Kostas Test 2

This is a test Innovation report

Disaster Mitigation and Response Information System

This all-in-one solution is designed to cope with all the types of emergencies in focus of the BRIGAID project and also to support each stage of the crisis operations life span.

Developed by GDi

Our proposed innovative solution is an approach which relies on the collaboration between Geographic Information Systems based on Esri Technology and real-time information sharing sensors. This approach helps all the relevant agencies and institutes playing a role in every disaster phase from planning phase or preparedness, mitigation, management, damage estimation and control and also recovery from damage, closing the chain of all the phases in a disaster situation.

TRL5. Laboratory testing of integrated system
Technology validated in relevant environment. Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components. The proposed innovative solution is composed of already made, of-the-shelf, ready to be used, Industry Standard technology components such as proven commercial software and hardware as well as professional IT services to implement and configure them together in order to achieve the desired functionalities. Such solution benefits also from the proven and positive experience of past implementations in countries such as the USA, at county, state and federal level, thus providing an excellent integrated multi-tenant information platform.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

This innovation combines the Esri Technology Platform with real-time sensor data gathering insights for all the BRIGAID thematic disasters. All of these are connected into one single platform which is then spread throughout all the organizations dealing with planning, mitigation, damage estimation, recovery and field visits. A central platform where all the data from sensors and field measurements are stored and can be accessed by all the actors involved during a disaster event.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

There are no limitations or conditions under which the tool woould not work. It has been already proved to reduce the probability of exposure to disasters ant their consequences by allowing to plan and prepare in ahead.

Added value
The added value of this innovation is the proof that this technology has already helped in mitigating effects of climate induced disasters. The most recent proof where this innovation differs and leads above other innovative ideas was how it helped the FEMA agency in United States to deal with the largest hurricanes and floods. Without this tool, impacts due to the disasters would have been even higher.
