Short description of the solution. Technical details if relevant. Keywords.

DART is developed from systems designed for army use. It is nodal and requires no central server. It uses fixed messages (Data Links ) to send all data. It is designed to be graphical and require no computer knowledge by the operator. It can use any communications medium. Key deliverables are:
• Shared awareness of the disaster environment
• Distributed decision making
• Enhanced safety, save first responder lives, save civilian lives, reduce damage to properties and the environment
• Better flow of information (real time data exchange)
• Higher tempo of operations (minutes versus hours)
• Interoperability - graphical user interface, one software, multiple languages

TRL of the proposed solution - Innovation stage (if applicable) 9: System Test, Launch & Operations

Expected/scheduled future developments

Automatic analysis of IR images to extract data on the fire line on board UAV, helicopter, light aircraft
Communications Range extension to overcome limitations imposed by heavy foliage, using Helikites

Generic comments

DART is designed to provide a common means of engaging natural and man made disasters more effectively and more safely across teams from multiple countries using different equipment, different approaches and different languages.

We recognise that each country operates in different ways and DART is flexible and adaptable enough to support all these modes of operating and supports use by multi-national teams.

DART is communications agnostic. It uses data rather than voice to avoid misunderstanding and enable multiple users speaking and reading different languages to share data using a common software tool.

We have partners in Europe to supply hardware and communications and support integration and deployment.
