews to office administrators.

It combines intelligent tracking of SAR missions, training, units, personnel, vessels, equipment, activities, expense claims, requests, and administrative data across an entire region in a database with dynamic links to other data sources (RCC) and endless potential for growth.

The SMS was initially developed for the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary - Pacific (CCGA-P) as a pilot project by to help eliminate a cumbersome paper flow and streamline their organization. Development began in March of 2005 and continued for over a year before the system was placed into production in parallel with their paper workflow in January of 2006. As of August 2006 the CCGA-P stopped processing paper forms entirely.

The SMS comprises over 30,000 lines of code and is the product of over 500 hours of development time. It continues to grow through the efforts of and via the input of the CCGA-P

It is estimated that the SMS saved over 1000 hours of volunteer time, and at least 1000 long distance fax calls in it´s first 6 months of operation. Producing never before possible real time reporting and tracking.
