A New Emergency Notification System Developed by TÜRKSAT as Part Of EMYNOS Project Turkish Field Trials

Abstract

Türksat, one of the leading operators in the satellite communication business as well as e- government and m-government operations in Turkey, is involved with nExt generation eMergencY commuNicatiOns (EMYNOS) project. EMYNOS project aims to design and implement a Next Generation platform capable of accommodating rich-media emergency calls that combine voice, text, and video, thus constituting a powerful tool for coordinating communication among citizens, call centers and first responders (http://www.emynos.eu/). Connecting EMYNOS infrastructure with m-Government applications in Turkey will allow warning messages to reach many citizens in accordance with three specific use case scenarios. With respect to the Use Case 1, Warning Over Satellite, based upon the emergency warning trigger from KATWARN (for instance an earthquake or terrorist attack warning), users will be able to see an emergency message on their TV screens. The warning message will be provided via Türksat satellite systems.
