INACHUS main objective is to achieve significant time reduction for Urban Search and Rescue (USaR) operations by providing wide area situation awareness solutions for improved detection and localisation of trapped victims. The detection and localisation of victim are assisted by simulation tools for predicting structural failures and a holistic decision support mechanism incorporating operational procedures and resources of relevant actors.
INACHUS offers deeper understanding on typical scenarios regarding structural failures and damages following various types of incidents. Integrating new types of sensors and technologies for detecting and locating entrapped victims,
INACHUS adds significant benefits to team coordination, mapping capabilities, Emergency Support Systems (ESS), and Common Operational Pictures (COP)
CS GROUP is in charge of the common operational picture (COP), based on CRIMSON product, providing crucial tools for geographical environment visualisation and real time interactions. The first field test was held in Ågesta, near Stockholm, testing the performance of the victim localisation sensorial solutions: seven technical demonstrations were performed with urban rescue (USaR) specialist from Sweden, the Netherlands and France.
