PLENARY 3: Space for Integrated Risk Management
Location: Conference Room 4th floor Radisson Montevideo Victoria Plaza Hotel
Tuesday 22 May 2018, 11:45 – 13:00
Space technologies can contribute to a range of services as risk analysis, modelling and risk mitigation strategies in many areas helping companies in their decision making. Earth Observation satellite can provide images that can be used for example to detect impact of flooding events or any major disaster; GNSS can be used for tracking the position of people or vehicles that are equipped with a receiver; satellite communication can assist data exchange when terrestrial communication is not available. The session will offer several examples covering a variety of aspects, such as risk scenarios, security, legal, CBRNe threats, etc. Identifying and mitigating low-probability yet high-impact events can save lives, resources and environmental disruption.
