The next real test of the project will take place in Marseille, France. It will take place from 17 to 21 October and will bring together the whole consortium for tests, workshops and discussions.
After a successful first Pilot in Stockholm last year, in November 2021, all the INTREPID consortium partners will meet again, from 17 to 21 October. It will take place at the BMPM’s CETIS training center, at the port of Marseille, France.
This Pilot goal is to evaluate, in real conditions, the technological innovations progress, and user friendliness of the INTREPID beta release, and enable the end users to use the technology itself. This time, the scenario, created by BMPM, CPLAN, and the consortium, will simulate an industrial incident in a SEVESO site, INTREPID tools will face fire, potentially toxic smoke, and explosive gas leak risks.
Pilot 2 Teaser
The scenario is the following : Pilot 2 simulates a major explosion on a large SEVESO upper-tier site during working hours.
First responders will face fire, potentially toxic smoke, and explosive gas leak risks in an environment made of damaged and standing structures, as well as indoor and outdoor areas where victims may lay unconscious. In this hardly accessible area, Firefighters and CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) units will use the innovative INTREPID technology (INMOS, BIM, indoor drones, robots, 3D mapping...) to explore the area, collect information, understand the situation, locate victims and precisely assess risks. Each detail of this training has been designed and prepared by the consortium and in particular by the host, Marseille Marine Fire Brigade (BMPM).
Its main purpose is to evaluate, in real conditions, the technological innovations progress, and user-friendliness of the INTREPID beta release. It will enable the End- Users to use INTREPID platform itself, ensuring that these tools fit their needs, in order to confirm capabilities and identify the potential improvements to work on during the next and last year of the project.
