RescueLab

IT-Supported Training Environments for Civil Protection- and Rescue Forces

Management Agency: VDI Technologiezentrum

Duration: November 2012 - November 2014

Description

RescueLab aims to develop innovative education and training methods, designed to increase the quality and cost-effectiveness of training exercises in the field of civil protection. New education models are realised and evaluated. By means of (partially) automatic recording of training exercises, it is intended to create an objective basis for debriefing purposes. The results from RescueLab will contribute to the sustainable quality management of operative, tactical and strategic training exercises for civil protection.

The chair C.I.K. at the University of Paderborn in RescueLab focuses on the basic investigation and evaluation of IT-supported possibilities for the analysis of training exercises in the field of civil protection, and the visualisation of the respective data for trainees, observers and referees. Thereby C.I.K. in the project consortium assumes the tasks to answer basic questions scientifically, and to prove the benefit of the RescueLab solutions towards the current technical and scientific state of the art. The investigation is based on workshops and interviews as well as observations of training exercises with strong involvement of experts from the field of civil protection.

Central research topics:

  •     Conducting interviews and workshops and observing exercises for requirements analysis and evaluation
  •     Derivation of generally applicable evaluation criteria for exercises in civil security
  •     Examination of evaluation and visualization methods with regard to their suitability for RescueLab

 

Objectives

  • Identification of possibilities for IT-support for the preparation, execution, observation und analysis of training exercises in the field of civil protection

  • Identification of universally valid evaluation criteria for such exercises as a basis for an IT-based processing of data

  • Demonstration of possibilities for the (partially) automated analysis of training exercises in the field of civil protection, and for the visualisation of the determined results

Research at the C.I.K.

The C.I.K. focused in RescueLab on the basic investigation and evaluation of IT-supported possibilities for the evaluation of exercises in civil security and the visualization of the corresponding data for exercise participants, observers and referees. The C.I.K. took on the task of providing scientific answers to fundamental questions and demonstrating the added value of RescueLab solutions compared to the current state of the art and science. The investigation was based on workshops and interviews as well as exercise observations with strong involvement of experts from the civil emergency response.

 

RescueLab was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the "Research for Civil Security" program of the Federal Government over a period of two years and one month with approximately 1 million euros.
