Powered for Patients was honored to have been selected by the Department of Homeland Security in September 2018 as one of ten innovative research and development programs as part of the DHS 2018 National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) Security & Resilience Challenge.
As part of its NIPP Security & Resilience Challenge project, Powered for Patients and its project partner Talus Analytics created a prototype that harnesses Fault Detection & Diagnostic (FDD) technology to provide real time alerts to designated government and utility personnel when emergency power is threatened in a critical facility during a power outage.
These real time alerts will enable accelerated response by government in forestalling the loss of emergency power through deployment of temporary generators, generator fuel or other assets. For utilities, this early warning could enable a shift in restoration priorities to restore utility power prior to the loss of emergency power.
The success of this project was due to the active engagement of many stakeholders across government, healthcare, and private industry.
