DCDS is a web-based command & control system for small to large to extreme scale incidents that facilitates collaboration across Federal, Tribal, Military, State, County, & Local/Municipal levels of preparedness, planning, response, and recovery for all-risk/all-hazard events. DCDS facilitates situational awareness for widely dispersed responders.

DCDS is:
* Based upon Open standards
* Non-proprietary: Not vendor owned; this is a community development project
* Always improving: Like the Web, DCDS will never be done; it will always be improved and adapted by the community
* Aimed at the "Tired–Dirty–Hungry": Carefully designed for the responder under extreme stress
* Focused on scalability: Technology for small to large to extreme scale incidents

DCDS provides collaboration and communication capabilities across all echelons of responders; it enhances the quality and accessibility of sensor data; and it integrates location data for resources, vehicles, and personnel. During an incident, DCDS provides an information backbone that manages and distributes data, including real-time vehicle location feeds, weather, critical infrastructure, and terrain information.
