Role in the project
DIGINEXT will participate in all 9 work packages beginning with the collection of end user needs. The data will feed into the development of the novel system in the Mixed Reality Preparedness Platform and visualisation of the Common Operational Picture. The ultimate purpose is the creation of an innovative common operational picture system that is integrated with the MRPP to support decision making. To this end DIGINEXT will lead on the MRPP preparedness layers, the IN-PREP Scenario Builder, live sessions and decision support, mixed reality creation tools, Integration of the Common Operational Picture and the system development and adaptation.
