Description/Abstract

Disasters require careful management and still have clear capability gaps. Mobile Grids and the Virtual Organisations they can support hold much promise for addressing the technological difficulties that Integrated Emergency Management still suffers from. Many forms of device, content, and human roles require safe, simple and seamless integration. Mobile Grids developed on the EU IST Integrated Project Akogrimo provide an infrastructure for efficient development, provision and maintenance that could support complex Integrated Emergency Management (IEM) applications. This is the scenario focus of one of the Akogrimo prototype testbeds. This white paper gives an introduction to how Akogrimo Mobile Grid technologies will be used within an IEM scenario and indicates enhanced business opportunities.
