Final Report - ASSIST (Alpine Safety, Security And Information Services and Technologies)

Project ID: 12317
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the 'Alpine safety, security & information services and technologies' (Assist) project. Funded under the European's Community Sixth Framework Programme, Assist aimed to demonstrate how Earth observation (EO) data and Global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) can improve risk management of natural disasters.

This report describes the efforts of the project partners to open the way for different autonomous services, providing rescuers with the needed information without distracting them from their main task. Assist successfully reached its objective within a 30-month time frame.

It provided a proof of concept bridging the gap between the benefits envisioned from the harmonised exchange of satellite and terrestrial data and the benefits derived from the implementation of this concept is presented. The results from the assessment of available remote sensing techniques that could help the development of industrial or commercial applications completed the report.
