Standardization of situational Awareness sYstems to Strengthen Operations in civil protection

Neuer Inhalt

Handling the crises faced by modern societies often requires the coordination of multiple types of stakeholders from different countries. One of the key requirements to manage crisis is to have access to Situational Awareness (SA). However, current Situational Awareness Solutions (SAS) are not adapted to operate in cross-border contexts and present several shortcomings related to interoperability, data management and processing, decision making, standardisation, and procurement. This hinders reliable sharing of situational awareness information.

SAYSO will address these shortcomings and pave the way for the development of innovative European cost-effective Multi-Stakeholders Situational Awareness Systems (MSSAS), which will provide civil protection practitioners with user-friendly systems through all phases of emergency response, analysing hazards and uncertainties associated with the disaster site, providing a clear picture of the situation at hand with relevant advices.
