|Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?|
|Note: Provide information about the current trends especially as regards to the scientific status of the presented R&D result|
|Development of a modern Surveillance, Alert & Warning System is at this moment a very needed technology having in mind the terrorism that is very present in the today world. This activity in regard to reserch and development is present in many of the leading companies in the world. The presented soltution of the the Surveillance, Alert & Warning System is fully compatible with the current trends in this filed.|
|2||What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to? How was it addressed before?|
|Note: Please concentrate on the specific result and the status before its development|
|The problem which might be noted is in providing the adequate information about the potential dangers in regard to air, water and land pollution in order to design and develop the appropriate S, A&W system. Also the problem is in provide funds for design and delivery of such systems.|
|3||What is the potential for further research?|
|Note: Again refer to the specific result and it scientific potential|
|The potential for future research and development of state-of-the-art Surveillance, Alert & Warning System is huge. These systems must be constanly upgraded in order to cope with new potential dangers and hayards which migh arrise from willful (terrorism) and unwillful human activities (enviromental protection aganst air, water and land polution) , as well as, elemntar dangers (earthquakes, floods, fires of large areas, etc.)
The A,S & W System is structured so that it enables both, vertical and horizontal connectivity of all parts of the system, as well as, its application for various technology, together with providing the necessary consulting expertise and documentation with configuration tools including training to the end user personnel.
|4||What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)|
|Note: Provide the option relevant to the status in the scientific area of the result and the national status in terms of national, EU or global protection.|
|This system should is not fully protected. There are some elements of the technical solution of the A, S & W system which could be protected.
|5||What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR -protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?|
|Note: Describe the process and costs in accordance to national rules or further costs if international IPR protection is considered.|
|This system should be protected by patent or similar rights of protection, and some help in both, financial and expert resources would be welcome.
|6||What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?|
|The complete project has been done with a very high level of expertize and scientific contribution. It a mature A,S &W system fully operational and ready for deployment. The results obtained in testing phase on a piltot project were excellent.
