Trial Description

The demonstrates the potential interest of a more integrated high-level Management (CM) system in the European Union (EU), partly in cross-border contexts in term of improved situation , coordination, resource pooling & sharing, and cross border cooperation.

The Trial itself also serves as a demonstration of a Common Operational Picture (COP) approach potential at the European level. To achieve this, solutions enhancing joint COP production and usage for improved between agencies should be tested in the field.

This Trial is organized as a combination of a table top  and a field exercise:

  • The first part (May 23, 2018 – Wednesday) - a table-top exercise based on a test bed located in SGSP’s premises.
  • The second part (May 24, 2018 – Thursday) – parallel, logically combined, table-top and full-scale field exercise.

Modelling and visualization of chemical and radiological threats' dynamics

To enhance operations when hazardous materials are involved, there is a for fast and accurate of the concerned territory at the pre-event and response phase (for the incident-specific attributes that cannot be anticipated at the planning phase). Detailed forecasts and models (predictive modeling capabilities) need to be produced in real time with incident-specific variables. The incident commander needs to understand both the current situation, and how it will evolve ( dynamic).

Time is a critical factor.

References in the literature: this is very specific and therefore not identified as such in the literature. Broader gaps about related issues such as the ability to identify cascading effects possibly impacting the response have been identified in several studies.

Incident commanders need timely, detailed and reliable status information and forecasts on the spread of chemical and radiological hazards and their impact.
It is necessary to develop adequate hazards' modelling and simulation capacity.
During response, near real time feed of actual data is needed to allow for proper assessment of threats and reliable forecasts.

Assessment of cross vulnerabilities

It is necessary to assess the consequences of a on people, property, the environment both separately, and including cascading effects across those three domains. This will help in identifying potential courses of action and assessing their probable outcomes, using modelling, and making use of lessons learnt and knowledge from past crisis.
Decision Support Systems are expected to take into account crisis dynamics, provide a assessing of the expected influences of possible actions (intervention modelling), and enable task prioritisation.

References in the literature: this is not identified as such in the literature. Broader gaps about related issues such as the ability to identify cascading effects or decision support prompts have been identified in several studies.

Assessment of vulnerabilities needs to account for cross domain interdependencies and potential cascading effects
The assessment of needs requires model- and data-based prediction of impact across domains
Information on cross vulnerabilities and their actual and potential impact is needed to develop and sustain COP
The understanding of cross vulnerabilities and their impact affords better definition, prioritization and assignment of tasks and respective allocation of limited resources
The assessment of cross vulnerabilities and their impact is integrated into decision support system(s)

Resource planning for large scale and long-term crises

Limitations in the planning of resources (qualified personnel and equipment) for during large scale and long-term

Establish an integrated crisis management organization with a centralised HQ, supporting centres and local command structures will provide for better awareness and allocation of limited assets to priority tasks and, if considered necessary, augmentation of the command, control, and coordination structures.
The crisis management doctrine and training need to elaborate requirements and principles of response to rare, high intensity and long-term crises.
The exploration the implications of alternative crisis management futures, identified by rigorous foresight, will facilitate awareness and anticipation of highly demanding crises, e.g. by conducting exercises (table top, academia) and simulations in alternative futures' scenarios.
Plans for crisis management operations need to account for the full range of activities at every level of command and management and establishing cross border coordination.
Operational planning, and plans, need to be coordinated with military and other (e.g. private, international) providers of support.

O1.1 Realistic real time calculation of chemical and radiological threat dynamics

An event for systematically assessing solutions for current and emerging needs in such a way that practitioners can do this following a pragmatic and systematic approach.

Test bed evaluation

Evaluate the usability of the DRIVER+

The software tools, middleware and methodology to systematically conduct Trials and evaluate solutions within an appropriate environment. An “appropriate environment” is a testing environment (life and/or virtual) where the trialling of solutions is carried out using a structured, all-encompassing and mutual learning approach.

Overarching scenario

The of the DRIVER+ 1 includes a massive cross-border release of liquid toxic substances as a result of maintenance failure in a reservoir collecting chemical wastes. Two crises management centres on both sides of the border and the on-site operation commanding centre based in the field have to exchange information and coordinate their activities in the phase of the .
