 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The E-SPONDER is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies which will provide actionable information and communication support to first responders that act during abnormal events (crises) occurring in critical infrastructures. This information will enable improved control and management, resulting in real time synchronization between forces on the ground (police, rescue, firefighters) and out-of-theater command and control centers (CC). The approach guiding the E-SPONDER project is based on the fusion of variable forms of field-derived data within a central system which will then provide information analysis and decision support applications at designated CC locations in order to provide in situ support to first responders that operate in Critical Infrastructures. Statistics show that efficient emergency system can reduce accident losses to 6%, compared with situations without emergency system . As a result, an efficient emergency system is a key to cope with all kinds of sudden events and improve safety of cities and countries. To do this, E-SPONDER will achieve the following objectives: i) Improvement of front end data collection technologies installed both on portable and fixed platforms, providing a flexible yet comprehensive coverage of the affected area; ii) this data will then be fused and analyzed to provide real-time decision support; iii) E-SPONDER will make these resources readily available to commanders through the use of easily accessible web-portals but lastly and most important it will provide significant support based on Information and Communication Technologies to the First Responders. Thus, E-SPONDER will minimize the uncertainty that characterizes crisis events, thereby limiting their scope. Once E-SPONDER elements are ready for deployment they will be integrated and extensively field tested.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

There is a need to improve crisis response operations of large-scale disasters. An EU initiative created a management system to make rescue events safer and more effective.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Minimising the danger and confusion of emergency rescue operations, via a centralised management system, would make the first responder (FR) role more effective. Both rescuers and rescuees would be safer.

With EU funding, the project 'A holistic approach towards the development of the first responder of the future' (http://www.e-sponder.eu/ (E-SPONDER)) set out to develop and demonstrate a prototype management system that optimises resources, communications and the placement of people to achieve the best operational outcome at lowest cost. Overall, the aim was to ensure that no preventable physical or psychological injury befalls any FR, or other emergency personnel, whether during the emergency or after it.

Work began with a review of the current state of the art together with an analysis of user requirements.

The architecture and design of the integrated system were defined, followed by testing of the interoperable wireless communication system.

Project members designed an e-training platform for the emerging training needs of FRs in various contexts. They also set up an initial framework of EU standardisation for common information and communication technology to assist FRs.

Three full-scale field trials simulated realistic emergencies and crises involving more than 50 FRs for each demonstration. The pilot demonstrations helped to develop and refine particular aspects of the technology.

E-SPONDER introduced an efficient emergency system for FRs on the ground to better cope with all kinds of sudden events during crises occurring in critical infrastructures or elsewhere. Performance of emergency response will be improved, and the lives of FRs and civilians will be spared.
