RODOS: A comprehensive real-time on-line decision support system for off-site nuclear emergency management

The development of a real-time on-line decision support (RODOS) for off-site emergency management involved 10 institutes from the European Union in the initial specification and development. This number has since increased to almost 20. In addition, about the same number of institutes from East European countries have become fully integrated in the project in the last years.

The main objectives were to provide the methodological basis, develop models and databases and install the hardware and software framework of a system which offers comprehensive decision support from the very early stages of an accident up to many years after the release, and from the vicinity of the site to far distant areas unperturbed by national boundaries. Decision support is to be provided at various levels, ranging from the largely descriptive, with information on the present and future radiological situation, to an evaluation of the benefits and disadvantages of different countermeasure options, or to ranking them according to the decision maker's expressed preferences for different outcomes.

The hardware and software components of the current prototype version have been implemented in the CIS Republics and most of the Central and Eastern European countries as well as in the leading EU institutes involved in the project.
