The project will examine civilian preparedness for a CBRN event to determine how it can be strengthened and distributed in support of routine clinical treatment of poisoning. It will also test whether effective and diagnostically sound medical care can be given to the casualties of a CBRN event amid the confusion, disorder, and dangers of CBRN agents.
The main goal for TOXI-Triage is to develop and field/trial a new level of medical care and site management during triage within rescue efforts in a CBRN incident. The approach defines a concept of operations that envisages accelerated delivery of situational awareness through an ensemble of embedded sensors, drones, standoff detectors (including cameras), artificial intelligence for processing sensor signals and web-traffic from social media, and centralised command and control. Wireless traceability of casualties provides dynamic mapping including medical care.
Survey of CBRN end-user requirements
This survey aims to explore end users' operational requirements in CBRN incidents. Please note that the data are UNCLASSIFIED.
We will use the answers to develop appropriate field exercise scenarios for testing the new technologies developed in the TOXI-Triage project and to understand, inform and evaluate the technologies' functional requirements in order to ensure they address end-users’ needs.
This questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
