Hazmaster G3
HazMasterG3 is the standard next-generation CBRNE/HME decision support system deployed to all Joint Services chemical units throughout the US Military. HazMasterG3 was selected after a rigourous requirements analysis and capability assessment performed by JPEO-CBD and validated by third party contractors. Below are just some of the reasons why HazMasterG3 has replaced legacy systems throughout the US Military, NATO and civilian agencies:
Comprehensive Integrated CBRNE/IED/HME Decision Aid
167,000+ integrated agents make HazMasterG3® the most comprehensive decision aid available. At Alluviam, we’re disrupting the status quo of what’s expected from a decision support system. With 167,000+ materials and trade names, HazMasterG3’s core database is much larger than any other comparable legacy decision support system – because you can’t get an answer if you don’t have the data.HazMasterG3 delivers actionable insights – when and where you need them, whether on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or net-centric environment. The experts people rely on choose to rely on HazMasterG3. Not because they were directed to use it or just because everyone else uses it.

First Responder Support Tools (FiRST)
The FiRST application was developed in partnership with the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate’s (NPPD) Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP) along with its Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP), and Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA). The FiRST app provides information directly to first responders on their smartphones or laptop computers in order to quickly define safe distances to cordon-off around a potential bomb location, calculate rough damage and injury contours, suggest appropriate roadblocks, determine when mandatory evacuation or shelter-in-place circumstances apply, and to identify nearby areas of particular concern: schools, hospitals, care centers. The application also provides the geospatial information regarding potential injury, glass, or structural damage impact area.
The FiRST application also includes HAZMAT response information based on the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) which includes information on over 3,000 hazardous materials. In addition to providing health precautions and response guidance, FiRST also retrieves current and forecast weather to show downwind protection zones for over 600 materials that are inhalation hazards.
