EU projects
  • SDR Forum -
    Established in 1996, the SDR Forum™ is a non-profit international industry association dedicated to promoting the success of next generation radio technologies. The Forum's 100-strong membership comprises world class technical, business and government leaders from EMEA, Asia and the Americas who are passionate about creating a revolution in wireless communications based on reconfigurable radio. 
  • U-2010 -
    The project stands for ubiquitous IP centric Government & Enterprise Next Generation Networks Vision 2010 and its overall objective is to provide the most capable means of communication and the most effective access to information to everybody required to act in case of accident, incident, catastrophe or crisis, while using existing or future telecommunication infrastructures.
  • PSC Europe -
    Forum for Public Safety Communication Europe” has been established in order to facilitate consensus building in the area of public safety communication and information management systems.
  • EULER - webpage
    FP7 funded project aims to demonstrate how the benefits of SDR can be leveraged in order to drastically enhance interoperability and fast deployment in case of crisis needed to be jointly resolved. The proposed activities span the following topics: proposal for a new high-data-rate waveform for homeland security, strengthening and maturing ongoing efforts in Europe in the field of SDR standardisation, implementation of Software defined radio platforms, associated assessment of the proposal for high-data-rate waveform for security, and realisation of an integrated demonstrator targeted towards end-users.
  • OASIS Project -
    The OASIS Project addresses the Strategic objective, "Improving Risk Management", of the second call for tender of the European Commission FP6 Information Society Technologies program. The objective of OASIS is to define and develop an Information Technology framework based on an open and flexible architecture and using standards, existing or proposed by OASIS, that will be the basis of a European Disaster and Emergency Management system.
    The CHORIST (Integrating Communications for enHanced envirOnmental RISk management and citizens SafeTy) project will develop and integrate: (1.) A fully integrated, reliable and performing alert chain delivering alerts to authorities with inputs from heterogeneous sensors, disparate agencies and citizens; (2.) Heterogeneous communication means (radio, TV, sirens, GSM) to dispatch messages from authorities to as many citizens as possible within the crisis area and with limited delay; (3.) Secured, rapidly deployable and interoperable voice and high data-rate telecommunication systems (incl. ad-hoc networks) for in the field risk response teams (WiMAX, TEDS).
  • OpenTC -
    The Open Trusted Computing (OpenTC) consortium is an Research & Development project focusing on the development of trusted and secure computing systems based on open source software. The project targets traditional computer platforms as well as embedded systems such as mobile phones.
  • EMSCB -
    European Multilaterally Secure Computing Base (EMSCB) aims at developing a trustworthy computing platform with open standards that solves many security problems of conventional platforms. In the sense of multilateral security, the EMSCB platform allows the enforcement of security policies of different parties, i.e., end-users as well as industry. Consequently, the platform enables the realisation of various innovative business models, particularly in the area of Digital Rights Management, while averting the potential risks of Trusted Computing platforms concerning privacy issues. The source code of the EMSCB platform will be published under an open source license.
  • TECOM -
    The Trusted Embedded Computing (TECOM) project, an EU-funded consortium of eleven partners, aims at developing trusted computing solutions for embedded platforms, which means, that TECOM ensures especially the security and safety of embedded computing systems and infrastructures.
    Project of University Luxembourg - Interoperability Laboratory for Security in Ad-Hoc Networks. The SECAN-Lab tries to combine the academic research in the area of privacy and identity handling in distributed environments with application areas and reference scenarios elaborated in the different projects SECAN-Lab is involved in.
  • ASPIS -
    Autonomous Surveillance in Public Transport Infrastructure Systems project aims at the development of a prototype surveillance system based on autonomous, smart monitoring devices that capture data only upon the occurrence of an incident, potentially dangerous for the passengers (like e.g. an explosion blast or fire alarm). The project was launched in June 2008 and will take 36 months to complete with a budget of EUR 2.5 million.
  • DaVinci -
    Design And Versatile Implementation of Non-binary wireless Communications based on Innovative LDPC codes is an FP7 project co-funded by the European Commission (EC). The DAVINCI project aims at setting up foundations of Non-binary Digital Wireless communications which are believed to be a key enabler for reaching requirements (e.g. spectral efficiency, latency.) of next generation Cellular systems. The primary objective of the DAVINCI project will be thus to develop and strengthen its core technology: a new family of Non-Binary LDPC codes, then to propose new optimization strategies for Link Level procedures (Link Adaptation, Turbo-Processing, HARQ, Resource Allocation,.) in order to take fully advantage of the Non-Binary nature of the information.
  • SICMA -
    Simulation of Crisis Management Activities is a project under the EU Security Research programme. The objective is to improve Health Service crisis managers decision-making capabilities. This is achieved through development of SICMA which is an integrated suite of modelling and analysis tools. SICMA provides insight into the collective behaviour of the whole organisation in preparation and response to crisis scenarios.
  • Emergency Support System -
    ESS is funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, Theme 10-"Security", call FP7-SEC-2007-1, Work programme Topic 4.2-01 "Network enabled command and control system". The Emergency Support System (ESS) is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies which will provide actionable information to crisis managers during abnormal events. This information will enable improved control and management, resulting in real-time synchronization between forces on the ground (police, rescue, firefighters) and out-of-theater command and control centers (C&C).
  • PROSIMOS - Priority Communications for Critical Situations of Mobile Networks -
    European project that has been funded with the support of the Prevention, Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security-related Risks Programme of the European Commission - Directorate-General Home Affairs". The main objective is to solve the issue of having Priority Communications on Public Mobile Networks (PCPMN) in crisis situations for emergency bodies when these networks become overloaded to the point that emergency workers have trouble getting critical calls through
