We are an industry leading startup helping firefighters to focus rescue operations through situation-aware building infrastructures and real-time IoT analytics.
NGEMS is designed to operate with existing safety devices and fire panels. We analyze this data during an emergency and correlate it to digitized floor layouts. The visualization is then sent to dispatch centers and directly to on-site first responders. This information, once only accessible upon entering the building, is now available the instant a dispatch center is notified.
Our custom software can be installed on existing wireless access points to enhance NGEMS’s situational awareness. Scanning radio frequencies, we are able to locate connected devices and active RFID badges in order to correlate those signals to personnel location.
NGEMS is designed from the ground up to take advantage of the newest advancements in the emergency response ecosystem. This includes FirstNET, the US’s first nation-wide disaster and emergency network.
Our Iot analytics platform works in the cloud to process information normally unavailable to first responders until they arrive on the scene. With NGEMS, these details are right at their fingertips allowing an appropriate response from dispatch centers and granting situational awareness to fire personnel.
A specialized hardware installation scans radio frequencies (WiFi, Bluetooth, RFID), enabling people-localization through their wireless devices. This allows first responders to focus their rescue efforts and maximize operational effectiveness.
How it works
Monitor data from available sensors.
Using smoke detectors, fire panels, or installed IoT devices, we monitor all available signals and data to make NGEMS as site-aware as possible.
Collect and process in the cloud
Utilizing both commercial and emergency networks, we transmit the data to the cloud to create real-time actionable information.
Visualize and map the Data
We visualize this information and combine it with digitized floor plans so it is easily and quickly understandable to emergency personnel.
Make available to dispatchers and first responders
When crisis strikes, our visualizations are accessed through a specialized application and made available to the necessary local authorities.

We are a group of NYU graduates working on a platform to assist rescue operations during emergency and disaster mitigation. The project is called N-GEMS: Next Generation Emergency Systems. We utilize currently installed emergency devices to gain a real-time understanding of building conditions. We pair that with building-installed and drone-attached modules that locate people's wireless devices through radio frequency triangulation. Along with digitized floor plans, a specialized cloud-based software application takes this information and converts it into a visual format for emergency personnel, showing them the floor and section where people and hazards are located.
Our team is varied and multidisciplinary, consisting of both foreign nationals and US veterans. We have different backgrounds, our knowledge of safety device development and procurement increases everyday as we take N-GEMS beyond its infancy.
