The Emergency Support System - ESS: Concept and technology

  1. 1. An Overview of ESSIDRCDavosAugust-28, 2012Gideon HazzaniDirector of Business Development - VERINTESS Coordinator
  2. 2.  Funded by the FP7 • The largest EU foundation for research and innovation Period of 48 months (2009-2013) Grant by EU: 9.1 Million Euros
  3. 3. The coordinator:3 end users: 2 research institutes: 10 industrial organizations:
  4. 4. Random Location Stress Panic Disorder The greater the uncertainty, the moreloss of life and damage to public propertyUncertainty
  5. 5.  A portable, quickly deployable, independent, scalable, ad-hoc, theater-intelligence system for abnormal and catastrophic events • All weather • Pure visibility conditions (e.g. heavy smoke, dark) • Variety of sensors (of any vendor) Enables improved management, decision support and command and control of most crisis events: • Natural disasters (Japan Tsunami, Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Catherina) • CBRN • Forest fire (Mt. Carmel Forest Fire) • Mass riots • Terrorists attacks • Big public events (big sport games) • Other abnormal events Significant Enhancement for C4I systems
  6. 6.  Portable • Be prepared for the next catastrophic event at random location • Be prepared for known and planned big public events at different locations (e.g. big sport stadiums) Quickly Deployable for Minimizing the uncertainty • Anywhere on land Independent of Infrastructure collapse o Communication  Mechanism to communicate with the public  Autonomous wireless communication- Mesh WiFi, Satellite COM o Electricity  Autonomous power supply Scalable • Number of operated sensors according to the actual need
  7. 7.  Law enforcement (Police) Rescue forces (Red Cross, Fire Fighters) Home land security authorities Municipal authorities Environmental care authorities
  8. 8. Operational ESS
  9. 9. Aerostat Satellite Broadcast Location Weather Based Unmanned Sensor Alerts Via Air Vehicle SMS Chemical Gas Detector Flood sensor IMSI Surveillance Catcher Command Control Center Ground VehicleFirstRespondersReports GPS Tracking Human Intelligence
  10. 10.  Suite WEB based applications which create a real-time picture of the Crisis Situation Can be accessed from anywhere in the world according to agreed authorization policy Municipal Fire Department Red Cross Police
  11. 11.  Video files are uploaded to a Cloud service Windows Azure Cloud Storage Service
  12. 12.  Spatial video streaming transmitted by the video sensors (UAV, Aerostat, etc.) Videos and photos captured by first responders and citizens Fusion of TV news channel
  13. 13.  Downstream • Broadcast information and alerts to the public and/or emergency staff in the affected areas • Location based mobile dispatching of first responders Upstream • First responders reports to be popped-up at the ESS screen o Text and Video • Sensor alerts • Facebook and Twitter reports • Crowd reports („crowd Base Station intelligence‟) • Web based TV news channels
  14. 14.  Sending alerts and new instructions to all sensor operators directly from the portal • IC, Balloon, UAV, SGV Pop up message on sensor operators desktop • New Azimuth to track or observe • New Location to cover
  15. 15.  ESS trucks ESS sensors ESS command post First responders (vehicles, PDAs) Video sensors • UAV • UGS • SGV • AEROS • Smart-phone 18

  17. 17.  Driving Time of first responders to event location Effective and rapid evacuation of public Identify traffic travel time at main roads Roadblocks information Brussels Driving Time Screen ESS
  18. 18.  Real-time geographic view of mobile user density and distribution Upgraded display of the number of people located in the warm / hot zone Essential for creating a “sterilized zone” where fast mass-evacuation is required „Zoom Out‟ „Zoom In‟ 2 mobiles in the Sterilized Zone
  19. 19.  Real-time spatial estimation, forecast and 3D GIS visualization of risks and hazards such as: • Chemical spill • Radioactive radiation • Fire expansion • Floods Dependency on the wind and weather conditions Degree of risk presentation (concentration level, hot and warm zones) Variety of propagation models (ALOHA, G-FMIS and other) Chemical-Spill Fire Risk Analysis Risk Analysis Flood Risk Analysis
  20. 20.  Weather is significant parameter in catastrophic events ◦ Micro  Based on ESS meteorological sensor  Real time display of weather conditions in affected area  Wind speed and direction  Temperature  Humidity  Air pressure ◦ Macro  Enabled by import of meteorological data from external service provider (METO France)  Wide area weather online report and forecast
  21. 21.  All relevant data is recorded for: • Post event basic debriefing • Training Fast playback functionality of recorded event • Play screen as it was seen to the user Incident logs 25
  22. 22.  Lite ESS portal version designed for PDA (Android) • Portal->PDA: Instructions, photos • PDA->Portal: Reports, video, photos, GPS location 27
  23. 23. • DL: 10Mbps• UL: 4 Mbps• Redundancy Coax Modem Internet Modem LAN Router Router LAN ESS Rack
  24. 24.  Portable, Rugged, Military standard Includes: • ESS Servers (DFMS, Portal) • GPS clock receiver • SAT modem
