INTREPID is a 3-year-long EU-funded project that aims to help first responders deal with the challenges they face when they arrive at the scene of a hazardous incident, providing a platform that will improve the 3D exploration and analysis of disaster areas.

INTREPID platform: INMOS.
When arriving on the scene of a disaster, First Responders are facing many challenges: time, security, victims, dangers... They have to wait for specialized teams or for the zone to be fully secured.
INTREPID project aims to help them being more efficient, safe, and fast, by taking less risk.
To do so, the project's goal is to provide a platform, allowing First Responders to immediately start operations without delay. It improves the exploration and assessment of disaster zones.

INTREPID integrate several components divided in 3 categories:
INMOS platform display on a desktop, the drone (UAV) and the robot (UGV) developed in the framework of the project.
The INTREPID consortium consists of world-class research centers and SMEs, coordinated by an industrial company with a leading position in the security sector.
The project follows a user-centric methodology involving many First Responders organizations, and an international Advisory Board and Open User Group ensuring stakeholders diversity. Social, ethical and legal constraints are carefully considered during the whole project's lifetime.

Between 2020 and 2023, the project, tools and modules will be developed, implemented, tested and improved in order to achieve the best possible version that meets the requirements of First Responders.
The project will validate its effectiveness in challenging, complex and complementary real life testing (Pilots) to support rescue operations in areas that are complex or dangerous to explore.
