Project Objectives

The overall purpose of the ICARUS project is to apply its innovations for improving the management of a crisis and by doing so to reduce the risk and impact of the crisis on citizens. The use of unmanned search and rescue devices embedded in an appropriate information architecture and integrated into existing infrastructures will help crisis personnel by providing detailed and easy to understand information about the situation. The proposed system will inform crisis personnel about real dangers present on the ground, and will thus increase their performance in resolving the situation.
