Project Overview

The project Integrated system for the detection, prevention, alert in crisis situations and interventions in extreme risk situations (SICERE) aims at a practical demonstration of the capability and efficiency of the integrated system for surveillance, detection, prevention, and alert that fructifies the advantages of using mini and micro UAVs. The purpose aimed at by the SICERE project is to create an active, efficient, reliable and inexpensive support system, intended for the management of crisis situations, both during and after the occurrence of the major risk event.

General objectives and estimated results

The scientific objectives are the following:

  • Collecting and analyzing the actual requirements of the users and developing realistic operational scenarios and concepts of robust operations;  defining a criteria set for evaluating the validation processes;
  • Development of an basic aerial segment of mini aerial platforms, sensors and control station; analyzing the capability of the existing wireless systems for data link; the aerial system will be adjusted and redesigned so that it can fulfill the users’ requirements in crisis management;
  • Development of the UAV cells in command and  local control centers (C3L) based on video processing and systems’ analysis; studying informational architectures and dissemination strategies; the system will be personalized according to the crisis management authorities’ requirements and it will be interoperable with other surveillance systems;
  • Developing and validating an integrated air- ground surveillance based on the aerial system and on the UAV cell incorporated in C3L;
  • Evaluation of the technological evolution and of the limits imposed by the current regulations with regard to UAV operation in the civil aerial space; developing recommendations and relevant technologies (for example, mission planning and collisions’ avoidance sub-systems) for using UAV in SICERE applications;
  • Validating the air-ground surveillance system in an operational scenario; tests and experiments in different configurations and accoutrements.
