  • Abstract:
    The Capital Area Wireless Integrated Net (CapWIN) is comprised of first responder agencies in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Through the use of the CapWIN application, responders are able to:

    1. Exchange messages with other users at roadside locations or at fixed facilities such as dispatch centers directly without having to transmit messages through a third party,(i.e., roadside to dispatch to other agency/other roadside unit).

    2. Directly access and exchange information with databases such as Maryland Interagency Law Enforcement System

    (MILES), Washington Area Law Enforcement System (WALES), and Virginia Criminal Information Network (VCIN), instead of relying on a third party to conduct the exchange.

    3. Access the CapWIN V2 online directory. The directory allows users to search the profiles of other users and locate their contact information. In addition, the directory can also be used to search the capabilities or skill-sets (i.e., Spanish speaking, crash investigator) of other users.

    4. Establish real-time incident message reports/dialogues that can be accessed by all end users. The incident message reports enable users to post incident description/location, request on-scene help, upload incident photos, etc.

    The system is also designed to handle multiple users on a concurrent basis and to accommodate multiple platforms or operating systems. Additional system features include: seamless integration between multiple databases; chat and instant messaging capabilities; secured access and password-protected sign on; flexible input devices including keyboard, touch

    screen, WIN/PEN, and PDA, etc.; dynamic screens; built-in data integrity checks; and wireless electronic data transfer.
