Modern Crisis Management Tools

Friedrich Steinhäusler, University of Salzburg



Major efforts have been undertaken in the European Union and the United States to compensate for the deficits encountered by emergency services in responding to natural and man-made disasters. Hitherto, R&D progress with a significant potential for practical application has been made in the topic areas: (a) mobile, automated detectors for field use in hazardous environments; (b) risk assessment using 3D computer modeling; (c) deployment of ad hoc networks for establishing real-time multiband communication; and (d) decision support systems integrating visual, audio, numerical and qualitative information. The paper addresses the current status of these hardware- and software developments.
