Use of DAB Satellite for Addressable Alert Delivery

  1. 1. Use of DAB Satellite for Addressable Alert Delivery Presentation at the Training Workshop on Disaster Risk Management in the Information Age by S.Rangarajan, WorldSpace at the World Bank October 8-9, 2008
  2. 2. WorldSpace: a snapshot Creating a Digital Library Solar Powered Selectively Addressable Automatic Alerts Individual Transmission to Audio Receivers Village Classroom Emergency Situations In Service In Service Wide Coverage
  3. 3. Applications of a DAB satellite: e.g., WorldSpace <ul><li>Audio </li></ul><ul><li>Direct delivery of multiple channels of Pre recorded/ Live Audio to compact receivers </li></ul>Data Multicasting <ul><li>File Broadcast Services </li></ul><ul><li>Provides for the distribution of files to all recipients of a CUG. </li></ul>Data stream transmission Provides the distribution of data streams to all recipients of a CUG. Combined Live Audio & Slide Show (CLASS) Synchronous, live instructor lead classroom. Distribution of Emergency Alert Messages Selectively addressable, secure, reliable and instantaneous.
  4. 4. Alert Delivery through WorldSpace <ul><li>Covers more than 100 countries with one secure uplink </li></ul><ul><li>Can be addressed by country, group, tier or even the current location of the receiver </li></ul><ul><li>Delivered with a latency of less than 10 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>Automatically triggers a siren/alarm whether or not the receiver in use </li></ul><ul><li>Displays text and automatically switches to audio information in local language(s) </li></ul><ul><li>Caters to diverse requirements/infrastructure ranging from a sophisticated weather office to a fisherman out at sea </li></ul><ul><li>Goes beyond conventional modes of communication and supplements/complements other technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Survives most hazardous conditions & power failures </li></ul><ul><li>Re-used for the daily requirements of the community (entertainment, agriculture, health, training..) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Alert Delivery- How it works WorldSpace Satellite Uplink CAP format Radio or Land lines Event Sensors Warning Centers To AREA Receivers CAP formatting, Audio in Multiple Languages Satellite Coverage Area
  6. 6. Alert Delivery-Custom Solutions <ul><li>Service Options </li></ul><ul><li>Text Only </li></ul><ul><li>Text with Siren </li></ul><ul><li>Text with Shared Audio </li></ul><ul><li>Text with Dedicated Audio </li></ul><ul><li>Alert plus Data Delivery </li></ul><ul><li>Terminal Options (AREA- Addressable Radio for Emergency Alerts) </li></ul><ul><li>AREA-C Audio Alerts for Community Deployment </li></ul><ul><li>AREA-M Alerts for the Mobile User </li></ul><ul><li>AREA-A Audio and Data Alerts for the Computer-connected User </li></ul>
  7. 7. AREA-C <ul><li>AREA-C is ideal for community deployment </li></ul><ul><li>Immune to loss of main power at the time of the alert </li></ul><ul><li>Battery can be recharged by main or solar power </li></ul><ul><li>External siren controlled by a relay that is closed by the WorldSpace satellite signal </li></ul><ul><li>Option to connect to Public Address system </li></ul><ul><li>Additional box displays all alert parameters </li></ul><ul><li>Radio plays the remotely selected audio channel that carries authentic information </li></ul>
  8. 8. AREA-M <ul><li>AREA-M is meant for mobile users </li></ul><ul><li>A GPS receiver is connected through the external box </li></ul><ul><li>The box displays the current location of the receiver before the onset of alert </li></ul><ul><li>The alert is triggered only if the current location of the receiver is within the alert zone defined by the sender </li></ul><ul><li>Can be powered by the vehicle power supply without using the external battery </li></ul><ul><li>Ideal for travelers on land and sea </li></ul>
  9. 9. AREA-A <ul><li>AREA-A is a configuration that connects to the USB port of a computer </li></ul><ul><li>Supports all audio and data services of WorldSpace </li></ul><ul><li>Onset of alert is indicated by a computer generated siren </li></ul><ul><li>Displays all the alert parameters (mandatory & </li></ul><ul><li>optional) </li></ul><ul><li>Can support audio/data download, even during </li></ul><ul><li>the alert state </li></ul><ul><li>Can support text-to-speech for the alert </li></ul><ul><li>description </li></ul>
  10. 10. Alert Delivery-Typical Timeline <ul><li>Actions at the Alerting end </li></ul><ul><li>Time = 5:35 pm </li></ul><ul><li>Tsunami warning received from NOAA </li></ul><ul><li>5:36 pm (1 minute elapsed) </li></ul><ul><li>Confirm the message </li></ul><ul><li>Type out Alert parameters in the CAP format using the WorldSpace GUI </li></ul><ul><li>Record a short audio message in the local language </li></ul><ul><li>Convert audio file to the required format and FTP to WorldSpace server </li></ul><ul><li>5:40 pm (5 minutes elapsed) </li></ul><ul><li>Issue the Alert through WorldSpace text channel </li></ul><ul><li>Insert audio in the alert audio channel </li></ul><ul><li>At the Receive point </li></ul><ul><li>Time = 5:41 pm ( 6 minutes elapsed) </li></ul><ul><li>AREA –C sounds a siren, displays alert parameters and switches the audio to the alert audio messaging channel whether or not the radio was being used at this time </li></ul><ul><li>AREA-M responds to this alert signal only if its current position is inside the alert zone. It also displays the text and plays out the alert audio channel </li></ul><ul><li>AREA-A uses the computer to provide a more comprehensive display of the alert parameters, plays the alert audio on the computer and optionally generates a siren sound on the computer. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Implementation Challenge <ul><li>New Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Alert Delivery is the responsibility of a government agency and usually that agency has no role or budget for social development </li></ul><ul><li>Need for coordination among Ministries </li></ul><ul><li>A comparatively large one-time investment if it has to scale up to its full potential </li></ul><ul><li>Need owners for the activities at non-alert times (which is hopefully most of the time!) </li></ul><ul><li>Continued training of personnel at the hub as well as in the communities </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability and upkeep of the system </li></ul>

  18. 18. In Summary <ul><li>The Government Agency responsible for Alert Delivery needs local partners </li></ul><ul><li>These partners can be NGO’s, Private sector or other national organizations (Each country has to choose a model that best suits it) </li></ul><ul><li>Non-alert time usage of the system vital not only for the economics, but for the local acceptance & up keep of the system </li></ul><ul><li>If implemented in a large scale, across multiple projects and over a long duration, these solutions are cost-effective </li></ul><ul><li>Need to bring in regional cooperation and inter-operability </li></ul><ul><li>Important to adopt CAP and establish a Transmission Hub for all hazards, all media and all locations </li></ul><ul><li>One point generation of the alert and multi point multiple media dissemination is reliable, scalable, sustainable and cost effective. </li></ul>
