This third and last part of the ongoing series refers to the previous article which indicated three groups of entities capable of using different chemical agents to kill people and, as a consequence, achieve political and military aims. One of them – states, such as Iraq and Syria – was mentioned several weeks earlier. Now, … Read moreThe importance of chemical detection in the context of terrorist threats, part III
Recently we faced the problem that we needed to give visual access to sensor data collected by a network of chemical sensors of different technologies to a number of partners. We use different sensing technologies and high sampling rates, i.e. complexity and size of the data is somehow high, and things are difficult to handle … Read moreHave you ever struggled to store, process and visualize very large amounts of complex sensor data?
Following the ideas established in the previous article about the importance of chemical detection, it is crucial to analyze which actors (state or non-state) are the most dangerous for the European Union states and societies. Chemical agents, both Chemical Warfare Agents and Toxic Industrial Chemicals, are still under strict control not only on state levels … Read moreThe importance of chemical detection in the context of terrorist threats, part II
Fast and reliable detection of chemical hazards such as Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) is one of the measures to counter existing threats of terrorist attacks with the use of chemical substances. There is a good deal of information providing valid reasons to believe that effective and state-of-the-art CBRNe detection is … Read moreThe importance of chemical detection in the context of terrorist threats, part I
FOI develops model components in the EU-SENSE system to be able to estimate source parameters in relation to hazardous chemical releases. Data from the sensor measurements are used to estimate both the location of the source as well as the source strength. This estimation is then used to calculate concentration fields and risk areas for … Read moreDispersion modelling in EU-SENSE
The main purpose of the Sensor node development is to provide an adaptable device, which will act as a hub for various types of sensors. The 1st prototype device is based on the STM32F4 microcontroller, which is responsible for the configuration, supervision, and operation of the sensor instruments, as well as performs the function of … Read moreEU-SENSE Sensor Node
EU-SENSE system, in its design, utilizes a system of systems concept. One of many challenges related to such an approach is a difference in data schemas, formats and models in the components (especially, this is a challenge in third-party devices such as AP4C and MO detectors, where the data format cannot be modified/changed). One of … Read moreThe benefits of EU-SENSE data model
The EU-SENSE project was presented during the 16th International Multidisciplinary Modelling & Simulation Multiconference in Lisbon, Portugal. The paper called „European sensor system for CBRN Applications” prepared by Magdalena Dobrowolska-Opała and Grzegorz Gudzbeler was one of the topics of Defense & Homeland Security Simulation panel. It was a great opportunity to meet scientists interested in … Read moreEU-SENSE at 16th International Multidisciplinary Modelling & Simulation Multiconference
