Will increase EU overall resilience and effectiveness in cross-border disasters with multiple victims by enhancing transnational and cross-sectorial trust among different players and in their interaction with data-driven technologies.
The integration of the harmonized solutions will constitute the SIGRUN platform, providing advanced communications, information sharing and tactical C&C services for the first-aid responders.
Four use cases will be developed on cross-frontier and cross-sectorial BLOS (Beyond Line of Sight) scenarios, where the usual communications infrastructure could have been damaged, and emergency response teams are deployed without an accurate view of the operation environment.
During the VALKYRIES Project, a series of use cases and demonstrators will be developed placing an emphasis on cross-frontier and cross-sectorial BLOS (Beyond Line of Sight) scenarios, where the usual communications infrastructure could have been damaged, and emergency response teams are deployed without an accurate view of the operation environment.
The European continent is surrounded by seawater, ranging from Black Sea and Mediterranean in the south and east to North Sea and Artic oceans in the north and west. In all these areas there are heavy traffic of passenger ferries/cruise, cargo boat and oil tankers. An accident with one or more ships in open sea will nearly always involve a range of different operations like rescue people, prevent oil-spill, secure values and so on. Most likely, there will be several different countries involved. Rescue operations and oil spill collection require cooperation between national authorities in different countries and a range of organizations like the coast guard, military rescue units, civil rescue units and the national rescue centres when people are involved. In the case of environmental issues like oil spill, typical organization operating collection equipment will be applied together with privately operated vessels.
