Re-defining Shelters

Observis and Temet have joined forces to offer a new approach to the underground shelter paradigm, the Smart Shelter System or S3. The S3 concept replaces the out-dated manual shelter systems with fully automatized control of all the life-supporting and -saving hardware of an underground shelter. This is realized by intelligent sensor fusion and integration of all the devices, actuators and controls into one situational awareness software; ObSAS from Observis. Automation significantly increases response capability to outside threats by, for example minimizing reaction times thus providing an unprecedented level of safety and security compared to traditional shelter configurations.

Through the comprehensive interconnection of all system components ObSAS provides the shelter personnel with highly visualised real-time status information of all the devices and functionalities of a shelter. With ObSAS the shelter system can be operated also manually if required.

During crisis, situational awareness of the immediate surroundings of the shelter as well as the rest of the world is crucial. Knowing when it is safe to leave the shelter is as important as knowing how long it is safe to stay in the shelter. As a part of a Smart Shelter System a communication solution is provided offering uninterrupted capability to communicate with, for example command centres and other underground shelters.
