National Security: improving equipment and actions during disasters

TNO wants to improve equipment and the competencies of personnel and restructure implementation capacity in a revolutionary way, with the goal of more effective, efficient and safe action by the operational security services in the event of incidents, disasters and large-scale crises.

This includes costeffective, multidisciplinary action using optimal means of protection and adequate information management. This should produce better, coordinated decision-making at all levels, greater self-sufficiency among citizens following incidents or disasters, and improved information and availability of knowledge to mobilise government, companies and citizens.
