Complete with dispatch of emergency response to events or incidents based upon the closest available resources, CAD To CAD provides a secure and seamless exchange of information between multiple disparate CAD systems and other applications.

 KOLOGIK CAD-to-CAD interoperability networks helped cut San Diego’s 911-response time in half!  Without emergency response, a heart victim’s chance of survival decreases by an alarming 10% per minute.


Diane McClarty, ENP, Director for Heartland Communications Facility Authority, Greater San Diego Area and Administering Agent for the San Diego Regional CAD Interoperability Program (RCIP) for CAD-to-CAD.

"As a leader in Public Safety Interoperable Communications, the San Diego Regional CAD Interoperability Program (RCIP) has achieved the innovative and technological solutions to better serve our citizens and public safety agencies who protect the lives, homes, and businesses in our communities.

The RCIP has enabled “seamless dispatching” of millions of emergency incidents to be automatically and bi-directionally shared for responses within dissimilar CAD 9-1-1 systems at multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional Communication Centers.  Regionally, the RCIP allows us to effectively drop the borders between jurisdictions and agencies to expedite the quickest response and closet available resources to events by sharing units, location, status, and incident data. The results have effectively decreased the response time to the emergencies which can raise the overall survivability rate and lower the damage and cost for small and large scale events.

The RCIP uses the Kologik CAD-to-CAD Interoperability Platform for regional situational awareness to share and synchronize critical incident information in real-time for coordinated response among neighboring public safety systems at our Centers. The San Diego Region with the Kologik team has delivered a premier state-of-the-art CAD2CAD data exchange framework that optimizes day-to-day operations while scaling  up to large transaction volumes and remaining flexible to ever-changing business rules. The RCIP greatly benefits our citizens, businesses, first responders, dispatchers and participating agencies through collaboration and interoperable response.

We are proud of the RCIP and for what we have achieved for the San Diego Region and for Public Safety." said McClarty.


How It Works

CAD-to-CAD allows agencies across multiple jurisdictions to operate on their own systems, according to their own requirements and practices, while allowing the seamless, selective exchange and sharing of data.


  • Create, forward and collaborate on Calls For Service

  • Regional situational awareness with closest available unit dispatching

  • Consolidate across agencies while maintaining jurisdictional controls and policies

  • Retain existing systems and standard operating procedures

  • AVL integration across agencies for regional mapping

  • Common Regional Operating Picture (CROP) situational mapping

  • Increase personnel productivity and reduce response times

  • Respect of existing cross-agency agreements

  • API integration using web services
