ELRI-184 "Integrated Intelligent Platform for Monitoring the Cross-Border Natural-Technological Systems" (INFROM)

Nowadays, monitoring and control methods are applicable only to specific Natural Technological System (NTSs). As a result, the statistical information about existing systems is not well coordinated. This drawback becomes more evident in case of different incidents and disasters, when effective decisions must be taken within a short time period and different information flows should be analyzed.

Monitoring information regarding incidents and disasters is received typically from different facilities (e.g. biometric systems, aerospace systems, etc.), and, therefore, it is heterogeneous in nature (e.g. electrical signals, audio and video information, text, etc.).

Thus, since modern NTS are very complex and multi-functional objects, their monitoring and control should be performed in conditions of large-scale heterogeneous data sets. Up to now, the monitoring and control processes of NTS are not completely automated.

The project addresses the topical problem of integrated real-time monitoring and control of cross-border natural-technological systems (NTS) in normal and emergency situations based on heterogeneous data received from space and ground-based facilities.

The project idea is to develop a universal common intelligent platform in order to unify efforts of specialists from Russia and Latvia to protect the environment, based on integrated space-ground monitoring.
