TOXI-triage addresses all the requirements outlined in call DRS-2-2014 by assembling a new multi-disciplinary team from across Europe with proven world-class records of accomplishment.
The team is able to translate and merge advanced, proven technologies from clinical medicine with practices of search and rescue into an integrated concept of operation (CONOP) for triage in a catastrophic CBRN incident. The TOXI-triage project will develop and test new and existing technologies as an integrated capability with embedded sensors, drones, standoff detectors (including cameras), artificial intelligence and centralized communications (The Integrator).
These will enable and inform Command and Control using ‘Traceability by Design’ as the foundation for the management and recovery of information and documentation of medical care. The CONOP of TOXI-triage meets the needs of casualties and end users with an economic foundation of multiple use applications to enhance routine clinical medicine EU wide. These innovations will create opportunities for EU companies to develop new technologies and markets. It sustains the technology base for the future advances in CBRN triage capabilities such as an end user Field Toolkit for CBRN agents.
The TOXI-triage project is scheduled to start in Q2 2015 and will run for three years. Project partners include the Universities of Loughborough (UK), Helsinki (FI), Edinburgh (UK), Athens (GR), Hannover (DE), Paderborn (DE) and JYU (FI), the Police National CBRN Centre (UK), the Oslo University Hospital (NO), the Fire Rescue Brigades of Moravia (CZ) and South Savo (FI), the MoD of Greece, and industry partners GAS (DE), Airsense (DE), Environics (FI), UFZ (DE), T4i Engineering (UK) and ATOS (ES).
