The Emergency Management System incorporates several key information resources and visualizes and tracks relevant alerts in near real-time around the world. For NGOs, many different warning systems cover all necessary areas which are needed for fast response, and alert to incidents, threats and hazards as they occur or evolve. By delivering detailed and up-to-date information in case of natural disasters (earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, flooding, landslides,…) or humanitarian crises, our service provides vital information to the authorities so that they can respond more quickly and efficiently to disaster scenarios.
The Emergency Management System also aims to monitor risk indicators and vulnerability information on specific areas of interest. The purpose of this system is to collect and analyze data and map various vulnerability indicators and then forward it to teams on the ground to improve the local preparedness of NGOs and the local community for upcoming disasters. This satellite-based system has the advantage, that also larger regions can be mapped with only one image acquisition and additionally could give crisis information for areas which are hard to access.
