The E-SPONDER is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies which will provide actionable information and communication support to first responders that act during abnormal events (crises) occurring in critical infrastructures. This information will enable improved control and management, resulting in real time synchronization between forces on the ground (police, rescue, fire fighters) and out-of-theatre command and control centres (CC).

The approach guiding the E-SPONDER project is based on the fusion of variable forms of field-derived data within a central system which will then provide information analysis and decision support applications at designated CC locations in order to provide in situ support to first responders that operate in Critical Infrastructures. Statistics show that efficient emergency system can reduce accident losses to 6%, compared with situations without emergency system. As a result, an efficient emergency system is a key to cope with all kinds of sudden events and improve safety of cities and countries.

To do this, E-SPONDER will achieve the following objectives:
i) Improvement of front end data collection technologies installed both on portable and fixed platforms, providing a flexible yet comprehensive coverage of the affected area;
ii) this data will then be fused and analyzed to provide real-time decision support;
iii) E-SPONDER will make these resources readily available to commanders through the use of easily accessible web-portals but lastly and most important it will provide significant support based on Information and Communication Technologies to the First Responders.

Thus, E-SPONDER will minimize the uncertainty that characterizes crisis events, thereby limiting their scope. Once E-SPONDER elements are ready for deployment they will be integrated and extensively field tested.
