Disaster management involves activities aiming to organize and manage resources and responsibilities to minimize human and material losses. The need for solid, real-time information to support authorities’ intervention, coordinate humanitarian activities and remove civilian security threats requires the use and analysis of satellite and multi-source data as well as fast mapping methods. The overall objective of the SPERO project – “Space technologies used in the management of disasters and major crises, manifested at local, national and regional levels” is to create a support platform for the management of emergency situations generated by natural disasters, industrial accidents, humanitarian crisis situations or extreme atmospheric and space phenomena.
The project focuses on building a complex geo-spatial database, visualization, processing and analysis tools; inventory of risk areas and existing and necessary means for the management of major disasters and crises; integrated situational analysis at local, national and regional level; facilitating the access to these informational resources to structures with major crisis prevention and disaster response tasks; substantiating national and regional initiatives and policies and initiatives; Integration and capitalization of national expertise in support areas such as geo-spatial sciences, geodesy, cartography, photogrammetry, remote sensing, astrophysics, optical and video data processing, security and ICT.
Successful implementation of the project will have a significant impact on the profitability of the economic agents involved by increasing the annual turnover based on the services they offer in the proposed system. The achievement of the proposed system produces immediate positive economic effects by lowering the cost of crisis analysis and management, real-time and accurate estimation of the resources needed to solve crisis situations, as well as subsequent monitoring of the situations and problems generated. The results of the project will be disseminated and exploited through specific activities by the consortium partners.
