‘MAPEX’ is developing probabilistic damage-mapping tools which will increase security and preparedness against blast threats around European critical infrastructures.
|Total budget||€330 703|
|Project Coordinator||Tecnalia Research and Innovation (Spain)|
To avoid vulnerability, ‘MAPEX’ will evaluate the potential effects of a blast on complex urban layouts and then train key agents in the new damage mapping strategies.
Simplified tools for obtaining, analysing and optimising 3D complex urban environments will make it possible to see the potential for damage to the target critical infrastructure or building and its surrounding area. ‘MAPEX’ would also illustrate the social and economic impacts of the incident. This full picture will enable authorities to put in place more effective crisis management strategies and reduce the impact on both people and physical infrastructure.
As well as increasing security awareness, the results of ‘MAPEX’ will provide information which is useful and valuable in various capacities; for example, crisis management, pre-normative documents, security recommendations and future research.
