EARTHQUAKE CRISIS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
During major natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, forest fires) terrestrial telecommunications often collapse, excluding the affected areas from the «outside world». In such cases the coordination of rescue teams is very difficult. Satellite telecommunications can be very helpful in such cases.
Aratos Technologies S.A. with the online integrated system ECM-PLUS provides
an effective solution for telecommunication in emergency.
This solution is based on the cooperation between satellite communications and wireless technology. It concerns about the development of a communication link between the decision making center and the affected region, where the rescue teams act. Moreover, it provides installation of a local wireless telecommunication network at the affected area, in order to provide the necessary means to the members of the rescue teams to communicate with each other.
