Obama to announce plan to respond to bioterrorism

This announcement is further proof that we need to leverage and integrate existing and planned applications and decision support tools to provide early detection and management of incidents involving biological and chemical threat agents.  Pangaea has existing systems (GUARDIAN and JICS) that address these needs and could serve as integral surveillance and management tools to ensure that we are able to quickly detect potential incidents and support intelligent management decisions which will help to minimize the impact and more importantly, save lives.
