Minimising damage in air crash aftermath

 Research team successfully tests new data analysis software to save time and lives in crisis situations


The ESS project, managed by the REA and supported by more than € 9 million in EU funds, has successfully tested the efficiency of new software for the collection, analysis and sharing of real time data, supporting crisis-related decision making.

The new tool was tested during an air crash drill in the south of France.

It can be set up in one hour, is entirely autonomous, and has its own generators and satellite communication system.
