The second Video of “SecureGas extended Components” presented to you by RINA and it is about: “A3 – Onshore Landslide Susceptibility and Alert/Monitoring System”.
These components have been “extended” – that is improved and integrated – to meet the needs of end users, addressing and solving the proposed business cases scenarios, adopting the most innovative technological solutions, without forgetting cost control and an easy and scalable deployment.
SecureGas Project has started a video campaign about it’s “Extended Components” which will presented once a week to explain in detail the description, objectives and the use in the project of all SecureGas extended components.
the 1st Video is presented by ADPM Drones and it is about:
Autonomous docking station and UAV based asset management
From a one-person company founded in 2006, the D.M.A.T. Consulting KG developed in 2010. At the beginning it was mainly training courses and a few small projects in which the expertise “International Disaster Protection and Disaster Management” was in demand. But continually, DMAT has developed into a company that also was more and more in demand for major projects (research and innovation) for the European Union, the European Space Agency etc., especially as an “end user”. During the research and development projects it was experienced that, although great scientific projects are being developed, unfortunately the practical relevance of the “end users” was often neglected. This enabled us to contribute to the further development of emergency equipment, technologies and strategies.
DMAT was also able to increase its range of advisory services for activities relevant to crises and disasters, as well as providing training for the competent support of the affected population and the responsible decision-makers before, during and after natural disasters. This often was done in EU-funded civil protection projects, where we were able to contribute our expertise worldwide either as a partner or as a subcontractor. The last major projects with the participation of DMAT before Covid 19, were “Host Nation Support” exercises in Austria, Albania and Ghana, as well as two large-scale exercises on 5 islands in the Netherlands Antilles, which were an extreme but exciting challenge for us because of the distance.
In 2014 our team was strengthened by Sebastian Hirschmugl and since 2019 we have also been able to strengthen our team internationally with Sara Abdelwahid from Iraq.
In all of its activities, DMAT pays great attention to fair working and ethical principles and is a member of ARGE proEthik.
Despite the restrictions caused by the corona, we hope to be able to continue building up and expanding our range of services.
A master thesis at the university of Vienna, department for risk prevention and disaster management, addresses the topic (Crisis communication). The author has developed a survey (Communication and information sharing in case of disruptions to gas critical infrastructure networks) aiming to get information from SecureGas partner, SecureGas Stakeholder, relevant governmental responsibilities in crisis management and emergency services. The (anonymous) answers will directly contribute to the need-based development of crisis communication in SecureGas project.
The time to answer the SURVEY on SecureGas Crisis communication has been extended until June 14th 2020.

Crisis communication and information sharing are of high importance for the good overcoming of disaster events. In H2020 research project #SecureGas we are working on the challenges of crisis communication and -information in case of disruptions of critical infrastructure in gas networks.

This EU Exercise is a project of the European Commission, DG ECHO (Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations) in Brussels – specifically the CALL FOR TENDER NO. ECHO / A2 / SER / 2018/16. funded by European Union Civil Protection
The objective of the HNS TTX is to practice emergency response structures at strategic and operational levels and improve inter-institutional co-operation in the area of Host Nation Support, also through Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs). The ultimate objective is to remove as much as possible any foreseeable obstacles to international assistance. This ensures that disaster response operations proceed smoothly.
Within the project, three HNS TTX has already conducted –
in Austria/Eisenerz (is conducted 21.-24.05.2019)
in Albania/Mirdita (is conducted 02.-05.07.2019)
finally, in Ghana/Accra (is conducted 03.-06.12.2019)
