Summary
Abstract: State and local health officials face a wide range of challenges from DUI and tobacco-related illnesses to environmental and infectious diseases. To meet these challenges, officials require dynamic information on the illnesses and conditions within their jurisdiction. NASA Mission assets offer a significant contribution to meeting these challenges by measuring and monitoring environmental and atmospheric conditions that relate directly and indirectly to public health.

Realizing this contribution requires ingest of relevant environmental and atmospheric measurements into RSVP that are scientifically sound and rigorously tested. However, to assess the value of NASA contributions requires integrating historical and real-time health data with data on the environmental conditions affecting public health. RSVP currently provides real-time syndromic monitoring and analysis capabilities. The goal of this project is to extend these capabilities to include environmental and atmospheric information relevant to selected zoonotic and respiratory illnesses. This will be accomplished by ingesting NASA data sets and derivative products into RSVP, and serving the resulting Decision Support System over the Internet to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and to state and local public health officials in forms they can interpret and respond to quickly.
