Periodic Report 2 - ODYSSEY (Strategic Pan-European Ballistics Intelligence Platform for Combating Organised Crime and Terrorism)

Project ID: 218237
Funded under: FP7-SECURITY


This is the periodic report of the ODYSSEY project which had as a main objective to undertake research for the creation and development of a secure platform for the sharing of information about gun-crimes throughout the European Union (EU) in order to combat organised crime and terrorism. The project would show that data from multiple, heterogeneous sources can be combined in a high volume data repository and exercised using semantic knowledge extraction and data-mining to facilitate appropriate, fast and responsible decision making and alerts.

The report briefly describes the major goals of the project and the progress towards them in its first months. It also outlines the expected outcomes of the ODYSSEY project which will demonstrate a framework and reference application that will extend the management of ballistics information across the wide range of IT platforms within the EU.
