The AIRBEAM project proposes a situation awareness toolbox for the management of crisis over wide area taking benefit of an optimised set of aerial (unmanned) platforms, including satellites.
The number of unmanned air- and space-borne platform available and their associated sensors present a new set of challenges to end users involved in the effective management of emergencies and actions of law enforcement.
Within the scope of crisis management, the project intends to provide official public users from each Member States with the means to specify their own needs and to assess the technical solutions provided by unmanned aerial platforms.
Through intense collaboration between industrial partners, stakeholders and end users, AIRBEAM will define an ambitious yet realistic concept of use.
By running scenarios that will be properly selected and defined by the end-users within the project in a simulated environment, the increased capabilities for situation awareness will be assessed methodically. Various platform and sensor mixes will be compared using key performance indicators among which is cost effectiveness.
Live demonstrations with multiple civil unmanned aerial platforms will complete these ground simulation exercises in demonstrating to end users the potential and maturity of the coordinated use of multiple platforms.
