Elected Officials > Communication Assets & Mapping (CASM) Tool Communication Assets & Mapping (CASM) Tool

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has targeted interoperable communications as a national priority. Fortunately, the issue has been on Indiana's agenda for several years, so the state is well positioned in terms of providing a system for statewide interoperable communications.

Indiana is using a US Department of Homeland Security/Office of Emergency Communications (DHS/OEC) sponsored tool to effectively analyze public safety communications equipment data, identify interoperability gaps in communications plans and collaborate on solutions for improvement. The Communication Assets Survey and Mapping (CASM) tool is a standardized collection method for emergency response agencies to store and visually display data about their public safety communications assets and how those assets are used. CASM provides:

  • A single repository for information about land mobile radio systems, methods of interoperability and how they are used by emergency responders.
  • A means to display the data.
  • Tools to analyze the data and visualize interoperability gaps in accordance with the SAFECOM Interoperability Continuum framework.

For more about the CASM tool or to request access, contact Sally Fay.
