Project Summary

The Search and Rescue project will design, implement and test through a series of large scale pilot scenarios a highly interoperable, modular open architecture platform for first responders capitalising on expertise and technological infrastructure from both COncORDE and IMPRESS FP7 projects. The governance model of Search and Rescue will be designed to operate more effectively and its architectural structure will allow to easily incorporate next generation R&D and COTS solutions which will be possibly adopted in the future disaster management systems. The Model will also support a unified vision of the EU role and will provide a common framework to assess needs and integrate responses. The framework will enable supportive approach using a wider range of decisional support features and monitoring systems and will also give to first responders an effective and unified vision of (a) the dynamic changes going on during event’s lifetime and (b) the capabilities and resources currently deployed in the field.
