Maritime Safety and Rescue Emergency Response Tools & EDS

ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

Several European Coastguards in charge of Search and Rescue (SAR), marine pollution prevention and response rely on RPS Ocean Science emergency response tools (OILMAP, SARMAP, CHEMMAP) to fulfil their mission. 

For more than 15 years, RPS has customized its modelling tools to adapt to custom mission critical requirements, to search and rescue missing people at sea and to respond to oil spill incidents in European waters. To effectively deploy assets at sea to respond to marine emergencies, RPS has been supporting several European Coastguards with training and software development, and by implementing RPS’ Environmental Data Server (EDS) in charge of collecting a large array of environmental datasets and distributing it to Several Maritime Rescue Coordination operators. 

To ensure the operational readiness of responders, RPS assisted several Coastguards in developing on-line training material for various locations covering both scientific and technical concepts of SAR, oil, and HNS pollution response. By implementing EDS, responders have access to near-real-time access to an array of winds and current, both observations (drifters, HF Radar, offshore moorings) and predictions at global, regional and local scales.

2002

In 2002, OILMAP & SARMAP was implemented in several European coastguards.

2007

In 2007, RPS implemented the EDS (Environmental Data Server).

2008

In 2008, RPS developed the online e-training materiaVirtual Use.

2012

In 2012, several EU coastguards acquired CHEMMAP for HNS response. 

2013

From 2013-2018, new SARMAP functionalities including live database of Search & Rescue Live Units (SRU) are implemented.

2013

From 2013-2018, regular additions of European water metocean data sources into EDS, and implementations of the EDS Viewer (Oceansmap) were completed.
