SO8: Portable Common Operational Picture for maximizing situational awareness

FASTER will develop a Portable Control Centre that will greatly enhance situational awareness, providing Common Operational Picture (COP) for FRs on the field improving and extending information sharing and visualization, decision support and communication into any operational environment within the emergency management. The combination of critical detected events, available infrastructures and resources, first responders’ location, images and video from the scene and other relevant information will be visually communicated in an easy-to-use way greatly supporting first responder operations. Portable COP will not be limited to outdoor usage but will also provide a dedicated tool for indoor use in complex constructions visualizing people location, sensor input and providing navigation capabilities. This will significantly improve safety and intervention speed.
