The project has been structured in 7 Sub-Projects and 38 Work Packages.
The 5 technical SPs are supported by the Project Management & Technical
Coordination (SP0) and Dissemination and Exploitation (SP1) subprojects.
For each sub-mission considered, the functional & technical specifications for prevention, mitigation and crisis management will be defined (SP2) for the selected scenarios at the sub-mission level and at global integration level.
In SP3 and SP4, (for fixed assets and transported assets) will be demonstrated the feasibility of solving the identified railway protection submissions through an efficient and cost effective integration of technologies. Closely reflecting the main needs in the railway sector, these sub-missions will focus on protection of key assets.
SP5 will then propose a coherent architectural and design framework for the sub-missions and integrate them in a global demonstration
Finally SP6 will consider political, economical, social-cultural aspects beside the technological ones to drive towards future design for security strategies
The project will be carried out by:
Dissemination and Exploitation - led by UIC/UNIFE
SP1 will guarantee proper diffusion of knowledge and projects results inside and outside the Consortium.
Functional and Technical Railway Security Specification - led by ASTS/THALES
SP2 will generate a set of functional and technical specifications for the project missions, considering:
SP2 will refine requirements and specifications during project’s life
Integration at Sub-Mission Level (physical & operational assets) - led by ALSTOM/TNO
SP3 will demonstrate the feasibility of solving the identified railway protection sub-missions through an efficient and cost effective integration of technologies.
Closely reflecting the main needs in the railway sector, these sub-missions will focus on protection of key assets:
Integration at Sub-Mission Level (transported assets) - led by THALES 3S/Elsag Datamat
SP4 will design and develop in-laboratory proof-of-concept performance prototypes able to demonstrate the feasibility of the protection of transported assets.
SP4 is split into 4 Work Packages, featuring 4 sub-missions:
Global Integration - Led by Bombardier Transport / Selex Systemi Integrati
SP5 will integrate the set of functional and technical results, developed in SP3 and SP4 at sub-mission level, taking into account security requirements defined in SP2.
This integration will define a system design, specifying the interfaces onboard of trains and within the railway infrastructure System design and will enable train to way-side integration, both for the passenger and the freight markets to set rules for system interoperability between different fleets, and railway operators, across different European countries.
SP5 will propose a coherent architectural and design framework to allow a futureproof affordable deployment
Future Design for Security - Led by TNO/SARAD
SP6 will describe a vision of the long term evolution of the future railway security
system as result of various influence factors and their mutual interactions. The long term foresight
of the railway security allows not only a forward view to the future evolution but it can also be used
for a view from an imaginary point of time in 10-20 years backward to the presence. That backward view allows the evaluation of long-term investments (which must be taken in the presence) with respect to their usefulness during the following years.
In particular, the following steps are necessary:
