SYnergy of integrated Sensors and Technologies for urban sEcured environMent

An integrated SYSTEM for continuous monitoring of compounds to detect hazardous substances.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 787128

Key actions

Due to its complexity, SYSTEM can be summed up in five key actions, corresponding to five out of the twelve Work Packages componing the project. Such actions briefly describe the methodology and technical features needed by SYSTEM to effectively achieve its aims.
Scenario definition, users and system requirements
Data and information fusion
Demonstration in real environment
Technology preparation, development and delivery
Data analysis from utility networks: modelling and validation

Dissemination events

SYSTEM is glad to announce that on 27 May 2021 a live demonstration of the T4i DOVER™ mounted on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, an advanced chemical detector developed by T4i engineering capable of detecting and identifying VOCs will be held at T4i engineering premises. The demonstration will be carried out with the participation of the experienced local drone provider PROBOTEK using actual drones equipped with chemical detectors looking for targeted vapour emissions. Two operational scenarios will be demonstrated, including real-time data acquisition and transfer to a ground control station. Email to by 14 May to join! The event agenda is available here.

On 5 November 2020 BKA/Bavarian State Police participated to the “EXERTER Virtual Conference 2020”. Organised by the BKA’s Department for Explosives and FOI, the conference resulted in fruitful discussions with respect to different national and international projects aiming to counter, prevent, mitigate or detect threats associated with explosives. SYSTEM was presented to share the technologies and analytical methods under development aiming to improve the sensing of explosives. Further to this, the gained practical experiences from the field were presented by LEAs, Emergency and Rescue Services referring to some occurred explosive attacks.

On 23 November 2019 SYSTEM participated to the Stair4Security and NO-FEAR Joint Conference in Rome. The conference was of particular interest to professionals directly involved in CBRNe and DRR incidents, as well as to people involved in European and national security research programmes and to professionals working with standardisation or ethical and data protection to have a better understanding of standardisation and its tools and mechanisms, such as the revised CEN Workshop Agreement. It was also a fruitful moment for SYSTEM to pave the way towards the creation of fruitful synergies with the organisers aiming at developing joint activities, in particular related to standardisation.

On 30 August 2019 SYSTEM participated to the conference "Chemistry for Secure Societies" held in Salerno (Italy) with a poster presentation. The event saw the participation of chemistry scholars, researchers, industries and military forces who discussed about how to combine science with industry and institutions to predict and protect society. Amongst the topics discussed, a special attention was paid on how chemistry should be more focused on sustainability and on how scholars should start thinking about the environmental long-term consequences of their discoveries in chemistry.
