Ranging from satellite and aerial imagery to damage assessment, crisis management tools and sophisticated predictive models, Airbus Defence and Space’s solutions allow quick and easy access to up-to-date, accurate and timely geo-information and provide reliable and cost-effective answers to civil protection and rescue services, humanitarian relief community, insurance organisations and all risk managers.
Emergency Response & Crisis ManagementUp-to-date and timely geographic information geospatial solutions to reduce response time and human suffering
Natural as well as man-made disasters regularly cause significant damage across the world - in recent years, particularly flooding has become a regular problem, and no matter the precautions, industrial accidents can never be invariably prevented. At the same time, the increasing monetary values affected by such disasters result in a continuously growing amount of loss.
Solutions for all phases of the disaster management cycle
Ranging from satellite and aerial imagery to damage assessment, crisis management tools and sophisticated predictive models, Airbus Defence and Space’s solutions can help in all phases of the risk management cycle, with:
- Rapid provision of satellite imagery and geo-information products to efficiently supports the coordination of civil protection and rescue teams, relying on data acquired by the full constellation of optical and radar operated satellites
- Public Safety solutions that help Fire, Police, Ambulance and Health and other Emergency Response Services increase their operational effectiveness and service delivery. These address all ‘blue light’ aspects from the location of staff and vehicles, through to operational planning and response, mobile data and satellite communications.
- Accurate and up-to-data geographic information that is vital to the humanitarian services across the world to assess damage from disasters, monitor complex crises and reduce response time and human suffering.
Risks threatening the population, e.g. earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, forest fires and volcanic eruptions are a reality. However their impact can be mitigated through the use of advanced geospatial solutions.
