The project is focused on the aviation-security pair.
With eWAS it is intended to realize a model of an integrated Smart-wireless and ICT monitoring system capable of triggering warnings at different alert levels based on information derived from terrestrial and satellite sensors integrated with accurate assessments on construction-structural characteristics, vulnerabilities of the asset associated with different natural and environmental hazards. The data collected from continuous monitoring under operating conditions will enable real-time activation of automatic risk mitigation actions and systems also related to the degree of exposure of the asset. As a test-site, the historical center of the city of Catania and some archaeological areas in eastern Sicily whose tourist-cultural use is subject to exponential growth have been chosen.
What is proposed
EWAS aims to develop new technologies for the protection, preservation and security of historic-monumental buildings, museum properties, art objects and archaeological areas by contributing to strategic planning for better prevention and management of Cultural Heritage.
