Title Testing the implementation of a flying localization system into emergency response using a tabletop exercise Type Conference Article
Year 2019 Publication Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2019
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Urban search and rescue, unmanned aerial vehicle, command and control structures, tabletop exercise, emergency management
Abstract To optimize the search for trapped victims after building collapses, the authors participated in the development ofI a localization system based on an unmanned aerial vehicle. The objective of this study is to evaluate an approach to implement this system into the command and control structures during the emergency response after a building collapse. For this purpose, a tabletop exercise, based on a gas explosion scenario in an apartment building, was carried out with emergency response managers of the fire department and the German federal agency of technical relief. Observers have documented the exercise. Additionally, audio and video recordings were used. Thus, statements could be made about the implementation approach and the tabletop exercise method. Based on the results, the implementation approach can be considered appropriate. In addition, knowledge was gained about the appropriateness of tabletop exercises for the purpose of scientific evaluation.

Title Evaluation of a flying localization system for the rescue of buried victims – A scenario based training approach Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication ISCRAM 2018 Conference Proceedings – 15th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2018
Volume Issue Pages 1143-1147
Keywords Urban search and rescue, unmanned aerial vehicle, scenario development, scenario based training, emergency exercise
Abstract The objective of this study was to develop various scenarios for evaluating an unmanned aerial vehicle that is developed for the localization of buried people after a building collapse. To test their concept of implementing this system into the command structure of organized first response the authors plan to carry out a tabletop exercise in laboratory scale and a large-scale exercise. Scenario based training is used as methodic approach for these exercises. To develop realistic scenarios, relevant national and international organizations and their requirements have been identified. Also, the requirements of the localization system have been taken into account. Furthermore, real incidents have been analyzed and their match with the requirements has been verified. As result one national and one international scenario, based on real incidents, are developed.
