Charles F. Day and Associates, LLC Sponsors Pandemic Flu Modeling Demonstration
Date:10/8/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 6th & 7th, Charles F. Day & Associates LLC sponsored H1N1 pandemic modeling/decision aid software demonstrations for Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel. The demonstrations were conducted by researchers from Purdue University's Visualization and Analytics Center for DHS and DOD personnel at both the US Army Software Engineering Group's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Test Bed facility at Picatinny, NJ as well as at the National Defense University Information Resource Management College, Washington, DC.

Purdue, with a network of affiliated universities, is the DHS Center of Excellence for Command, Control, and Interoperability in Visualization Sciences. The software demonstrated performs predictive modeling of pandemic spread and hospital bed requirements down to the county level for planning and decision making support. The software takes into account factors such as social distancing initiatives, media effects, and release and use of the Strategic National Stockpile of vaccines. It allows for manipulation of parameters so that users can model expected progression based on actual experience in their area. This demonstration was the first phase of a larger Critical Infrastructure Modeling effort.

Dr. Day commented: "There are great technologies coming out of universities and centers of research that are critically important to our nations' health providers. We are glad to be able to sponsor demonstrations of this important work by Purdue University." Charles F. Day & Associates, LLC is a Hub Zone and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business headquartered in Davenport, IA, providing program management and acquisition logistics services, primarily within the DOD.
