Operation College Freedom

On August 22nd, 2006, an MMST Disaster Drill took focused on terrorism took place at UCSD's Atkinson Hall. While first responders practiced their skills responding to urban terrorism, researchers from WIISARD (Wireless Internet Information Systems for Medical Response in Disasters) and RESCUE (Response to Crises and Unexpected Events) deployed and tested new technologies for management of mass casualty situations.

"The university campus itself was once an Army base, and military-related businesses and facilities abound in the region. San Diego is a major center for defense-related manufacturing, home to businesses that contract to the military for security applications, logistical services, unmanned aerial systems, and personnel. It is one of the primary arenas for the flows between academia, industry, and the military..." (Crandall)
