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.
Since the VALKYRIES project aims at exploring the impact of the emerging technologies, procedures and collaboration tools for supporting the actuation of the first aid responders on cross-border disasters and major crisis situations, three work streams and a reference integration will be developed:
Technologies and Equipment for first aid responders
Procedures and Operation for first aid responders
Collaboration and Training for first aid responders
A reference integration of disruptive enablers on legacy solutions will be conducted driven by real requirements and needs highlighted by the Consortium’s end-users and practitioners, being presented at real cross-border demonstrations. The main aim is to provide a real use case driven implementation that allow applying the proposed normalizations on some of the discovered technological (KARA), procedural (HERJA) and collaborative and training (EIR) opportunities. The project outcomes will motivate and incentive cross-border and cross-sectorial collaboration, participating in the preparedness persons involved in the disaster management activities, supporting the orchestration of volunteering actions, bringing capabilities for enhancing the effectiveness of the EMS units while increasing their security, and once the crisis is stabilized, contributing to the recovery and post-response analytical actions
