The Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment (EDGE) is a multiplayer, scalable, online training environment that allows trainees to simulate a coordinated response to critical incidents, such as an active shooter on campus. Developed by  the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and the Army Research Lab, the platform allows responders of all disciplines to assume discipline-based avatars and simultaneously role-play complex response scenarios. Bob Walker, Cole Engineering Services EDGE Program Manager, will give background information on the EDGE virtual training program and demonstrate the simulation for attendees.
