Risk & Emergency Management

The advantages of using geo-information derived from Earth Observation (EO) satellites in time-critical situations have been well proven in recent decades. In particular, in the wake of natural or man-made disasters, our processing and analysing of satellite data using standard techniques can provide fast and synoptic information during the first critical stage of a crisis.

In this early stage, when every minute counts, GAF is equipped to meet the challenge of supplying accurate and reliable information as fast as possible in a very short time frame. When natural disasters, major man-made accidents or other time-critical situations occur, the availability of geo-information is an asset that supports decision-making processes in situations such as.

  • Natural disasters – Response & recovery phase
  • Industrial accidents – First approximate damage assessment
  • Security – Identification/assessment of geopolitically critical situations 
  • Safety – Monitoring of sensitive facilities/areas/regions
  • Risk intelligence – Situational awareness/prediction relating to supply chain interruption risk
