Overview[edit | edit source]
The Constellation/Automated Critical Asset Management System (C/ACAMS) is a Web-enabled information services portal that helps State and local governments build CIKR protection programs in their local jurisdictions. Specifically, C/ADAMS provides a set of tools and resources that help law enforcement, public safety, and emergency response personnel to:
- Collect and use CIKR asset data;
- Assess CIKR asset vulnerabilities;
- Develop all-hazards incident response and recovery plans; and
- Build public-private partnerships.
The Constellation portion of C/ACAMS is an information gathering and analysis tool that allows users to search a range of free and subscription reporting sources to find relevant information tailored to their jurisdiction's needs.
ACAMS is a secure, online database and database management platform that allows for: the collection and management of CIKR asset data; the cataloguing, screening, and sorting of this data; the production of tailored infrastructure reports; and the development of a variety of pre- and post-incident response plans that are useful for strategic and operational planners and tactical commanders.
