Real-time risk maps to support decision-making in CBRNe situations
Within the framework of the ERIMAPS project, the foundations for the development of software to support decision-makers in response to CBRNe situations have been developed. Using less input data, the software uses automated risk analysis to create a risk map of the affected area for the user, where areas with particularly high numbers of victims are highlighted in colour. The risk map is based on the combination of simple physical propagation models (explosion pressure, thermal radiation and toxic propagation) with GIS data (person and building data). In addition, the probability of residence of persons, which depends on the day of the week and the time of the week, as well as current weather data, are incorporated into the risk analysis. The ERIMAPS project is carried out within the framework of the Austrian funding programme for security research KIRAS and with the participation of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism. The Chair of Thermal Processing Technology of Montanuniversität Leoben would like to thank its cooperation partners Johanniter Österreich Ausbildung und Forschung gemeinnützige GmbH, the Federal Ministry of State Defence, the Professional Fire Brigade Graz, the Professional Fire Brigade Vienna and Flammpunkt GmbH.
