Solutions Built for You

Our expert development team has the knowledge and experience to work with your team to build custom solutions to fit your needs, below are a few examples.


Authority to Survive and Operate (ATSO)

Initially designed for Air Force Installations based on the AFPAM N-100 Airman’s Manual to respond and recover after an attack or natural disaster, this powerful web based toolset also meets the needs of civilian First Responders when dealing with incidents such as Active Shooter, Hazmat Spill, Bomb Threat, Campus Security, Casualty Management, Unit Control Centers, Contamination from Agents, UXO Threats, Enemy / Active Shooter Threats, Damage Reporting and more.

ATSO allows users to create color coded “zones” within an area, like a school campus, sports stadium, or military installation. ATSO facilitates dispatching and tracking of response teams to survey and clear those zones. ATSO can be used for Operational Readiness Exercises and Inspections.

Based on AFPAM 10-100 Airman’s Manual

Incident and Crisis Management System (Kingdom of Belgium)

The nation of Belgium chose COBRA as their Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) Crisis Information Management System to implement their nationwide Incident & Crisis Management System (ICMS). COBRA is used to track, document, and share crisis information associated with daily operations, special events, planning scenarios, exercises, and major crisis.


Belgium uses COBRA as it’s single national repository for all emergency management related information. The system has 1,200 jurisdictions, 2,500 organizations, 4,000 active users accounts, and 60,000 emergency management related contacts. In addition, Belgium gives access to the system so each jurisdiction receives access to COBRA for managing their emergency management plans, exercise plans, After Action Reports (AARs), planning scenarios, national GIS layers, national vulnerable/critical facility layers, hospital bed status information, and more.

This program requires COBRA to display critical and vulnerable facilities on a map, allow agencies to upload and manage personal GIS map layers, allow up to 60,000+ users to access and update contact information, share information between local communities and Federal users, support four different languages (French, Dutch, German, and English), integrate with military/federal map servers using WMS feeds, and include custom crisis response forms.



Brazil Army Command, Control and Reconnaissance System for High Visibility Events

The Brazil Army Command (BAC) Army Centro Tecnologico do Exercito (CTEX) chose COBRA in 2012 as their Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) internet based solution to effectively track and monitor chemical and radiological sensor data during large scale High Visibility Events (HVEs) at 13 venues across Brazil.


Using COBRA, the client connected over 2,000 COTS chemical and radiological sensors and display sensor data into a Geographic Information System (GIS) driven Common Operating Picture (COP) dashboard. These sensors are carried by CTEX soldiers and security personnel and wirelessly send information back to regional and national EOCs through mobile phones and other wireless networks. Information from these sensors is sent to COBRA where users in the EOC are notified if a sensor reading goes above a preset alarm threshold. Alarms are noted as a color change on the sensor dashboard and through updates to the COP map.

Brazil uses COBRA for all their HVEs including the 2012 Rio+20 United Nations Conference, the 2013 Pope’s visit, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games and for all HVE planning, training, and exercises. Information in COBRA is translated from English to Portuguese to meet the BAC requirement of a Portuguese language product.

Crisis Negotiation

COBRA supports Hostage Negotiation Teams (HNT) through a number of robust software tools. Using the many tools in the COBRA, Crisis / Hostage Negotiation teams have the ability to build situation awareness of complex hostage and barricade incidents.

Using COBRA, HNT members have the ability to view and share information between primary and secondary team members. Only important information can be fed to Primary team members by Secondary team members through shared tools and avoiding confusion.

  • Using the Map Tool, HNT members can visualize the surrounding area including suspect position, law enforcement locations, hostage locations, and other critical information to make informed decisions
  • Information is added using mobile, tablet, or laptop devices
  • Information is captured in real time and saved for later review allowing for effective review of the situation and reporting purposes
  • Important historical information such as suspect background, family, and connections can be added in the attachments tool or the document library for repeat offenders

COBRA Software Development Kit

The COBRA SDK allows clients the ability to build their own custom tools, forms, and templates using industry standard web application frameworks such as ASP.NET, C#, JAVA, PHP, and other common frameworks. The SDK is an expert-level tool, requiring an experienced software developer or engineer who is familiar with these frameworks. The SDK provides the ability to directly customize COBRA by building tools and integrating these tools with the rest of the COBRA platform.

The COBRA SDK is designed to exist within a secure Development and Testing environment, separate from the COBRA servers. Once appropriate testing and validation of the customization is completed, either directly by the client or by the COBRA development team, the custom content can be installed into the COBRA server hosting their specific system.
