REDIRNET - Emergency Responder Data Interoperability Network, will provide a decentralized framework for interoperability for first responders’ systems based on a public meta-data gateway controlled by the agencies themselves via a REDIRNET socio-professional web. Agencies will be able link up to partner agencies of their choice and operational need; they will also be able to manage the scope of such interoperability. To help set up these link-up arrangements REDIRNET will be enhanced with semantic web methods in accordance with the vocabulary and processes of the user community. Inter-operating agencies will need only to develop one gateway (to REDIRNET) leading to a cost effective solution; agent technologies will also be developed to facilitate the integration of user systems into REDIRNET.

REDIRNET project successfully presented research results during final demonstration on 29th of June 2016 in Bratislava. All components functionality were proof against emergency scenario. Last comments were collected from international project supporters, end users and emergency practitioners.
On 29th of June the second and final Demonstration of project REDIRNET is going to take place in Slovakia, Bratislava (Institute of informatics, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Ústav informatiky, Slovenská akadémia vied, Dúbravská cesta 9, 845 07 Bratislava. This event is open for observers. Please register here.
REDIRNET was presented during the HEK.SI ethical hacking/penetration testing conference with the presentation name Consideration of Security Aspects in Development of Europe-wide Data Interoperability Framework for Public Safety Agencies.
In order for REDIRNET to operate effectively and share data and information between connected users the need for current and straightforward integration procedures is an absolute requirement. REDIRNET has been configured so that such integration can be undertaken by end user organisations themselves or by any authorised 3rd party on their behalf. This short manual provides some basic integration guidelines for integrator teams to follow; for more in-depth integration guidance reference is to be made to the additional technical documentation for the whole REDIRNET platform, which can be found on this link .
Project REDIRNET attended the Annual BAPCO Spring International event held this year in Telford, UK on 22 and 23 March 2016. The project made 2 major contributions to the B-APCO event.
Firstly it provided the opening presentation at the event's important 'Technology Showcase Theatre' set in the centre of the exhibition area. Peter Dohanyos, the project's coordinator, provided a 40 minute presentation and question & answer session to a large audience of users and supplier personnel on the project's aims and objectives, its technical achievements and the project's plans for future development and its exploitation potential.The REDIRNET project team then subsequently also carried out a structured successful demonstration of its technical capabilities to a range of users, suppliers and interested parties including representatives from 5 countries (Australia, England, Czech republic, Scotland and Sweden) from Ambulance, Fire & Police agencies at regional and national levels; also in attendance was a major disaster specialist from Melbourne University and an insurance risk analyst expert. The demonstration proved successful with many searching questions arising and animated discussions taking place between attendees and project personnel.
