Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System

Thursday, August 30, 2018 *Updated June 17, 2021

What is it?

The Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (ADPAAS) is the U.S. Army’s method/ process of accounting for personnel and family members after catastrophes. ADPAAS is a web-based, mil-restricted, user-friendly system that enables the Army to collect accurate and timely reports in times of emergency.

ADPAAS is maintained in accordance with a variety of Federal statutes, Department of Defense and Department of the Army regulations and policies.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

ADPAAS enhances the Army’s ability to accept accountability reporting from Soldiers, Army Civilians and Non-Appropriated Funds (NAF) employees, overseas defense contractors, and their DEERS-eligible family members following natural or man-made disasters.

It enables commanders at all levels to identify and account for those in their command affected by a disaster through consolidation of self-accounting and unit mass reporting through the ADPAAS tool.

ADPAAS allows sponsors and family members affected by a catastrophe to request assistance via a Needs Assessment Survey, which in turn helps leaders prioritize where resources and assistance is needed the most.

A new virtual ADPAAS Command Officer Representative (COR) training released by HQDA G-1 assists unit commanders.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned?

The Army will continue to improve the capabilities of the ADPAAS system. These efforts will improve the way the Army can account for 100 percent personnel within hours during a disaster.

  • Expand its current ADPAAS notification system for disasters, evacuations and exercises with the integration of the ALERT Mass Warning Notification System. Integration of ALERT will enhance the notification process and push-out live telephonic, email, and text messaging notifications for sponsors and family members during real world disasters, evacuation operations and training exercises in CONUS and OCONUS locations.

  • Develop a new ADPAAS Evacuation Operations module for 100% commanders’ visibility and accountability and tracking of all sponsors and their family members during an evacuation.

Disaster personnel accountability accuracy and timeliness will significantly increase with the integration of the following new capabilities in ADPAAS.

  • Development of ADPAAS mobile application to enable sponsors to leverage biometrics for log-in and perform same functions from smart devices and on their computers.

  • Rewrite of the ADPAAS COR and Army Family Member (AFM) Computer Based Training (CBT) for an improved user interface and an effective training suite for ADPAAS students.

Why is this important to the Army?

ADPAAS is a proven and a valuable command and control readiness tool. It increases Army preparedness, improves resiliency of America’s fighting forces, supports deployed Soldiers and reassures them about the safety of their families.
