Satellite Based Asset Tracking for Supporting Emergency Management in Crisis Operations
The SPARTACUS project, “Satellite Based Asset Tracking for Supporting Emergency Management in Crisis Operations” was succesfully launched at the end of 2013 and concluded in October 2016, having achieved the objective of creating an integrated system of spatial and terrestrial technologies to manage emergency and disaster scenarios.
The SPARTACUS system provides accurate tracking and positioning (mapping) of target objects, being principally rail vehicles and wagons, vans and trucks (used by the emergency teams), but also those people (i.e. first responders) helping on the ground during emergency situations. The system monitors and manages assets, aid delivery and first responders at the scene.
Going forward, D’Appolonia as project coordinator will be at the forefront acting as the application configurator of SPARTACUS system for customers. In that role, D’Appolonia will liaise with those companies providing each of the individual components in order to provide a world-class integrated emergency asset tracking and communication platform, based on open data and cloud services.
